Bottle Caps Art Project at LPC
Students at BWYA’s Lower Primary School have been working hard on another special art project as part of BWYA’s ‘A Green Future’ initiative.
‘A Green Future’ is a campaign that aims to demonstrate the contribution our entire community can make to help make our school a little greener, protect the environment and ensure the sustainable future of our planet.
Guest artist, Paola Ibarra, came up with the design of a special installation made from 8,752 recycled plastic bottle tops collected during one month by the Lower Primary School Community. Ms. Ibarra said, “The coloured tape in the design shows how much space 8,752 plastic bottles would take up. Plastic can take up to hundreds of years to decompose and recycling can be an expensive and complicated process. The best thing we can all do, which this installation represents, is thinking about how much plastic we are using and how we can reduce this. We managed to collect this much plastic in just one month so think about how much this would be in a year!”?
Don’t forget the BWYA Littlestar A Green Future Awards Ceremony, featuring special performances and activities celebrating all things environmental, will be taking place at our Upper Primary Campus, Laiguangying, on this Saturday, 25th November.
我校邀请的客座艺术家Paola Ibarra是这个项目的负责人，她说道，“艺术项目中的彩色胶带区域代表8752个塑料瓶所占据的空间。塑料需要上百年才能分解，而回收过程昂贵且复杂。这个艺术项目希望传达的是，意识到平时生活中我们会产生多少塑料垃圾，而我们要减少塑料的使用并想办法变废为宝。我们仅在1个月内就收集了8000多个塑料瓶盖，想想1年又会是多大的数目！ ”
