Creative Reuse Challenge, March Water Bottles

Creative Reuse Challenge at DIY Studio
Bottled water produces up to 1.5 million tons of plastic waste per year. According to Food and Water Watch, that plastic requires up to 47 million gallons of oil per year to produce. And while the plastic used to bottle beverages is of high quality and in demand by recyclers, over 80 percent of plastic bottles are simply thrown away.

So what can be done with water bottles rather than recycling them? Some brave DIYers decided to upcycle theirs. Check out these submissions and be sure to vote for your favorite on DIY Studio’s facebook page.

With Ron’s, I can’t decide if I like the storage solution or the nifty cool watch parts/gears better!
