Discarded bottles, both plastic and glass, have been known to choke up landfills and oceans, a truly unfortunate circumstance as they lend themselves so well to dazzling recycled bottle lamp designs.
By transforming an item that is considered disposable into a lighting fixture, designers and artists are breathing new life into these vessels and are working to combat the harmful effects of pollution. The shape and styles of bottles are beautiful even when left unchanged, working as gorgeous lampshades with their shapely curves and tinted exteriors.
Environmentally friendly, homeowners will be thrilled to know that recycled bottle lighting can be found in many riveting designs and can also be made as a fun DIY project.
