PS 185 to Unveil Bottle Cap Mosiacs on Earth Day
They started by researching the question "Where does our trash go?" They learned that a lot of street litter ends up in the ocean, where it kills wildlife and damages the ecosystem.
To educate others about the problem of ocean trash, the Go Green Team, after brainstorming project ideas, chose to collect and recycle plastic bottle caps and lids and create bottle cap mosaics in the school's main stairwells.
As many as 15,000 bottle caps and lids will be needed to complete the project, to be designed and constructed by the entire student body, with help from parents and the Go Green Team.
The completed murals will unveiled at PS 185's Earth Day celebration on June 12.
The team hopes the project will help PS 185 students and their families, as well as local businesses and elected representatives, understand how much plastic we use each day -- and learn to reduce, reuse and recycle.
Families collecting plastic for the project have been surprised how much they use on a daily basis.
