When we think about recycling, most usually think that it is an act of sacrifice. We imagine that just because we are doing some conscious effort for the environment it is some sort of a charity and we cannot expect anything from it. However, this type of thinking is completely wrong. Recycling not only helps save the environment, moreover, it also helps you save money without sacrificing on the aesthetics and utility. The only two things that make people avoid recycling are their preconceived notions about it and their laziness. We bet that after reading this article you would reason enough to overcome both. Take a look at this chandelier made of used beer bottles and other recycled chandeliers. If you want to design a new chandelier at home, there’s plenty and enough for inspiration.

The design company has some very interesting projects to its credit. All of them highlight an underlying motif of sustainability coupled with beautiful designs.
