I have a lot of SoBe life water bottles right now. A lot! I have been playing the Heads or Tails game online (hoping to win a MacBook Pro) and I keep winning buy 1 get one free coupons. The SoBe drinks were on sale buy 1 get one free last week at CVS so I got a bunch for free (CVS paid for their "one" and the coupon took care of the other "one").I have been playing around to see how I could repurpose thesebottles and here's what I've come up with so far.
Please pardon the grainy phone photo! I tried cutting them and realized that they are most easily cut in a spiral. I cut just a little of this one and left a cup on the bottom. When I showed it to my 6-year-old he begged me for it. It stretches like a slinky and might be fun storage for little things in a kid's room.
Here is one that I colored with permanent marker and then cut
all the way instead of leaving a cup at the bottom. Party!
This was made by cutting off a top portion and inverting it into the bottom portion. It's just one bottle, pay no attention to all those others you see! I don't know if the opening is narrow enough to trap the bugs but in theory if you do this with a regular water bottle and put something in the bottom like juice or ripe fruit you can trap fruit flies and more. It's based off similar ideas I have seen on The Idea Room and Instructables. If you have any ideas for reusing SoBe bottles or any plastic bottles, I'd love to hear about them!
