UK-based Green Spirit Creations is the latest team to try its hand at paper-based lighting solutions. Seeking out discarded materials from local shop-owners, they create lamps from 100 percent recycled materials (bulbs, cables and switches excluded). The team is currently raising funds on Kickstarter to up-scale production of its hand-crafted products. The Cover Lamp is available at a pledge level of £29 (US$47), and a £79 ($130) pledge will put you in line for a Golden Cube. The team plans to begin shipping in May, 2014 if everything goes to plan.

    It is possible to put cardboard in the recycling bin instead, of which recycling companies would take care and recycle it. But the idea to collect cardboard straight from shops is also a good one, which is convenient for shops as it lowers the costs of waste disposal. This is a win-win situation for both sides.

    I think the prices could be lower, but a point that you are supporting an exclusive idea than just buying a product it might sound fair.
