As we open our favorite drinks, bottle caps are immediately destined to be on the trashcan and eventually thrown to the mountains of landfills that we currently have. In order to help in minimizing the continuous growth of our landfills, artist Alan Harris of Bottle Cap Artwork, have come into a solution by recycling these discarded bottle caps and uses it in creating a stylish signage. According to Alan, all of the bottle caps that we see on his signage are all collected and are used caps. An eye-catching signage for Jack’s Backyard was Alan’s first project in late 2008. Currently his studio has more than 10,000 bottle caps available for recycling.
