Recycling water bottles

These days it seems like DIY’s are all the rage—and for good reason! DIY projects are a great way to enjoy creative family time while also using up those gizmos and gadgets that would otherwise be thrown away. At Eldorado Natural Spring Water, we love anything that reduces our environmental impact and encourages recycling. That’s why we’re proud to be the very first bottled water company to introduce 100% recycled water bottles and a fully solar powered manufacturing facility.

Although our bottles are already recycled, we figured why stop there? Why not recycle them AGAIN? So, here are ten fun, family-friendly ways to recycle those Eldorado water bottles you may have lying around.


1. Craft a bird feeder. No one will appreciate this DIY more than your feathery friends in the backyard.

2. Use our caps to make a mosaic. Your creation may be on a smaller scale, for example: a planter or an outdoor table top.
