    Default 10 Things we can do with plastic

    "We must save the world, plastics should be banned....blah, blah, blah!" There is a lot of hullabaloo about why we shouldn't use plastic and they are all correct. But while finding a more eco-friendly substitute to plastic may take time, here are some really fun and creative things you can do with plastic waste.

    Glitter in a bottle: Take a small empty plastic bottle, fill it half with oil and half water, add food coloring and glitter and voila! A great toy for babies to play with. Why babies? Even the older ones!

    Yarn holder: Cut off the base of an empty plastic bottle and clean it out. Stuff in your yarn and pull strand through the mouth of the bottle. Tape the base back onto the bottle. With winter here and your aunty knitting a sweater for you, this easy to make yarn holder will keep yarn from getting tangled while knitting or crocheting.

    Holiday plant waterer: Remove the cap and cut off the bottom of the bottle. Invert the bottle and fix the mouth into the soil in the pot. Fill this inverted bottle with water and allow your plants to be gradually watered when you are away for a few day.

    Toilet tank trick: Fill a bottle or two with water and drop it into your toilet flush tank. You'll displace enough water to save a half gallon to a gallon with every flush. Most toilets flush just fine with a little less water.

    Leak proofing: Slip a small plastic bag under the lids of jars for a leak-proof seal. Especially good for items like pickle and chutney.

    Substitute gloves: Wear bags as gloves to keep your hands clean when touching raw meat. You can even wear plastic bags as 'gloves' while applying colour or henna to hair.
