After drinking your favorite wine, do not throw the bottles away to avoid them from hurting others when broken, adding up to mountains of landfills and hurting the environment. The best thing that you will do is to recycle them and create some interesting masterpiece out of your favorite wine’s bottles. Designers Emma Woffenden and Tord Bootje have created the TranSglass Recycled Vases and glassware. Their creations look awesome and inspiringly green. The vases and vessels have elegant design that do not even need a flower to make it look beautiful, which is certainly the reason why they are in a permanent collection of MoMA New York.
