Last week, Casco Viejo`s neighborhood association (AVACA) built a Christmas Tree out of recycled bottles. It was built with the help of local kids and Aprojusan (an ngo that works with them providing afterschool programs such as art workshops) as part of AVACA`s goal to create awareness in Casco Viejo about recycling. The association already has a group of restored buildings participating of a recycling program and hopes to join more.

This week,  while several offices have displayed different trees to celebrate the holidays, the AVACA Plastic Bottle Christmas Tree has become an attraction. Tourists and locals have stopped to photograph it and smile at its creativity.  However, the star is still missing! or maybe we should consider the big light hanging on top of it as the star?
