If you're ever wondering what to do with all those corks from all those wines you've been sampling here's a suggestion. The only problem is finding this cool container. This one is in St. Emillion, France. The other country I've seen them is in Italy. However, they were using them for a different purpose. These bottles originally contained wine, and the Italians would break the neck off (once the wine was gone), turn it over and use it as a lamp on the posts along a driveway. I thought it was a terribly clever way to recycle. Just imagine the amount of wine you would have to drink if you had a long driveway!
