I always find myself in need of a scoop around the yard for everything from measuring pet food, plant food, adding some garden soil or fine decorative gravel around a plant or removing Fido's fertilizer offerings from my flower bed.
While I don't want to use any of my house hold scoops I use for food outdoors these little Go Green Scoops can be made in seconds and fit the bill quite nicely. You also get two scoops from one bottle and when they are worn out you can toss them into the recycling bin to go to the recycler.
All you need is any plastic bottle and a sharp knife.

Step 1: Materials Needed
Take any size plastic bottle, depending on the size of the job you are doing.
Step 2: Cut
Remove the cap for easier cutting. Decide on the size you want your scoop to be and make a diagonal cut all the way through.
Step 3: Separate
Separate the pieces and replace the cap on the scoop. Use the other half for a smaller scoop.
Step 4: Use Your New Go Green Scoop
With the cap in place simply put it to work for whatever you need to do!
I also used my scoop to fill my Go Green Upside Down Hanging Planter in my second article.
Step 5: Gets the Job Done
Its fast and easy to make and does a great job!
