Plastic Bottle Craft – Upcycled Storage Container


Upcycling 101 demonstrates a handy plastic bottle craft, making an upcycled zipper container from plastic bottles. There’s no audio on this video but on-screen instructions are provided.

Apparently they tried attaching the zip using hot glue, but it peels off when you try to open or close the zip.  The hot glue also makes the plastic warp.

Did You Know?

Americans used about 50 billion plastic water bottles last year. However, the U.S.’s recycling rate for plastic is only 23 percent, which means 38 billion water bottles – more than $1 billion worth of plastic – are wasted each year.
