Eclectic Recycled-Bottle Coat Racks
Wine for your walls.user rating
Looking for an eclectic gift to give a food-loving friend? Here’s one that won’t add extra calories. Handmade in Wisconsin with no two alike, the Recycled-Bottle Coat Rack from UncommonGoods ($75; uncommongoods.com) hangs outerwear in style. The innovative rack features wine-bottle parts rescued on their way to the landfill. Four bottle necks of varying colors are affixed to glass for an eye-catching wall piece that can house jackets or other light attire. You can also personalize your reclaimed wine bottle coat rack with your own decorative corks. UncommonGoods offers other distinct handmade food-related gifts like sterling silver coffee-bean earrings (cast from real beans) and eco-friendly recycled Velcro bracelets with photos of tomatoes or pumpkins.
Shoppers can spot the green recycled icon throughout UncommonGoods’ website for products made of recycled materials. The company’s Better to Give Program donates a portion of each order to your choice of nonprofit organizations: American Forests, which plants a tree with every dollar received; the Craft Emergency Relief Fund, which aids artisans in need; or AmeriCares, which provides medical supplies and aid to areas hit by disaster around the world.—Nicole Potenza Denis
