Message in a Bottle

Upcycling to get more use from your trash

There’s a message in this bottle. Actually, more than one.

First, there’s a message of Season’s Greetings. And second, a message that things don’t have to be discarded when they’ve fulfilled their original function. Our team lead Marcia transformed an empty wine bottle, some Christmas lights, and some vinyl into a lovely FULL holiday light. (She drilled a hole in the base of the bottle for the cord with a diamond head drill bit.)

Remember this bottle when you look around you at things that seem like they’re ready for the recycling bin or the trash. That old stuff might have a message for you.

Have you reused, repurposed, or upcycled something? Let us know!
