Beauty in bottle tops

Artists Monique Fagan and Sam Twana of Masi Creative Hub, which is run by Yandiswa Mazwana, used more than 3000 bottle tops collected during the Recycle Superheroes campaign run by Longbeach Mall to create a 1.2 metre by 50 cm mosaic. The bottle tops were washed at the Sosabenza Youth Centre and the mosaic took 64 hours to complete with the finishing touches being done at the Longbeach Mall. The Recycle Superheroes campaign called for the community to collect and drop off bottle tops for recycling. Kleinberg Primary School collected the most and won a R5 000 cash prize.
