Soda Bottle Bird Feeder: Recycling For the Birds

A Soda Bottle Bird Feeder is a great way to be green and take care of your favorite bird friends at the same time | LaBelle's General Store

Re-Purpose Soda Bottles

Recycling {is} for the birds.

Sometimes I wonder if all the water I use in order to recycle bottles, cans, and jars is worth it.  To compound the water-consumption issue, it’s time consuming, and adds to the pile of things I don’t have time to ‘clean’.  That’s why I love re-purposing.  I can skip a trip to the recycling center and have fun finding new uses for everyday ‘spent’ objects.  Our Soda Bottle Bird Feeder makes my recycling dreams come true.

Soda Addict Needs Treatment

Truth be told, I live with a soda addict.  There are worse things to be addicted to, so I don’t complain [too much], but it means we swim in a sea of empty soda bottles. This American made Soda Bottle Bird Feeder is a great way to recycle some of these empty soda bottles. Just fill the bottle with your favorite bird seed, screw on the specially designed cap, attach the looped bottle hanger, and skip merrily outside to the joy of your local bird population. The best part about the Soda Bottle Bird Feeder is when it gets grungy, you can easily swap it out with a nice, clean soda bottle. The birds will appreciate it.

Get Fancy with Glass

Fancy Glass Bottle Bird Feeder

Maybe you don’t imbibe bourgeois soda.  Maybe you prefer a nice PerrierLimoncello, or 5Buck Chuck. Well, you can still make a bottle bird feeder with a glass bottle.

I haven’t tried it myself, but I do believe our Soda Bottle Bird Feeder will also work on glass bottles. If you do decide to try it on a glass bottle, you’ll have to create your own hanger.  I found this beautiful example of a DIY Wine Bottle Bird Feeder on Pinterest.  The designer purchased some simple metal wire from the hardware store to fashion his bird feeder bottle hanger.  It didn’t require any drilling of holes into the glass [which sounds hard], just wrapping the wire artfully around the bottle. Hey, if it doesn’t work, just ask one of your neighbors for a soda bottle from their recycling bin, I’m sure they won’t have a problem giving you one…or ten.

If you try it, let us know and share a picture, we’d love to see how you made your own re-purposed Bottle Bird Feeder.
