Recycling Empty Glass Bottles 1

We think the second biggest problem here in Siargao Island is waste management. Unlike in the city, there's no junk shop here (that we know of) that's interested in buying or taking empty soda cans, glass/plastic bottles, and paper boxes. So this year onward, we will be very dedicated to recycling. And we're proud to say that we have indeed started recycling by turning empty Tanduay rhum bottles into gas lamps.

 Other materials used are the ff: empty soda can cut into strips, string from an old floor mop, paint. 

The painting was the fun part. We had 4 empty bottles so for the theme, we went with "four seasons". Naldo painted winter and fall. I did spring and summer (I chose the easiest of course! Heee!)

They're cute, yes?

We cant afford solar panels yet so for now these lamps will do.

Happy 2015 everyone!
