While some would be easier to duplicate on your own as a DIY projects, others merely require an exacto knife &  a glue gun or a stapler.  And some ingenuity and patience for minor problem solving.

 

This is what I like to see more of in the homes around us:

 

 

1. Designer: Sarah Turner

Design: Lily Lamp

Materials: drink bottles

Versions: 4, base optional

ecolamp_sarahturner_lily2  

A perfect design. Lily 9 & the larger version Lily 12 are named as they reuse 9 & 12 two liter drinks bottles. The Sprite bottle’s color make the inside sections green with the outside white, but when switched on these colors seem to reverse and make the lamp truly stunning!

Comes in four versions: white or green, small and large.

Cost: about US$140 – 175, including the base.

  2. What a great idea. I love the idea of creating such a stir that people will think twice before throwing the plastic away.

    Hai Becky,

    I know. These days I’m quite obsessed with the notion that taking garbage out of the house does not mean that it vanishes. It just sits somewhere else on the planet. How discussing.

    I have a constant ‘battle’ with those around me to change perceptions of ‘green being great’ from ‘green being just one more chore to do’.

    Thanks for stopping by the blog, and if you happen to have a green tutorial for any diy/craft project, Becky, be sure to link it up with our weekly linky party.
