Description: 

Upcycling (empty) wine bottles

Upcycling is a straightforward way to reuse items which would otherwise be considered waste. Spanish company Lucirmás has found a way to upcycle bottles.

Using traditional methods of manufacture, Lucirmás transforms glass bottles into durable and functional objects, hand-made, designed and manufactured in the company’s workshop.

Lucirmás uses waste glass, mainly wine bottles, employing minimal resources and production processes to create objects such as lamps, cups and trays.

Lucirmás also cooperates with Nutcreatives, a creative agency from Barcelona that designs products and services with the best environmental and social impact.

Main results: 

Glass bottles are usually not reused, so new ways to upcycle them can extend their useful lifetime.
