Pepsi Dream Machine Kiosks gives points for recycled bottles

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on April 23rd, 2010

Pepsi and Waste Management are teaming up for the Dream Machine, a computerized recycling bin that gives out points for returned bottles. The internet-connected kiosks will be installed in stadiums, parks, and gas stations and will award recyclers redeemable points for every bottle returned.

That’s pretty cool. It’s not clear what the recycling points will be redeemable for, but it will encourage recycling in a big way and that’s always a good thing.

Rethink Hanger uses plastic bottles to hang clothes

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on January 21st, 2010

In the quest to eliminate waste, or at least stop some waste from hitting landfills, humans have created some interesting designs in the last 2 years. This is the latest. The Rethink, a hanger that’s not a hanger until you ttach two plastic bottles.

It’s from designer Xuan Yu and it’s just a hook with two holes that hold empty bottles. Just pick from all the empty bottles you’ve been hoarding and screw them into the holes. Now you have yourself a hanger. One that isn’t as flat as a normal hanger and won’t let you hang as many garments in your closet, but at least you are being green right?

Christmas tree made from 1000 Heineken bottles

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on December 23rd, 2009

It’s really more of a pyramid and less of a tree, but I guess that’s what you can expect from all that drinking. Frankly I’m surprised there isn’t a guy passed out in the center. Or maybe there is. Maybe a few guys.

It actually comes from Shanghai, where someone went through the trouble of clearing these bottles from their backyard to make this Christmas tree. It’s outside the Nanjing mall and if you listen very closely you can hear the guys underneath scream for help between belches. The tree took hours to make and 1000 beer bottles.
