Plastic bottles make your life so much simpler. Plastic bottles are lightweight, easy to carry, and strong enough to break. They are the best way to carry and contain many liquids, including water, soft drinks, oil, household cleaners, and baby formula. But what happens when the container is empty?
How bottles can harm the environment
People who care about the environment have been concerned about disposing of plastic after it has been used since the 1970s. These plastic bottles clog up landfills and make it difficult to dispose of trash that cannot be recycled. Plastic can also be harmful to the environment.
People have come together to solve these problems by developing a way for bottle reprocessing into useful items such as clothes, furniture, and new plastic bags, containers, bags, and bottles.

The Process of Reusing Plastic
There are many steps to recycling. First, bottles must be taken from homes and businesses. Next, each plastic bottle should be separated from the metal, glass, and any other items that are being recycled. Plastic bottles can also be sorted according to the type of plastic they are made from. After that, the bottles must be cleaned to remove liquids, food residue, and chemical residue.
The bottles are then ground into small flakes. The bottles are then melted and made into small pellets about the same size as a grain of rice. The pellets are then wrapped up and sold to companies that have the ability to melt them into a variety of products. Think about all the plastic toys, gadgets, and other items you have at home. Many of these items are made from recycled plastic.
