Did you know that Americans throw away 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour?! That’s a lot of waste!
This week Mr. Eagler’s class tackled the plastic bottle overload problem by converting water bottles headed for the trash into lovely flowers vases. It’s called upcyling. Upcycling is the process of converting waste into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value.
The students had fun picking and arranging their bouquets in uniquely decorated plastic water bottle flower vases.
Can you find a secondary use for products headed for the trash? Here’s some cool ideas: http://www.upcyclethat.com/
