For all of you out there who are teachers (or youth group leaders at church, etc), I have several bags of empty, clean Powerade bottles with lids that would make good water bottles or used for any other recycling project requiring that type of bottle. I also have a big box of bottle caps of varying colors and sizes. If you can use any of these for art projects, your units, etc, please let me know. I'm at the point where I'm going to have to just recycle them to the recycling center with just one use. I hate doing that with the Powerade bottles because they are good thick bottles.
