We recently came across this artist’s innovative use of bottle caps to create a portrait of First Lady Michelle Obama, and thought we’d share it with our readers. Displayed at the Elder Art Gallery in Charlotte, NC, the portrait is constructed with 3,000 soda bottle caps!

You can learn how to create your own bottle cap mosaic by checking out this how-to-site.

We at Sip & Savor encourage creative recycling and re-use of our packaging. We most recently wrote about a company based in San Francisco, CA, that makes bags, belts and other fashionable accessories out of soda can tabs.

So, however you channel your inner artist, remember to “Think Inside the Bin” and find new ways to reduce, reuse and recycle.
