One of the most regular comments we get on our recycling videos is how you guys don't have access to the tools that we are very lucky to have. So we thought we'd show you how this whole process can be done with stuff you likely will already have at home. We show you how to take plastic bottle tops and turn them into coasters, jewellery and keyrings with simple tools. If you want to pick up any of the things that we use in this video then check out the links to the tools below.

No excuses now! Get out there and start recycling at home! If we all take responsibility for our plastic waste then we can prevent plastic from ending up in landfill or polluting our oceans ♻️
