Top 10 Debris Item collected during their cleanup event. During their cleanup, volunteers found 81 birds, 63 fish, 49 invertebrates, 30 mammals, 11 reptiles, and 1 amphibian entangled or that had digested plastic bags, fishing line, nets, 6-pack holders, balloons, glass bottles, and cans. That's a lot of trash, and too many harmed animals.
sea glass that you find on the beach or on the ocean floor is actually disposed shards of glass from bottles, jars, windows, etc that has been smoothed, frosted, and textured from being tumbled and tossed in the waters of the ocean. In fact back in the 1800's glassware factories would dump any unused portions of glass into the ocean!
Pirate Treasure Glass Bottle Vase is made from a recycled glass wine bottle, transformed into a stunning brown painted vase with mounds of various types of sea shells such as: Scallops, Florida Spiny Jewelry Boxes, Moon Shells, Lightning Whelks, California Horn Snail Shells, Ribbed Cantharus, Ponderous Ark, and Barnacles.
By recycling this glass bottle, energy has been saved that can run a 100-watt light bulb for 4 hours or a compact fluorescent bulb for 20 hours. This bottle has also helped prevent 20% overall pollution and 50% less water pollution than when a new glass bottle is made from raw materials. When this product is purchased, the buyer will help decrease the time it would take for this bottle to decompose, which is approximately 4,000 years- that's a big impact.
Recently I have been working on creating more vase bottles in different colors, shells, glass bottle shapes, and even moving into durable plastic containers. If you would like a custom vase for your home, leave me a comment :)
