Instead of throwing the empty plastic drink bottles, designer Shelley Spicuzza managed to recycle it to create an attractive and creative lamp. You can choose to get together bottles of the same colors to make it more elegant in appearance especially if the ones you are using are the clear ones. However, the colored one can also give you the right amount of color that you need without using the colored lamps. Shelleyʼs design is easy because the central part of the lamp is a sphere that has holes wherein you can screw in the plastic to the threaded holes to create a lamp that everybody will surely love.
Beautiful soft glow comes from this Leaft lamps can surely add beautiful atmosphere at your house.

Stylish Lamps without harming the surroundings sounds too good to be true, as stylish designs normally contribute some amount to carbon emission. However, the Spring Lamp is a stylish lamp that at the same time is not harmful to the environment. From the inspirations to the materials used, the Spring Lamp is a certified eco-friendly product.
The Sprig lamp design is inspired by the fresh growth of plants. A single Sprig lamp makes a pendant light, while multiple Sprig lamps combined build a floor lamp or a chandelier. Sprig is made of recycled plastic, and the lighting source is a standard compact fluorescent lamp (CFL). The CFL is replaced by unscrewing a lamp arm end cap to access the bulb. For joining two Sprig lamps together, an accessory package provides one threaded sleeve and a clip-on electrical cord, plug, and screw-in outlet.
When it comes to living a green or eco-friendly lifestyle, various ways are popping nowadays. Recycling things comes as the easiest way and various designers are now into designing elegant, functional, and eye-catching items out of recycled materials. French artist from +Brauer has just designed the eco-friendly lamp-robot called Zebulon made from recycled plastic packaging.
“In our modern world, where objects often have a single life, I aim at inventing a new existence for them by diverting them from their initial function.
I particularly like the robust appearance of used steel and industrial materials. When I put them together, they start a new life as unique pieces of art, in which each component can tell its own story.”
Recycling is now not new to everybody; you can see many people is looking for ways on how they can help save the earth in the form of recycling things. Just like this creative lamp designed by Peter Castellucci. The lamp is made of recycled plastic drinking cups. I find the result attractive and fashionable. However, the thing that baffles me is the heat the light produced may burn out the plastic cups. It sounds dangerous for me, but if the designer has also included in his design some sort of protection for the cups from burning out, then this one is awesome.
