Look What Can Be Made from Plastic Bottles

shoelaces made from recycled soda bottles

About a month ago my son came up with a very creative new product idea for Pepsi. He was so excited about his idea that he created samples, tested them on his friends and then crafted a product pitch for Pepsi. He looked up where to submit it, wrote his first business letter and rode his bike to the mailbox to mail it. Could this get any cuter?

This week he received a very kind rejection letter from Pepsi along with some really nice Pepsi wearables. Included in the package was really cool shoelaces made from recycled soda bottles. Though his hopes were a little dashed, he was happy with the experience and the gifts.

Eve of Reduction was all over the soda bottle shoelaces! My son let me photograph them before he hung them on display in his room.

This got me thinking about other things made from recycled plastic bottles.
