How with one bottle cap, you can change a life!
OUR NEW COMMUNITY PROJECT: DROP OFF YOUR BOTTLE CAPS HERE. WE HAVE BECOME A COLLECTION POINT!!!
Dragonfly's Early Learning, our Childcare centre near Coolum Beach has a new project which has been orchestrated by the Kindergarten Group and their Educators
Dragonfly's Early Learning's new project is with Envision Hands. Envision is a company that has a plastics recycling project that supplies bespoke aids to children in need throughout the world. Envision Hands turns plastic bottle caps collected in our local community into hands and arms. The goal is 100 hands .... and with your support, we can do it!
Inspired by the Enabling the Future organisation, Envision Hands will be participating in the world wide community making and donating 3D printed, bespoke aids for children in need across under serviced countries. A major difference in this project will be using recycled plastic from bottle caps. Plastic bottle caps are essentially a non recyclable waste product that can be turned into recycled plastic hands.
Simultaneously, this project helps here in Australia, to support the long time unemployed by providing jobs.

Here we see our little Dragonflies taking part in the collection process.
These little guys were born with one hand only.
