Save earth by reusing and recycling plastic bottles

We want our homes to be cleaned, safe and garbage free because it’s our place and no one wants his place to be littered. So, what’s the point of filling the earth with garbage and pollution? Is this not out place? Or are we not supposed to clean and protect planet earth for our future generation? I’m sure this is not the case. Then, this earth day, start doing positive for your planet. The first step could be saving earth’s resources by reusing the materials to stay earth friendly.

Beginning with the nearest possible thing you have right now; water bottles. We all know that hydration is essential. It is also assumed that plastic water bottles aren’t exactly eco-friendly, to say the very least. Since buying water for the daily requirement is inevitable, so there’s no difficulty in using a washable, reusable one in our tasks to get our regular dosage of water. But, still, what do you do to the bottles when you don’t feel like refilling?

The previous year, 22 billion water bottles were thrown into garbage dump or burners to do more harm to the earth. Recycling seems like the apparent solution, but what if there was an improved and straighter way? Reprocessing your water bottles can not only help you, but it’s environmentally friendly, too— what a fantastic win/win picture!

So how should you actually use again those bottles? After all, simply filling them up and sipping out of them again isn’t the ultimate idea, so what does that leave us? Making more resourcefully! Here’s how you can reuse your plastic bottles in more creative and different ways.

Make funnels

The easiest and simplest thing you can get done with bottles is making a funnel by just cutting off the top and flipping the wrong side up. If using it in your kitchen makes you uneasy, feel free to use for sheeting down motor lubricant or diesel.

Make nozzles

When you need to pour liquids quite accurately and precisely, grabbing a water bottle is the simplest of all. Warily heat the bottle cap then slowly squeeze with a toothpick, being careful not to push all the way through the cap. As soon as the newly-moulded cap is chilled, trim off the end, and there you are! You can use it for cream and topping bags, yet again, if that makes you nervy, it’s also a great trick for lubricating hard-to-reach spaces. It’s also great for children’s craft projects.

Personalize things

This part is the coolest of all! You can really use a water bottle to coat your jars and containers, protecting your homemade stickers and letting you to personalize stuff in an even more permanent way. Chop off the top and foot of the water bottle, and then put the band of plastic around the container and on top of your sticker. Use a hair dryer or heat and look the heat shrinks the plastic around the jar.
