Creative Projects to Recycle Plastic Bottles

Creative Projects to Recycle Plastic Bottles

A list of several "how-tos" all about plastic bottles that you can make at home.

I love the instructables where we can always find lots of easy and creative projects to make at home.

It’s also a great site to find all kind of recycling ideas, what is something that passionates me.

I was searching the web for ways of recycling plastic bottles and I stopped at the instructables because there were so much fun projects that I went no further. I will try later to collect other projects, from other sites but this time I only list several “how-tos” from the instructables all about plastic bottles. I hope you enjoy them.

Used plastics are not good for the environment. Recycling them will lessen the waste that we are supposed to throw to the environment.
