CAPitalizing on RE-USE


In this studio project, Liz Brown and I partnered up to create a marketable way to re-use plastic bottle caps, a very common item around trash dumps. Having both come up with the idea of creating a checkerboard, we ran with it, finally creating a TRAVEL CHECKERS SET.
In order to be as ECO-FRIENDLY as possible, we chose to use an old t-shirt as the sack and board. With the squares screen printed on by a soy based ink, and a natural twine thread around the edges, all your missing is 24 bottle caps!

cool project and a good idea. I have a box of caps started and was thinking of a wall piece mosaic.
