FLOYDADA – Many times when we try to recycle we rarely see the fruit of our labor or a tangible outcome. For students at A.B. Duncan however, they’ll see firsthand what can be done with 250 pounds of recycled plastic bottle caps.
The “Buddy Bench” is a project of the First Baptist Church’s Children’s Ministry, and is the culmination of months of gathering and sorting plastic bottle caps to be delivered to a facility in Evansville, IN to make the transformation from trash to treasure.
According to Ludustia Prisk, Director of Children’s Ministry at FBC – Floydada, almost all of the caps collected were usable and since approximately 250 caps equal one pound, this donation is the result of more than 62,000 plastic caps.
Officially, the Buddy Bench will be presented to the Elementary school Thursday afternoon at 2:30 pm.
