Do you want your apartment or room to look different from anyone else’s?

I may have the solution.

In the blog, Webecoist, a blogger  nicknamed “Steph” provided information about 15 lights made from recycled products such as legos, egg cartons, blenders and ballpoint pens in a March 8 post.

The coolest light mentioned in the post is the Vespa Light, made from a 2003 Vespa motorcycle by the company Lamponi’s Lamps. The company’s website doesn’t list a price for the lamp, which comes in a variety of colors.

My  favorite product mentioned in the blog is the “Traffic Light” lamp, which comes in three colors: “Intimidating Red”, “Yielding Yellow” and “Go Green”. At $99 to $299, the lamps, sold by the company Greenlight Concepts, would be the perfect addition to a club’s decor.

Another cool product is the Waterbottle chandelier, created by Stuart Haygarth, a lighting designer who has designed many recycled lights like this one.

Why go to  Home Depot  for lighting when you have these trendy and eco-friendly options?
