Plastic bottles are made from polyethylene terephthalate, it is also known as PET. They are mostly used for holding liquids. The designed of the plastic water bottle is made so it is easier to drink out of. The neck is usually narrow so you can take an easy sip. But there are many shapes and sizes of plastic bottles. For ex. a honey container you buy at the store is usually shaped like a bear.
