Help make a Bottlecap Mural or other art project a reality for the Dunwoody Nature Center

Dunwoody Nature Center is developing a "green" art installation in the park that utilizes recycled plastic bottlecaps. We need THOUSANDS to create art based on artist Michelle Stitzlein's Bottlecap Little Bottlecap project. (You can order a copy for your school or program here.)

Bottlecaps or not generally recycled. While plastic bottles are marked #1-#7 for recycling, most recycling companies do not reuse plastic caps because their chemical compositions vary too much. So we love the idea of using these "toss aways" in colorful art for our park. We'll create oversize flora and larger-than-life fauna out of the bottlecaps.

We need all sizes, all colors, from drink bottles and laundry detergent jugs to margarine tubs and spray paint can lids. Wash them, dry them, bag them, and bring them by Dunwoody Nature Center. A collection bin is in the front hall. Thanks!
