It might be one of the greatest inventions of the early 20th century. And yet it might be one of the worst curse for our planet too.
We usually call Plastic those materials which clearly aren't natural (other than wood, wool or metal), even though most are produced from petroleum.

Too often we encounter it alongside the road, on fields and beaches, in forests and rivers. Plastic is "vulnerable" to sunlight, it decolors, gets softer through the heat and then gets brittle. It does decompose, but this frees toxic substances. Best is to recycle it. Unfortunately, not every kind of plastic is recyclable.

But the following works give you some ideas how to reuse your plastic at home.

Oh my! These are are so cool~ :icongleeplz: I kind of wonder about making plastic bracelets. I hear plastic has a lot of chemicals that you probably don't want on you or in your system.
