Project: Captain Recycle
Commissioned for the Lottery West Australia Day Sky show 2010 by Mindarie Regional Council.
Puppet Designer/ Builders:
Matt McVeigh and Calvin Chee
This puppet has been used extensively at community events to promote the idea of recycling and not littering. Standing at over 2.5 metres high, Captain Recycle makes sure he gets his message across. The puppet was made from materials often left on the foreshores and parks as litter after large community events. The materials used consist of plastic bags, aluminium cans and chip packets etc.
