Bottle cap carpet was made by 700 citizens of Sarajevo
BOSNIA: A traditional Bosnian rug made up of 25 thousand plastic bottle caps was on display in Sarajevo for World Recycling Day.
Unlike any average rug, Bosnian artists came up with the spectacular idea to recycle plastic bottle caps to make the traditional Bosnian rug.

The carpet was made using a total of 25,000 plastic bottle caps.
The bottle cap rug is made to encourage recycling amongst people in Bosnia.
