Turn your old water bottles into vases

One big contributor to climate change is human waste. So what can we do with all of our plastic bottles? While there are many ideas online, this alternative use for a water bottle caught my eye.

Cut the bottle in half

Paint the bottle, mine is painted blue and green in honor of the earth and conservation. Let it dry, this takes a long time. 

You have a couple of options next: you can plant an already-sprouted plant or you can plant seeds. If you’re choosing to plant an already grown plant, be sure to pick something that lives well in pots. You might want to do this outside so that you don’t make a mess. Move the plant from the pot it came in the store to the painted water bottle.

If you’re planting seeds follow the instructions on the bag. Be sure to follow the care instructions for the plant.
