    What I do when I have plastic water bottles is in the spring I cut the tops off to where it starts to flare out, cut the bottoms off and take them out to my garden, bury them 1/2 way down, put some soil in the bottle, put a tomato plant in each top part that I cut off, top of the bottle pointing down into the soil, and put it into the soil in the bottle, add more soil to cover part of the stem and press the top into the soil with the plant sticking up. This way, I only have to water the bottle and not waste water on the surrounding areas. Then, I put mulch or straw around the bottles to keep the weeds down. If you want to plant seeds, cut the bottom off of the bottom and fill the bottle with soil, don't cut the top off, and put in your seeds. If it gets cold out, you can just put the cap back on to make a mini greenhouse. Put a couple of holes in the cap for ventilation. You cut the bottoms off so that the plant's roots can exit and won't get root bound. You can even poke holes in the sides so that roots can sneak out of them. Make them about 1/2 the size of a dime.

    We need some kind of national standards, or much recycling is going to be a waste of time.
    It's obvious from my community's recycling bins that many people have no idea of the rules - perhaps having moved from areas which had different rules for recycling.
    I used to use a lot of ink for my business but I'm winding down. I now buy ink cartridges from 123ink. Very inexpensive. More than 50% off name brand.

    When we take our cans in to get recycled they will not take crushed cans. Yuo also have to be fingerprinted in case they were reported stolen I guess.
