Why You Should Be Making Plastic Bottle Crafts
There is enough plastic tossed into the garbage annually to circle the globe (at least) four times and billions of pounds of plastic can be found in our ocean waters. Plastic is everywhere in our lives. From where you are sitting now, you can probably see at least a dozen plastic items. From the computer or phone you are using to the plastic water bottle you’re sipping, plastics are literally everywhere we look. They even show up in face washes and other toiletries. Americans throw away over half of all of the plastic they use, meaning we only recover or recycle five percent of the plastic we use each and every year!
While recycling is a wonderful solution to all of that waste, reusing materials is much more effective as you are not wasting any energy via fossil fuels to create your recycled art or plastic bottle crafts!
