6 cool ways to reuse plastic bottles that we bet you haven't tried yet:

Wow I read about the amazing stories about the new entrepeneurs that have made their bank balance a little prettier. I have an idea and would like to know what process must I under go to melt the plastic colddrink bottles or the plastic containers we buy salads in or a piece of cake you might have bought from the general store? I would like to mould the PETE into another container for reuse. Can anyone out there help me how I do that? Needless to say I cannot afford to have a huge recycling place that must first be washed, then crushed, then what ever the next step is…………….. Please help, as I would love to be the next entrepeneur to clean up the world.
