This photo makes me smile as i recall the joy that the humble sprite bottle brought to those on the mountain in Peru.
Apart from the normal use… drinking the sweet contents, we found recycling of the humble bottle to be smile invoking.
From the decorative Christmas trees around the village ( yes, take a closer look- the tree IS made from sprite bottles) to the squashed up bottles used by the small village children as toboggans.
The squeals of delight as they rode the plastic make-shift vehicles down the rain-soaked streets throughout the day was amazing.
Such simple pleasures from something we throw away normally without a thought.
