Yogurt Light

Hot on the heals of the blender lamp below comes a light shade made of recycled yogurt pots.

Featured on the Craftster website, this simple but effective designs has a retro feel about it and keeps a heap of those tiny pots out of the rubbish.

After washing them well (you don’t want your lamp to smell of cheese), attach them together using small metal rings. A low energy light bulb keeps the construction safe as there is little heat generated and no chance of the design bursting into flame.

If you live in a household with children who have been encouraged to eat yogurt from these tiny, multi-coloured pots, this might be just the thing to show them how they can begin to recycle.
