Creative makers on Etsy are giving new life to used plastic ink cartridges.
Although most printer ink cartridges are recyclable or refillable, many of them just don't make it to the recycle box. Etsy sellers Lowell and Louise, have taken one man's trash and created another man's treasure. These simple, yet beautiful lights are a great example of how everyday objects can be modified for a second life.
Each light comes with a replaceable 6 watt bulb and all wiring and sockets are UL certified. Not only do these little lights look great individually, one savvy DIYer combined the lights to make a chandelier.
What great "re-use" products have you seen or made?
