  • Dec 27, 2019

By tradition, every three weeks I collect several ways beneficial use of plastic bottles in the country and in the garden. Some of them send me mail subscribers, and some I find myself.

From this recycling can make a lot of useful things, but to create some require special skills or tools. For example, there are craftsmen who weave these baskets of plastic "vines". Products obtained durable and light, but it needs to have hands of gold.

In this article, I planted a simple device that can be obtained from plastic bottles without having special skills and special tools. In addition, we will need quite a bit of recycling. It will be quite a few standard bottles.
