The bottle-to-bottle way I go

I'm a little teapot, short and stout – well, actually, I am a PET bottle, not a teapot at all. I was used for iced tea, however. Now that my owner finished with me, how will my life go on? Will they just leave me on the picknick table in the park? Toss me into the bin after a run? Let me float on the duck pond until I inevitably end up on the other side of the shore where I will be swallowed by weeds, never decaying? Or will they take me to the store and recycle me, so that I may end up with you?
