How can a plastic bottle change your life?

28 Sep

Well, for you that are reading this article with your ass comfortably landed in a soft couch in your fancy house, with a cup of coffee next to you, seated in front of you top-of-the-art computer with great internet connection, probably it can’t change your life much! Actually it can hold your drinks inside of it, that’s good enough, right? WRONG!

As you know there are millions and millions and even more millions of people living below poverty line. But at least they have something that is kinda missing in society nowadays: Creativity to reuse materials and to find new solutions for their day-to-day problems using your “garbage”.

I’m showing you these examples, because I have faith that every time you throw a bottle away in the future, you will think about these people and the importance of such an ordinary object.

Am I saying for you to do the same? No, because luckily you don’t have the same problems as they do, but I want you to be conscious about these realities and to think “what can I do with this bottle? Will I put it in the recycling bin or can I do something different with it?” (At least I hope you recycle your stuff!)

A school made of plastic bottles

In the end they look like this (the 1º pic)! Crazy, huh?

Can you believe that we are responsible for this… :|

Our Generation should do better! What do you think?
