Call for to collect and decorate plastic bottle bottoms for Bury in Bloom project




Recycled plastic bottle bases could be transformed into glistening floral jewels in a Bury in Bloom art installation – if enough people get involved.

Michelle Freeman, of The Crafty Foxes, is spearheading the initiative and calling for people to save and donate their used plastic bottles or go one step further and decorate them.

Michelle is planning a crown-themed installation in the Abbey Gardens this summer to mark 1,000 years since the founding of the Abbey. It will be entered in the Anglia in Bloom best recycled display category – with judging via photograph instead of in-person.

“This year it’s just about entering and showing this hasn’t got us down. Let’s keep our spirits up,” said Michelle.

To create the display she needs hundreds of plastic bottle bases and says decorating these could be an ideal activity during the lockdown.

“It doesn’t matter how they are decorated, as long as they are bright and cheerful,” she added.

Michelle will collect bottle bases left on doorsteps during her weekly essentials trip. Email thecraftyfoxes@hotmail.co.uk
