Eco-Friendly Wooden Trophy made with Bottle Caps and Recycled Acrylic

Posted on: February 21, 2020

This week we’re taking a closer look at a custom wooden trophy, designed and manufactured with sustainability in mind. We’ll dive into the features that give this award it’s Eco-friendly credentials, including:

  • Recycled materials
  • Sustainable sourcing
  • Branded components

Branding On A Sustainable Award

The Coca Cola brand quite literally sits at the heart of this wooden trophy. The body of the award has been hollowed out and filled with branded bottlecaps, offering a unique bespoke twist on a traditional recycled trophy.

Fundamental to the brand, the bottle caps represent an iconic piece of company history. The caps have free movement inside the award, providing some fun organic variation from piece to piece.

Recycled Materials

The classic pop of red is an integral part of this design, and it was vital we incorporate it into the design alongside the bottle caps. Our team utilised recycled acrylic for a feature backing in a bold, brand-appropriate red.

Cut to shape, the red acrylic backing fits flush with the profile of this trophy. On the front of the award, recycled clear acrylic provides a window into the hollowed-out centre, displaying the encapsulated bottle caps.

Recycled acrylic is manufactured using material off-cuts. Choosing recycled acrylic minimises waste, making use of material that would otherwise be disposed of.  The surface is as smooth as primary acrylic and has a glossy, seamless finish that still offers the flexibility of bespoke customisation without compromising on style or structure.

Sustainable Sourcing

Moving towards an Eco-friendly award doesn’t always mean a complete redesign, and sustainable trophies aren’t limited to standard components and off-brand colours or textures. Our in-house design service offers the same flexibility in bespoke design, even with a commitment to the environment. The wooden body of this trophy is instantly recognisable, milled to the unique Coca-Cola bottle shape.
