With so much plastic waste being created everyday in various locations around the world, this fake Christmas tree helps to raise awareness to limit consumption and always recycle. Created by a group of citizens in Elbasan, Albania the public tree is crafted using 2,200 plastic bottles that have been colored red and green to transform them into artificial tree branches.

The tree helps to eliminate the need for the community to cut down a real tree to place in the city center and raises awareness about how recycling is a necessary way to live one's lifestyle. The fake Christmas tree is outfitted with an illuminating light system that brings the tree to life at night and helps to showcase community commitment to the environment.
