What to do with Soda Bottles?!

Did you know eight out of 10 plastic water bottles become landfill waste?
So much waste what do we do with it?! How can we keep up and make a difference?
Jay and Annie at the Blue Rock Station have one solution and have written an excellent booklet about how to build a soda bottle greenhouse using 2-liters!

Using stacks of 2-liters bottles, you can create a wall of plastic that replaces the need for standard greenhouse plastic walls.
Did you know that 500 2-liters of Mountain Dew equals 440,000 calories!
That's 124,000 grams of sugar!
WOW! That's a lot of sugar!
Why do I know this?
I had some loyal MD drinkers save their
2-liters for me so we could build our own Soda Bottle Greenhouse! Jay and Annie directions have been great and easy to follow.
Visit One20 to see how it is going later this spring!
