Crystal, don't buy make it !


Alternative Crystal Lamp
Background

This light is born from a pile of old aqua bottles, which were scattered all around us, plastic bottles will be difficult to decompose in the soil,need hundreds of years to decompose in the soil, and if sold to a plastics processing plant is very cheap.Unfortunately  so many of us are willing to spend a lot of money just for a crystal. Sensatiocraft named this project, is an Alternative Crystal Lamp, the Crystal lamp that made from used plastic bottles.
Material
First we create stand lamp from the steel, with a height of 120cm, width and length of body 30x30cm. Framework which we have welded steel, we use plastic wrap waste as well, then the coating to avoid from rusting.Then we prepare used bottle of aqua, required approximately 240 bottles, a small cut is small, then each one hollowed, after it is heated to get  curve effect. Onwards coupled with a plastic rope, a few series that hung on the lamp frame. The series of hanging plastic consists of two layers, to get the good effects of light, like crystal.
Human Resources
Here many people are involved, especially, trash collector as a supplier of bottled mineral water used, without involving this project they are assigned got more money than just the sell to the plastic factory.Although in this work does not require high technology, but  need of perseverance and patience, just a great willingness to complete the project.
Benefit.
When the project is to find its market, or  buyers, will very much help to those involved, a lot of trash collectors who will benefit, many unemployed who would be able to work, and of course we help reduce the  earth from plastic pollution.
