There isn’t much tribalism going on in KEAG’s recycled bottle masks, but they certainly incorporate a lot of eco-ingenuity. The horns on each animal are made up of numerous un-recyclable bottle caps, while their snouts come from the handles of plastic jugs and bike seats. There are also finer details such as lashes, manes and goatees, but nothing complex enough to preclude this from being a DIY project — though the fact that all profits from the sales of these recycled masks are split amongst the KEAG team, which consists of 16 previously unemployed people, makes the buy vs. DIY decision a win-win situation.

    These are so cute! Do you know what the fabric is that covers some of them?

    Hi sheri, I might be wrong, but I believe the fabric to be from vegetable sacks very similar to the kind you would find onions in at your supermarket.
