Recycling is important – that is a message that’s drilled into our heads from a very young age. However, it is sometimes hard to be motivated to recycle plastics such as water and soda bottles when you never see the use in that.
Making your own recycling projects is a great way of repurposing those harmful plastics, thus saving the environment. It is also a fantastic way to learn about the value of recycling and giving materials a new life. And if that wasn’t great enough already, through DIY recycling projects you can make new pieces which are handy and useful, thus saving you money. These crafts are usually unique, as it’s really unlikely that anyone will have made exactly the same piece as you.
Need inspiration before you start hoarding soda bottles? These projects will leave you bursting with ideas, we can safely promise that.
DIY Plastic Bottle Toy Basket
Big water bottles are an obvious choice for when you need an improvised bucket. This isn’t just any bucket though, but it’s still pretty easy to make if you cut the top of the bottle off and add a nice, fun trim and some handles with fabric or ribbon. It will be a cool and inexpensive way to store smaller toys or childcare necessities.
