Thanksgiving is not quite here yet, but it is never too early to start decorating for Christmas. In Silver Spring, Maryland, artist Julia Vogl created a Christmas tree installation made entirely of recycled plastic bottles collected from Discovery Communication employees and students of two local middle schools. Comprised of more than 1,650 recycled bottles, the installation can be seen lit in the evening at the Downtown Silver Spring fountain plaza.

We at Sip & Savor applaud any creative re-using of our industry’s packaging, and we encourage you to make recycling a part of your daily routine. So during this holiday season – and every season – remember to “Think Inside the Bin.”
