Recycling plastic bottles
Many plastic bottles are made with up to 100 % recycled plastic. Synthetic fabrics, fiberfill, carpeting, packaging, polyester clothes, home fabrics, textiles, and new containers are created with recycled plastic. Recycling just five two-liter bottles can produce enough polyester for a square yard of carpet. When you recycle already recycled plastic, you create truly Green decorations and gifts.
Plastic recycling provides a durable material to produce contemporary plastic lumber, patio furniture, roadside curbs, storage trunks and garden benches. Manufacturing new things require electricity, so when you recycle plastic bottles for yard decorations, you save resources and protect the plant. DIY backyard designs and garden decorations are beautiful ways to recycle plastic bottles.
Plastic bottles are made from petroleum, a non-renewable resource. Recycling at home saves oil, electricity, water, and landfill space. Each year, the economic and environmental costs of running a landfill business increase, so plastic recycling helps protect the environment, save money and resources.
