Campaign for recycling plastic bottle caps

To help save sea birds, B.E.A.C.H. supported a new campaign to recycle plastic bottle caps. Any rigid, twist on bottle cap made of number 5 plastic can be dropped off at the Aveda Lifestyle Salon and Spa at Ala Moana Center or at the University Laboratory School in Manoa. Schools also helped collect bottle caps for recycling. Click here for more information. The caps will be recycled into new caps and packaging for Aveda products.
