Recycling water bottles for playground fun

What do you do when you're done drinking a water bottle in school? Obviously, you throw it out. But this idea will inspire you to not throw your bottles out. Two teachers in our school gave every class a basket for their used water bottles. Every week those teachers will take each basket and recycle the bottles instead. Each bottle is worth five cents. The recycling money will go toward very fun playground equipment, like jump ropes, hula hoops and balls. Those empty bottles mean fun for everyone just by recycling your water bottles.
