Uses for Plastic Pop Bottles

We don't worry about what to do with plastic soda bottles, and they never reach the landfill. All our sodas, when purchased, have a recycle fee added 5 or ten cents depending on size of bottle (and aluminum cans, plastic & glass water & juice bottles, etc.). When returned to a recycler, we get our money back--it's as simple as that. (Some of you may remember the old "no deposit no return" days that followed the deposits charged on bottles, glass in those days--and we returned 'em to the retailer for our deposit back.) And other recyclable glass & plastic that doesn't have a recycle fee added? We have a recycler that pays for them as well. Not as much as the "paid deposit" ones, but something's better'n nothing, especially these days!
I reallly did enjoy the story and just a simple solution to a bad problem. I thought this would be a good teaching aid and a fun project to do with my grandson. We could both learn from the project.
