We are collecting bottle tops to recycle them into artificial limbs.

They will be taken to a centre that donates them to a not-for-profit company turning them into prosthetic hands for kids in need

They use 3D printing technology to turn our plastic waste into mechanical hands and arms for kids, with the products being sent around the world.

The patterns are unique and colourful, designed to make kids feel confident and empowered, and bringing joy to recipients like four-year-old James Haines - who just last week received a prosthetic inspired by his favourite superhero, Batman.

Milk bottle tops, soft drink tops and flat water-based tops are the best to utilise and recycle – but it is important that they have the number 2 or 4 on it, as these are the only ones that can be used.

Each bottle top brought in to school with number 2 or number 4 on it earns 2 points for the student. Some students are earning 10’s to 100’s of points, with family members all collecting for them.
