An elementary school in Taiwan has turned plastic bottle caps into pieces of art to draw awareness to environmental issues.

Each fresco panel is about one meter, and uses around 3,000 caps. The school has been collecting the caps since October and has made 15 frescoes.

Taiwan has some of the most stringent waste management and recycling laws worldwide.
