I believe there is a viable product in our wasted Arizona ginseng bottles. These seeming indestructible pieces of recyclable litter should be able to be turned into something useful instead of just glass chum used in making more highway pavement. I believe that those wonderful little gems could be mounted to the little feet of the underprivileged by means of double sided tape, or elmers wood glue. I would prefer to use the Arizona bottles with the hand/finger indents for better traction. Some may say my acumen is great, but I just say that’s what I mean when I talk about a sticky situation

       Why not? Several friends of mine resole their boots with soles made from used tires, and the replacement soles are tougher that the originals.   

       The ginseng-bottle shoes would probably mark up a tile or marble floor pretty badly, though

       Sandals made from worn out tires and rope are fairly common in some Central American countries and in Mexico. So even though they're not made of Arizona ginseng bottles, they're still made from something that's clogging up our landfills and is fairly difficult to recycle as well: junk tires.

       they would probably float, wouldnt they, thereby giving them the opportunity to cross vast bodies of water and make it to other parts of the world. maybe good to market it as a travel and liesure product.
