Ways To Repurpose Used Plastic Water Bottles

 

We use plastic water bottles all the time, but what happens to that plastic when we’re done with it? To avoid all that plastic from ending up in a landfill, it is a good idea to recycle it or repurpose it instead. Below are some fantastic ways to repurpose your plastic water bottles! Check them out. 

Wind Spirals

You can make a wind spiral out of an old plastic water bottle by breaking off the top of a water bottle or other plastic container by bending it until the top breaks off. Then, you form the bottom part of the spiral by cutting off a small piece of the bent water bottle, forming a cone. After this, you make the wind spiral by placing the bottom part of the cone in the center of the top of the water bottle, then winding it around the bottle until the cone encases the top.

Bird Feeder

You can reuse a water bottle as a bird feeder by inserting a small amount of seed inside the bottle and hanging it from a tree. The water bottle will slowly soak up the seed from the tree, and the birds will feed on the water bottle. All you have to do is to place a few extra water bottles around the tree that gets covered by the bird feeder.

To get started, all you need is a water bottle. Penetrate a hole in the bottom of the bottle, and screw in a metal string, which you can find at most hardware stores. Attach a stopper so you can fill the bottle with water, and attach the lid to the bottle so you can fill it. Hang the bottle from a tree branch, and fill it whenever you need to fill it.

Pencil Organizers For Kids

Making a pencil organizer for a kid or a pencil box for school is a creative and inventive idea to make it even more fun and helpful. It will help kids organize their pencils, and they can use it as a storage box for school materials and decorative items. It’s such a simple idea, but it’s a great way to help kids save money and help adults recycle.

Start by washing the bottle using soap and water. Cut the head part off the bottle with a box cutter and split some tissue paper into small pieces. Apply glue onto the bottle with a brush. Attach the tissue papers on it. Allow the glue to dry. Paint the bottle further using paint, labels, or stickers for decorations.

Soda Bottle Sprinkler

A soda bottle sprinkler is a great way to keep an outdoor area green, and it’s also a great way to make sure your lawn doesn’t die from a lack of water. Sprinklers are a great way to enjoy an outdoor feature—which means there are many fun ways to decorate a garden with a sprinkler. 

Start by making sure the bottle’s head fits onto your garden hose. Then, poke some holes in the bottom and sides of the bottle. Next, use a piece of duct tape to attach the bottle to your garden hose. Add a bit of water to give it some weight so that it doesn’t flip over when you turn up the hose. Place the sprinkler on the ground and crank up the hose.

Conclusion

Reusing plastic bottles could help our environment and save precious resources. Plastic water bottles rarely get reused and recycled, and much of the rest ends up in landfills, creating a huge environmental problem. Reusing plastic water bottles is an excellent alternative to throwing away bottles. In addition, reusing plastic water containers helps to save resources and minimizes the amount of waste produced. Therefore, the use of reusable water bottles can help save resources and help the environment.
