What Are Some Ways to Re-purpose Plastic Waste?

Plastic waste production is one of the world’s biggest environmental issues right now. As much as we want to minimize using disposable things, we end up bringing home another plastic bag because we tend to forget bringing a reusable grocery bag. We can’t disregard the fact that we are now living in a world where most of our everyday items are disposable. Single use plastic bottles are designed for exactly what it is, single use. It’s not safe to reuse single use plastic bottles for drinking. While most plastic bottles are recyclable, there are also lots of great ways you can reuse them for things other than drinking to minimize waste.

According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) Plastics are one of the fastest segments of municipal solid waste (MSW). In addition, the plastic packaging category of MSW have contributed approx. 14 tons of plastic in 2017. With this dilemma, besides putting your trash on the recycling bin, how about repurposing some plastic waste to further reduce your plastic waste that ends up in landfills.


Here are different ways to repurpose plastic waste:


 In the Kitchen
