Mountain Dew Christmas Tree
Now that's what I call recycling.
These guys started with four hundred empty cans of Mountain Dew, a pipe, and a dream. (See also: Garbage Into Gold: Great Ways to Recycle Old Containers)
Actually, after consuming that much sugar, it was probably more of a psychedelic vision of dancing mimes and baby pandas than a "dream."
But hey, why judge?
We appreciate this expression of frugal creativity as much as anyone. Well, almost anyone. According to this Digg user:
"The DewTree is a monument to creative thinking and undertaking of a task, that can be easily equeated to, but not limited to the building of the Eiffel Tower, without the dew. The small city of Chico now has TWO monuments that place it on the map: Sierra Nevada Brewing and the Dew Tree. It is our duty to salute the Dew Tree!"
