Dude, waaayy cool. :D Gave you a 4.5! You know, if you change the name to something that makes people wonder about it, they will have a higher chance of clicking on it. I recommend changing this one to: "Upcycled Recycling Awareness Symbol" It catches your attention.

Thanks for the compliment and the idea for a different title. Hopefully the new title will draw more people to look at it.
Awesome! :D
