UPCYCLING PLASTIC BOTTLES- PET

We have already made a couple of posts on this subject but here we are just going to add a couple more ways that we have found to re-use PET plastic bottles. It's short and sweet.

Obviously it doesn't take a rocket scientist to work out that ANY container, made out of ANY material can be useful as a bucket or a raised plant pot, no explanation needed, look how successful the plant nurseries are on the roadsides.



Other ways one can use PET bottles? It depends on the size. In many parts of the world the 1 litre PET bottles are being stuffed with waste/and or Sand so that they can be used as building blocks.

At the Sands we don't have waste PET but after collecting from other hotels and restaurants we have enough 5, 10 and 20 litre bottles that we can use them in other ways. Look how much our Chickens love their laying 'boxes' made out of PET bottles.



We also use these as feeders to try to minimise the waste of Layers Mash (supplements to egg laying chickens) when the chickens scratch the layers mash from more open feeders like trays.

When these bottles are cut often the top of the bottle is not used, it just becomes waste.. or a hanging grow pot for mint (see top photo)                  





Or even raised stands to protect fruit against burrowing ground dwelling pests. (Sweet Melons)
