Use of Plastic bottle in Garden

 

Today, plastic bottles have become a major threat to the environment. Most people throw them away after use. It does serious damage to the environment. These are some of the bad effects of plastic bottles.

Water pollution

Harmful to animals

A plastic bottle containing water is one of the main causes of leprosy

Additionally, plastic soil takes hundreds of years to rot. Therefore, the main way to protect plastic bottles from environmental pollution is to recycle or reuse plastic bottles.

Plastic bottles contain bisphenol A (BPA), and are used to make plastic hard and transparent. BPA is an endocrine inhibitor that has been shown to be detrimental to human health. It is closely related to many health issues, some types of cancer, neurological disease, premature puberty in girls, lack of fertility in women, premature birth and newborns just to name a few. BPA enters the body from plastic contact such as bottled beverages and cleaning products.

Plastic bottle caps are not currently recyclable. Like plastic bags, they often fall into the seabed and into the stomachs of various animals that make them mistaken for food.


There are many ways to reduce plastic pollution and one of the simple but creative ideas is bottle gardening.Bottle gardening is the process of growing plants in glass or plastic bottles. Bottle gardens are often used as alternative gardens in areas with little or no outdoor space, such as high-rise apartments.They are easy to create and maintain, are attractive and unique decoration items, and are very environmentally friendly, not to mention they are suitable for survival even in the summer. Even it will make our garden more beautiful with our DIY tricks and help reduce the bottles to be polluted.

I got a chance to see this kind of beautiful ideas in Surkhet, Nepal. I hope this will inspire you too.

    Hey Bal!
    It's Lisa:)

    Such a great idea you have got here!
    It's really nice and creative how you have your garden decorated with plastic. Now, this is true 'upcycling'! This way we can reuse the wasted plastic and further, we can prevent the usage of more plastics because if it weren't for recycling, we would have bought other decoration materials in the market which could possibly be made of plastic.

    Great idea!!
    Thank you for sharing with us:)

    Hello Bal krishna

    This is a great suggestion. Using plastics bottles will save quite a lot of money, since it is easy find them in cheap prices. I will definitely try this when I get to have my own garden. I hope some other creative methods of utilizing the plastic wastes like this are developed so they are not just thrown away in the ocean.

    Thank you for the great report with creative idea!

    Hello Bal Krishna dai!!
    I hope you are fine and doing great.

    Plastic is threat to environment and is equally of harm to living creatures.
    We must minimize the use of plastics and find its alternatives.
    Plastic bags must be replaced by paper bags.

    Keep writing and shining.

    Hope to know more from you.

    Warm regards,
    Meena
