Most of us just toss our old plastic bottles (hopefully into the recycling) and probably don’t think about them again. Czech artist Veronika Richterová decided to do something with them and now creates sculptures from the repurposed PET plastic bottles. Since 2004, she’s devoted herself to creating with the malleable PET bottles into what she calls PET-ART. Take a small look at what she can do… from plants and cacti to jellyfish and beyond.
