DESCRIPTION: With this project we have prepared, we try to contribute to recycling. Instead of throwing away pet bottles, you can make a trash bin with these. In a minimal perspective, we are going to be saving our nature from these plastic bottles and creating a litter box which is likely to save other litters being disposed in the street. (Guess we have a win-win situation).  We will need a great number of plastic bottles to create our trash bin. By clustering these bottles together, you will have made a very practical litter box.

  1. Collect 2 plastic bottles

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • We start by making the covers of plastic bottles to make our project.
  • Now we will combine the bottles into two. We cut the bottom of one of the plastic bottles and place the other bottle under it. We pierce the plastic bottle without cutting.
  • We cover the plastic bottles we have assembled as a pair, from the outside of the wire as follows.
  • The bottom of the garbage can be left behind after the garbage is covered with plastic bottles. For this, we cut cardboard cartons and place them on the bottom side according to the bottom side, thus ending our project.
  • You can start using the trash can where you have made with plastic bottles. However, when you use it outside, you may be interested in a sample recycling project.
