(Idea from other BNC members)


I was made. I was structure in a way to look like a plastic bottle. I was scared but I trusted my family. My mum has been through life three times because of the three generous people who took her to the recycling bin. I hoped for that to happen to me. I wished it will.

I was made and put into a pack. I made some new friends there. As we always waited in vans and shelves, we talked about the life we wanted.

One day, a lady pulled me. She pulled me by the neck and placed me into her trolley. She took me home in a bag, surrounded by other plastic packages.

When we got home, she twisted my head off and drank me. I felt as if I loss 150kg. It made me feel very nice. Then a kid got hold of me and gave me clothes! The kid put felt and paper round me and made me into a rocket. The child will play with me all the time and even snuggle with me at night. I felt so lied.

But one day, the lady came back. And this time, she came with a teddy bear. The kid was so happy to see the teddy bear. I loved the way she smiles. It seemed like the day she found me and used me. But then, I was thrown into the bin.

In the bin I lay with other things near me. I was so alone. How I wish I was with my family and friends. I was hoping that I was in a recycling bin so I can get a new life.

Little did I know I was in a litter bin by he street. A truck came an took me to a place where they crushed me and moulded me. Then I was thrown once again onto a pile of trash. How unfair! The people who threw me knew where I belonged yet they didn't move me!

So I lay there. Everyday. Remembering the smile on the little girls face.

    I hate plastic bottles because they just don't rot. Why can't we use reusable bottles instead of throwing away 8 million kg of plastic into the ocean and effect our animals. It has a dramatic effect on the world and it's climate. Thank you for this article. It was interesting

    heart breaking story. It really tugged at my heart strings. I'm so thankful for all the generous people who throw plastic bottles in the recycling to be reused it makes me so proud to see people. I hope people learn from this article and reuse ans recycle anything that is plastic instead of polluting the ocean.

    I think that this is a message to people who don't care
