It's Green Month on AT, so we're on the lookout for ways to reduce our garbage and reuse materials that we already own. The current issue of Dwell features the inspiring work of Stuart Haygarth, who uses man-made objects like discarded bottles, glasses and objects found on the beach to make beautiful light fixtures. Though AT has shown his Recycled Bottle Chandelier and Tail Light Chandelier, we haven't yet shown Stuart Haygarth's Spectacle Chandelier, made from 1,020 pairs of prescription glasses (photo above), or his other amazing work shown below the jump...

The top photo shows the Tide Chandelier, made from debris that Stuart Haygarth has collected over many years from the Kent coastline. Below is a closeup of the chandelier.

Below are the Millenium Chandeliers, each composed of 1,000 exploded Party Poppers collected after the Millennium celebrations in London. See Stuart Haygarth's website for more light fixtures and information on his work.
