Since their invention, plastic bottles have always supposed a big contamination problem for our planet. Only in the USA 60 millions of water plastic bottles are used at day; 30 millions in Europe and approximately 100 million worldwide everyday. The problem of all this consume it is that plastics last forever and one of this bottles that we use everyday takes 700 years before it starts to decompose and it can take up to 1000 years to be fully degraded. It is for this reason that recycle plastics and try to find to them other uses it is so important because if not we are collapsing our planet.
