The huge Christmas tree in Shanghai, China, has a green look but that’s only because it has been built out of Heineken beer bottles that have lent their hue to the tree so well. The huge tree has been created out of a thousand beer bottles, and we guess it would love to be a part of the celebration, as the bottles are all full of beer.
Though we would have probably loved the tree more if it had been built out of empty bottles repurposed to create the tree, and backed by a good plan of reusing them, this one isn’t that bad either. It is more than likely that the bottles will return to store shelves after completing their Christmas show, or just move directly to people wanting to have some beer.
So, there is no (additional) harm done, though we can’t help thinking that a lot more good would have been done had they decided to reuse and recycle some old bottles. Empty green bottles are as good as filled ones, as far as creating the tree is concerned.
