ZERO WASTE TIP OF THE MONTH – 5 Litre Plastic Bottle

5 litre plastic bottle

HOW I ENDED UP WITH A BUNCH OF 5 LITRE PLASTIC BOTTLES…

I was stockpiling water in 5 litre plastic containers when day zero was imminent. I was afraid that we would be left high and dry when and if the taps were switched off. Now that I have large rain tanks collecting our storm water, these bottles are just taking up space. I am hesistant to drop them off for recycling so researched ways to upcycle them.

There are quite a few innovative ideas hence I decided to post the pictures I found rather than explain one idea, step by step. These are easy projects to complete as you can see from the pictures. The websites, with more information, are included in some of the pictures.

Have fun and please share your upcylce ideas with us 🙂
