All From a Plastic Bottle!

It's a warm day in June. You've been working in the hot sun for over an hour, and decide to pull out your plastic water bottle for something cool and refreshing. It doesn't take long to empty its contents, and you happen to see a recycle bin a short distance away. What luck!! Tossing the bottle into the bin, you wonder what will happen to it after it's sorted at a recycling facility and taken to the mill. You know that #1 PET is a commonly recycled plastic, so you pull out your phone to research the water bottle's destination.


This is what you find:

what plastic bottles become

You smile to yourself as you finish your work, because you can't help but wonder what your water bottle will be in a few weeks' time.
