Dazzling Christmas tree made from 80,000 recycled plastic spoons
We have already seen plastic forks shaping into stunning carpet, this time around its plastic spoons doing the magic transformation trick. A team of students from Transworld University have breathed new life into plastic spoons by converting them into a beautiful Christmas tree. The six Taiwanese students used as many as 80,000 spoons to create their 12-meter high tree. Developed for a contest organised by the Taichung local government, the plastic spoon Christmas tree had to battle it out with 227 Christmas trees made from recycled objects such as clothing, cans, bottles, drinking straws, computer discs and bamboo chopsticks. The ingenious use of used spoons to celebrate Christmas in an eco-friendly way helped the students bag the award for best Christmas tree created from recycled materials.
