How save the planet one piece of trash at a time
You just finished up the bottle of soap yesterday and you're planning to throw it out today. Instead of throwing it out, turn it into something new. That soap bottle could become a charging dock for an iPod Touch. People have made whole Halloween costumes out of candy bar wrappers. Pens out of ink when combined with leds and some proper wires can be glow sticks that last more than one day. Two really good websites for making things out of trash and empty bottles and such are Popular Science.com and Instructibles.com. So remember, before you throw out that old soap bottle or dried out Sharpie, make sure it has a use to you or to the enviroment.
