Cans Caps Jewel

An environmental project in Costa Rica involving making eco-jewelry from recycled materials, for these examples, the aluminum beverage can pull-tabs and frayed strips of recovered cloth remnants. These are made by women responsible for their community recycling programs in remote villages, as a means to demonstrate that "no es basura": just what can be done with throw-aways, a step in promoting a culture of recycling in this developing country.

Hey, nice surprise finding us here! We like your name too ;-] Even our logos are alike.

Your site is fabulous. Will it remain a showcase, or will you eventually sell from it?

I’ll keep checking in and send other recup artists.

Many thanks.

Alexis
