Recycle detergent bottles as watering cans

Detergent bottles are great as watering cans because they have spouts and are durable enough for outside climate. Recycling and reusing emptied detergent bottles help to keep plastics out of the landfills.  Plastic bottles are not biodegradable and take space in landfills. 

In addition it's inexpensive  because these bottles can be used in another capacity. In order to create nice clean bottles, remove the sticker label by using dishwashing detergent, or any adhesive remover. 
Be creative by painting the bottles or use chalk board paint to label the watering pots.
