Glowing Bottle / Streetlight

Glowing Bottle
Glowing Bottle

This product is inspired by a light bulb, which consists mainly of a filament and a glass case. Glass bottles are fragile and difficult to recycle. Usually, glass bottles are recycled together with plastic and metal. There is no clear classification, which increases the difficulty of later processing. The combination of light bulbs, glass bottles and storage boxes can not only efficiently recover glass, but also achieve energy recycling.This product has solar panels, which can store solar energy during the day and convert it into electric energy that the light bulb glows at night to realize the recycling of energy.
