7 Clever Ways To Reuse Plastic Bottles Around The Home
Sadly, the world is drowning in plastic. It’s become such a regular part of our day, that we don’t even seem to notice it anymore. However, the nature around us does notice and it has consequences. While we may try to do our part by recycling old bottles, containers, bags, only 14% of the world’s plastic waste actually gets recycled. Yikes! This is because old plastic is expensive to sort and collect, and it also degrades after a couple of uses. Not only that but the more certain plastics are recycled, the more toxic they become. So, why not try to find another use for the plastic lying around your home? Today we will show you some clever ways to reuse plastic bottles around the home and make them into something useful.
