It is not necessary to get rid of the plastic bottles that we consume every day, that is why we bring you some ideas to encourage you to recycle plastic bottles.
Recycling is a process that transforms used materials, which would otherwise be a simple waste, into very valuable resources. The collection of used bottles, cans, newspapers, etc., are reusable and hence, taking them to a facility or collection point is the first step in a series of steps that generate a large amount of financial, environmental and, of course, social benefits, both locally and globally.
We can also recycle in our own homes, making useful items that we consider garbage. Recycling should not be left for the companies alone, here are a few ideas you can build upon.
FEEDER TOY FOR DOGS
If your dog is curious and likes to experiment with new toys, it will keep him busy and entertained with a very easy build game.
HANGING PLASTERS TO GROW TOMATOES
Learning how to make a pot to plant your tomato plants in plastic bottles is a simple project. The perfect solution for people who want to enjoy homegrown tomatoes, but don’t have a patio. We can grow our own food, even with very few meters.
STORAGE SYSTEM WITH PET CARRIERS
An original storage system with 40 rigid plastic bottles or carafes that come from some typical uses, usually cleaning or laundry items.
A BROOM WITH PLASTIC BOTTLES
A project that teaches us how we can give a second life to our used plastic bottles, making ourselves a broom with plastic bottles.
CHRISTMAS TREE, REUSING PET BOTTLES
With green PET bottles, of which there are many on the market, we can make a visually very attractive Christmas tree.
ROBOTS WITH RECYCLED PLASTIC BOTTLES
Antoine Geoffrion creates robots made entirely from recycled plastic bottles. Some of the robots are real works of art that, in some cases, can pass as toys that we can buy in any toy store.
PET BOTTLE STRING LAMPS
The idea is to turn waste into something of value and some communities are learning with this project to make lamps with plastic bottles.
LAMPS WITH SMALL PET BOTTLES
Go ahead, the procedure is quite simple and the result is more than acceptable.
FLORAL LAMP FOR THE GARDEN OR HOUSE TERRACE
A very original garden lamp, one of which you can find in many stores, but with the great difference that you make it yourself and that, for this, you will use recycled materials.
MOBILE CHARGING STATION
A very cool project but with which you have to be very careful. It must be done in such a way that the plastic is not in direct contact with the plug, placing some insulation between them so that it can never become dangerously hot.
With a simple PET bottle, we can make a spectacular house for the birds in our garden. They will thank you!
VERY FUNNY GATUNA POT
The “Cat Pot”. From bottles of lemonade … to hanging pots!
JEWELER or MAGAZINE RACK
Using the bases of the bottles, a tube and nuts to tie the tube, you can make a very original jewellery box, play with different sizes of bottles. Also, a very modern magazine rack can anchor well to your wall or a surface.
A bottle can be too useful to organize your cutlery, especially the knives; Make sure to cut the nozzle to fit and sand or tape so that you don’t get cut on the burrs from the plastic. Add fine stone and there they will be well anchored.
With a gallon bottle, you can make a practical pencil holder, just cut it according to the image below, add your pencils and that’s it!
