Plastic Bottle Planters

The mass of plastic detritus present in the oceans is so enormous that some call it the “7th continent.” In fact, at the rate that we manufacture and use plastic now, there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans by 2050.

That’s why – now more than ever – we should recycle plastic as much as possible. We don’t want any more of the stuff in our oceans.

Here’s one way to recycle PET bottles. And while you are at it, bond with your kids by asking them to put faces on those grass seed planters. :)
