We drink a TON of bottled water in my house. My husband diligently collects the used bottles and takes them to the recycling center when they start to get out of hand. Sometimes, though, I think there must be some plastic bottle crafts that we could be doing with them.
A quick web search tells me this is definitely the case.
- Recycled Rocket Craft from No Time for Flash Cards
- Papier-Mache Airplane from Inna’s Creations
- Water Bottle Pencil Cases from Duitang
- “Dew” It Yourself Jewelry Stand from Epbot
- Felt Bottle Bracelet by Diane Gilleland on Think Crafts
- Relax Bottle/Time Out Timer from My Crazy Blessed Life
- Holder for Charging Cell Phone from Make It & Love It
- Apple Shaped Boxes from Creative Jewish Mom
- Desk Organizer by Diane Gilleland on Craft
- Pop Bottle Firefly from Crafts for all Seasons
So are you recycling your used water bottles or making plastic bottle crafts? A little of each maybe?
Here are some important facts about recycling and Arrowhead’s new ReBorn bottle that you may not know:
- U.S. plastic beverage bottle recycling rates are only at about 30%
- 2.8 Billion plastic bottles ended up in California landfills in 2011.
- Even though a package says it is “100% recycleABLE”, that does not mean it is made with recyclED plastic. It just means it CAN BE recycled. In fact, most containers are not made of recycled plastic.
- Arrowhead’s new ReBorn™ bottle is made with 50% recycled plastic and demonstrates how the plastic you recycle can be given a new life.
- Due to the limited supply of high quality recycled plastic, Arrowhead needs your help in recycling so they can continue to use more recycled plastic in their products.
