Have you ever noticed the numbers on the bottom of your plastic containers? They are inside a triangle. These numbers indicate the different types of plastic. Number 1: soft drink bottles, honey jars etc can be recycled into pillow and sleeping bag filling. Number 2: Milk bottles can be made into recycling bins.
Number 5: Yoghurt containers and icecream containers can be made into pegs and toothbrush handles.
