About: I love creating objects out of recycled material

This tree is made out of recycled material. I love to give a second live to plastic bottles.

I'm working on a project related with a garden made out of recycled plastic bottles.

This plant is a prototype of one of the trees of my "recycled" garden.

For the leaves I've used plastic bottles.

For the trunk and brances,I've used a dry tree
