For those of you who don't recycle (SHAME ON YOU!) here is a great way to reuse your plastic water bottles. During my cleanse I had to flush my system out with purified bottle water. I was upset that I had to buy a case of water-knowing that they would have to be recycled thus consuming waste. As I was slugging down Smart Water after Smart Water, I realized that there must be a way I can reuse them. I saved all the water bottles and figured out that these would make great planters for plants!!
So here is what I did: I cut the water bottle in half and kept the bottom portion
Then I filled the water bottle with halfway with dirt, added the flowers and filled the rest of the empty space with more dirt
And here is the final product! I put all the flower-filled water bottles into these steel crate containers that I got from an antique store
Looks pretty good! Once I find more empty water bottles or other items to reuse, I will have plants in all my crates.
Easy as 1, 2, 3! Once the weather here in Chicago is more promising, I will move the crates out onto my patio.
Live well. Live Pure.
