A small team from Paper Moose and I were nominated as finalists for the prestigious B&T 30 under 30 awards for our giant 10 cent coin sculpture erected at Circular Quay last year.
At 3.8 metres tall, and constructed from more than a thousand recycled bottles and 300kg of laser cut steel, the coin sculpture was built to help promote a new 'cash for containers' scheme that would see 10c from every bottle being returned to the user when recycled. Such a scheme would reduce bottle litter significantly in NSW.
We were hugely honoured to be included in the prestigious award list. You can read more about the coin project here.
