An extensive study which has been conducted last year estimated that about eight million metric tons of our plastic waste enter the oceans from land every year. A large portion of that plastic waste consists of plastic bottles. Plastic pollution is a serious problem, and it will take an ongoing effort from all of us to make things better.
One excellent way to do your part and help reduce plastic waste is through DIY projects. Luckily, the Internet is full of fun ideas in case you’re short on inspiration.
As it turns out, there are many different ways you can turn your plastic trash into something useful – and actually have fun in the process. PET plastic, which is what most plastic beverage bottles are made, is a DIY superstar.

For instance, you can use it to make a one-of-a-kind holder for your dishes by simple cutting a few holes in a large-sized plastic bottle. Or you can make a candle holder that won’t cost you anything!
These are just two of the 38 creative ideas included in the video below.
