PET Bottles: Upcycled Watter Bottles at designboom

We all know that bottled water is a blight on the planet, but despite our best efforts to curtain its use, it remains the fastest growing beverage industry in the world; 1.5 million tons of plastic are used to bottle water every year, and sales of bottled water have increased by 500 percent over the last decade. That's a lot of damn plastic.

designboom has dug up a handful of innovative ways to not just recycle these bottles, but to upcycle them into something more useful than just a single-use water bottle. "Watering Can", pictured above, is a slick adapter to turn just about any PET (no, not that pet) plastic bottle into a plant watering can; hit the jump to see a couple more slick implementations. ::designboom via ::Apartment Therapy: Greendesignboom-pet-recycling-water-filter.jpg
