Upcycled plastic bottles become lamps

Artist-designers and sisters, Reta and Vana Howell create funky, art quality lighting fixtures from upcycled plastic bottles, household plastic containers and recycled scrap metal.

Each fixture contains 30-55 plastic water bottles, depending on size and shape. The plastic materials are hardened via THIS’s secret fusion process to create the appearance of glass. Life Expectancy of each “THIS” fixture - 700 YEARS (excluding electrical parts).

Each lamp includes a cord for hard wiring. THIS Lights come with a 13 watt CFL bulb. The sisters recycle every part of the plastic bottles used in their designs. There are currently 5 versions of the lights for sale, ranging from $325 to $425 and you can get $100 off for sending them 72 recycled plastic bottles.
