Going green is the order of the day. It not only portrays a smart lifestyle but also contributes to the welfare of the planet. Following the green path is not only trendy but it also puts non biodegradable materials to a better use. Lots of recyclable items are littered and dumped in the debris. This trash can be renovated to beautiful accessories. Creativity knows no bounds. Everything considered as trash can be refurbished. Creative minds have styled the lamps in a similar way. Lamps, one of the most important decorative items, provide an aesthetic look to any space. Few of such green lamps styled by artists across the globe are listed below:
