recycled glass terrarium: vidrio ecologico at world market

This terrarium is made in Spain from Vidrio Ecologico a nearly 100 year old company. It is 100% recycled glass and the company collateral (tag) explains that every time they recycle one bottle, they save enough energy to light a 100 watt bulb for 4 hours. Used bottles and jars collected from all over Europe are given a new live at their plant. I bought it for $6 at World Market.

Thank you for sharing this because I've been thinking about "ecospheres" lately but wanting to do something that's not enclosed. Terrarium is the word I was looking for! Yours looks lovely, very inspiring.
