Plastics are the blessing and the curse of our time. Plastics have such a wide range of uses, one of which is packaging in the form of bottles.
Bottles are light and easy to store but like all packaging when we are done they become rubbish filling up our landfills or worse, litter in our beautiful marine environment. Since plastic bottles will be part of our lives for awhile longer it is fun to think about how we might re-use them to extend their usefulness.
Above you can see a project using small bottles that might grow some herbs on your window sill. However, PET drink bottles are easier to handle and you can create a whole mini garden from the root stems of the veggies that are leftover from making last night's salad.
