Plastic Bottle Solar Lights

Category Reusing

This is a great way to reuse plastic bottles and save money on power. In the United States this idea could be used in sheds, chicken coops, or any structure with a tin roof. These plastic bottle lights create an amazing amount of light without any electricity. What a great idea and such a touching story. I hope you enjoy.

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.

Thanks for sharing this video.

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!
