Recycling and Practical Use for Bottles

Yes, I'm a tree hugger. Yes, I'm that person who always reminds others to recycle. I'm a pack-rat at times, hoarding things that I could possibly use for some other purpose in the future. I load scrap paper in the printer so that I can print on the back side of page. My fiancé sent me this link last week. I loved the idea so much that I had to share it here.

It is a lot like the Copco gadget that you can buy in stores for $5-10. But isn't it more fun and economical to make it yourself? Some uses I can think of are: chocolate chips, shredded coconut, raisins, etc.



All you need to do is:
1. Clean out an empty bottle and cut the bottom of bottle off.
2. Slide the plastic bag through the inside and up through the mouth of the bottle.
3. Fold back the plastic.
4. Screw on the lid. Tada!

Here is the Copco version:

I totally load scrap paper to print on the back all the time too haha. I bring paper home from work to do that so it's not wasted. This use for bottles is such a great idea! So simple and effective.
