Here's a recycling project just for the holidays: A 4-meter tall Christmas tree made of 1,100 empty bottles of champagne and sparkling water.
The non-drinker said Saturday a metal structure with special hooks and construction foam holds the bottles in place. It's an eye-catcher that makes motorists in the town of Lazdijai near the Polish border snap pictures.
Valukonis says he intends to build something even more impressive next year.
