Few days ago Design You Trust wrote about an amazing 13 meters tall Christmas tree in Kaunas, Lithuania “made of 40 thousands ‘SPRITE’ plastic bottles.” However, this time you shouldn’t trust them! According to the original sources like Lrytas or Delfi, there are “only” 32,000 recycled plastic bottles, but the tree will have 40,000 Christmas lights.
Anyway, the Christmas tree is not any less wonderful, and it’s especially beautiful at night when it’s lit from the inside and the green color of the bottles sparkles.
“Green color represents peace, nature and ecology. Ecology is expensive, and only conscious Europeans understand that ecology costs money. We are lucky, because we didn’t have to spend the budget money,” says the author of idea, Jolanta Smidtienė.
