“Reduce, reuse, recycle” – this phrase captures a great philosophy about how to use precious resources. First reduce what you use; then reuse what you can; and finally recycle.
We’ve shared with you our commitments toreducing and recycling, and now here’s one of the most creative ways to “reuse” I’ve ever seen. Check this out – it’s a chandelier made out of FIJI Water bottles!
This was part of the decor at CS Magazine’s spring fashion show “Seeds of Spring” in Chicago last Thursday. The event planning adhered to high sustainability standards, featuring designers known for clothing made of sustainable materials, environmentally responsible food and beverage sponsors, and decor decisions that carefully considered environmental impacts.
The FIJI Water chandelier was constructed by Event Creative of Chicago using bottles our U.S. Midwest event coordinator David had collected from other events sponsored by FIJI Water.
And – because we can’t all have fabulous FIJI Water chandeliers and do need to recycle – David also arranged for recycling bins at the event and included a “blue recycling bag” in each of the 300 CS gift bags. (“Blue recycling bags” like the one pictured here are generally required to collect recyclables in Chicago.)
