Елка из пластиковых бутылокRight before the holiday season state authorities of Dubai, United Arab Emirates, decided to remind the citizens about the ongoing combat with garbage problems in quite an elegant way. Movenpick hotel installed two designer Christmas trees made of plastic trash and disposed energy-saving light bulbs.

It took about 845 plastic bottles to create one tree, and 1850 light bulbs for another one. The creation process lasted for 600 hours. Authors of the project hope to raise awareness on garbage recycling issues in the world, since UAE are visited by thousands of tourists during holiday season.
