The Groupon Guide to: Empty 2-Liter Soda Bottles

Everyone loves drinking soda pop straight out of 2-liter bottles, but when the soda pop is all gone, you've got to recycle that empty plastic container, a process that can be awful and horrible. Make the end as fun as the beginning with these tips for hanging on to those empties and using them for fun:

• Play sports with them. An empty 2-liter bottle is the perfect object to use as a whiffle-ball bat or a weird basketball that's incredibly frustrating to use.

• Turn them into pieces of art. You can do this by filling them with just about anything because most art isn't very good.

• Bring them to a sporting event and use the bottles as thunder sticks, which are those hollow, cylindrical plastic objects that fans bang together to signal to each other when they should all be quiet for a key play.

• Throw them up in the air and see if they float!

• Recycle them the easy, painless way: by just throwing them away in the garbage.
