Most of us often see trash as a waste or a pile of unused items and do not think how valuable it can be if we try to make something out of it .
And yes guys,this "Trash to Treasure" contest is the best place to display your creative minds and make people believe,how trash or waste items (especially plastic bottles) can be turned into valuable items instead of just disposing it off and polluting the environment.
I made a small trophy,country flag holder and wine glass from old plastic bottle.It's very easy and i think everyone should give it a try.
