70+ things you can do with plastic bottles

since we seriousely started this whole sustainability thing/thought we are constantly looking for new things with items that would usually go to the garbage like toilet paper rolls, egg cartons, plastic bags, cans.... and of course plastic bottles. even though we dont use that many (we drink filtered tap water and soda or coca cola are pretty rare in our fridge) we sitll end up with some bottles once in a while. At the moment rotem brings them to a recycling station with all the other plastic and paper but look at all the other wonderfull things you can do with them!

  4. We often dispose plastic to trash which goes to landfills and never been recycled, instead reuse and recycle plastic, glass or cans. Save environment.
