“Being an influential leader, you have to model what you are trying to teach or lead. You have to be it. You’ve got to do it. Don’t talk about it. Don’t write books about it. Do it.” ~ S. Paula Gonzalez  

Thank you for your interest in the Bottle Caps to Benches program! Here you will find additional information regarding this important recycling program. 

Please note: We do not make the benches or tables! We take the caps that we have collected to Green Tree Plastics which is located in Evansville, Indiana. If you are interested in starting your own program please contact them.

Sustainable Seating

EarthConnection’s Caps to Benches program is a real-life example of sustainability as it engages all generations in recycling and giving back to the community. We always strive to be better stewards of our natural resources.  We are collecting caps to turn into benches to display at EarthConnection. Working with the Girl Scouts and college students we want to create a win-win situation for all. Those working with us learn about sustainability seating and we keep caps out of the landfill.

From an article about the program – https://www.srcharitycinti.org/2022/04/19/sustainable-seating/

“It’s a win-win situation,” she says. “We are keeping these items out of the landfill, while also teaching. So many have written saying they love the idea, love the process, and love having an avenue to go through. Many say they appreciate how early we are starting with involving younger kids. By making it so simple, people can embrace it a lot easier.”
