Ok, Thrifty people, that is but just 10 ways to reuse that soda bottle you just discarded. I have probably another hundred more, but I will let you experiment and discover other reuses.
It's fun and it saves you money and helps the Planet.
Happy past Earth Day

Here is an idea about how to create amazingly inexpensive but very attractive soda bottle tomato planters. As you can see from the picture, these planters make excellent showpieces and are sure-fire conversation starters.

for more information on how to make these planters. Thanks
Fill with warm water and wrap a towel around bottle to put in pet bed to keep pet warm.
These are wonderful. Thank you!
For a smaller bottle, an interesting craft to occupy young students on summer vacation....
create a stained glass effect.
Tear vividly colored tissue paper into small pieces.
Using a watered-down white glue solution, glue
pieces to the bottle randomly or in a pattern of choice.
Result is a beautiful work of art to display or use as vase.
Two more ways to reuse an empty 20-ounce plastic drink bottle:
Put about an inch or two of gravel/pebbles/marbles/ pennies -- whatever -- in the bottle, put the top back on, and you now have a handy noisemaker to shake at little league ballgames, New Years parties, etc.
Cut the top spout part off, plus an inch or two, and you now have an instant funnel to use for adding fluids to your car, filling hummingbird feeders, etc.
I USE THE BOTTLES AS ICE PACKS IN MY COOLER. I WASH AND RINSE THEM REALLY GOOD, FILL WITH CLEAN DRINKING WATER AND LEAVE SPACE AT TOP THEN FREEZE. I USE THEM WHEN WE PICINIC OR CAMPING. YOU CAN USE THE WATER OUT OF THEM TO DRINK IF YOU DON'T HAVE A WATER SUPPLY. THE SMALLER ONES ARE GREAT TO FREEZE WATER IN . TOSS IN A COOLER BEFORE YOU GO GROCERY SHOPPING TO KEEP YOUR FOOD COLD ON HOT DAYS. HAPPY CAMPING, SEAMTRESS
Or, in our province, you can use the bottle in an even more enviromental way: take it back to the store for recycling. They'll give you money, you'll help clean up the enviroment.
