Recycled plastic materials are eco-friendly, durable, and flexible, making them an excellent alternative to more traditional materials when used to manufacture a variety of products. Recycling plastic bottles and packaging has never been more important, but you can also recycle plastic simply by reusing it.
Here are some easy and fun ways to create your own environmental piece using plastic instead of throwing it away. You can even buy recycled plastic material from www.rawtechtrade.com/polymer/recycled.
If you like gardening, you will find many uses for plastic. Plastic is durable and highly resistant to the elements, so use it as a seed marker in the soil, or use a sturdy bottle to form a small shovel to use in the garden when planting seeds or pulling weeds.
Large plastic bottles make excellent bird feeders. Cut the bottom of the bottle a few inches, punch holes in two opposite places, insert chopsticks into them, then fill the bottom with bird seeds. Make a few more holes to hang a piece of string, then hang it on a tree branch or window and you'll have a great little bird feeder.
One of the best uses of plastic is in the manufacture of furniture. Apart from being more environmentally friendly than other traditional materials, it is also an excellent material. Recycled stools, for example, are durable, safe, flexible, and very inexpensive, which is why many people choose them over wooden models.
