Clueless Bottles Answered

[Location: Buea, Cameroon | Central Africa]

I buy a local fruit juice that is sold in glass bottles about 6 inches high and that can hold about 310ml of liquid.

Funnily enough, the company that fabricates these drinks does nothing to recollect used bottles and neither is there some company set up here for recycling of glass or anything like that. Business-wise, this tells me a lot I could benefit from. However I am now in possession of about 100 of these bottles and I have no clue what to do with them. 

Any suggestions?

-Cheers

Looks like a prime sized bottle for a decent sized homemade capacitor ;-)

That's a good wide neck - you could use them to store your own materials, whether that is sauce or pickle you make yourself, or storing small items like screws or seeds.

They may also be suitable for making jam-jar jets.

Failing that, throw them in your nearest bottle-bank for recycling.

Thanks a lot Kiteman.

You know I could decorate around the bottles and use them as stationery holders. i spend 60% of my time in an office.

But remember that there is no bottle-bank for recycling here--> Cameroon, Central Africa.

Launch one a day, put an email address in each one...
