Green Art: Bottles Recycled Into Beautiful Form and Function

Quirky / Funky

Digging around the internet occasionally results in finding treasures like these below.  I stumbled across several art pieces made from recycled bottles that were intriguing both in form and function. I believe pushing the “ecological envelope” in the world of art and building is always inspiring and should be encouraged as a respectable medium, as well as an efficient way to use materials that would have previously ended up as trash. Bottoms up!
