It may be just a plastic bottle to you . . .

Next time you empty a plastic bottle consider what you might do with it. It could be used as a cheap way to water your plants, or as a wasp trap or a mole deterrent.

However, someone in Sitio Malagaya in the Phillippines has found a really useful 
way to recycle them.

    Wonderful idea. And so simple.

  2. Well, it's obviously a bright idea, but I must be getting thick: I just can't see how it works.

  5. Apparently the idea was designed and developed by students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Not sure if it works in the dark!!

  7. What a brilliant idea! It might not help much at night but it certainly makes the days brighter. I don't buy a lot of plastic bottles and the ones I don't recycle get new uses. In the winter months when we do spay/neuter clinics the kittens sometimes get cold even though we are in a warm building. I fill a small plastic bottle with hot water, wrap it in a towel, and use it to warm them.
