Greenpeace pops off bottle caps

Elementary students create designs with upcycled items

Upper elementary schoolers gathered in Ms. Lopez’s room (Room 201) to participate in the Bottle Cap Night event hosted by Greenpeace on March 14. The club managed to gather youngsters and turn small pieces of reusable plastic into art. They aimed to encourage children to up-cycle.

Nayoung Kim, president of Greenpeace, said, “Bottle Cap Night was an event to promote and educate kids about upcycling, which is reusing materials instead of throwing them away. We made art through the bottlecaps using reused cardboard.” Utilizing bottle caps and cardboard, elementary students not only promoted awareness of the environment but also flaunted their artistic creativity.

Later that night, participants enjoyed pizza and chicken provided by the host. Fifth grader Abhiram Veluvolu said, “Bottle Cap Night was very fun for me because I loved making the bottle caps and the chicken party.”

Members and participants fostered their appreciation for recycling and demonstrated teamwork. Children brought home cherished memories, eco-friendly art, and new insight into a green future for planet Earth.
