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. :)
Click on any image to start lightbox display. Use your Esc key to close the lightbox.
You’ll need these materials:
- Empty plastic bottles
- Grass seeds
- Googly eyes or cardboard/paper and markers
And these tools:
- Glue gun
- Nail or pen to create holes at the bottom of the bottle
Simply cut the bottles at about 1/3 of its size, and puncture the bottom of it with a nail, creating 3 small holes for excess water to drain.
Then ask your kids to help create the face. They can use the bottle cap as nose, and also draw the eyes on paper or cardboard.
Fill them up with soil, leaving about half an inch of space.
Sprinkle the seeds and add some more soil on top.
With proper care, your kids will see the planters green hair in time!
