No matter where we go you will find that we have left trash there. Its a sad and ugly part of what we are as humans. Still, these leftover items could one day save your life or make your survival a bit more comfortable. I thought I knew a lot of things that were possible when it came to the plastic bottle. This article offers 19 uses for plastic bottles. Even I was surprised at some of these items.
I see things like zero electricity refrigeration and get pretty excited about plastic bottles. They are pretty impressive uses. So much of survival is about just being able to make the most of the resources around you. The average survivor may walk over a plastic bottle and think nothing of it. Do you have a use that is not listed. Leave it in the comments below.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
