Don’t throw it out - recycle or reuse it!

Cool tips for turning trash into art

This is something even the youngest in the family can do. Paper, plastic, cardboard, aluminum and glass are all recyclable items. Create boxes or bins for each of these items and encourage everyone in the family to use them. When the boxes fill up, take them to the nearest recycling center.

Turn items that aren’t recyclable into crafts or toys. Grow some herbs like basil or mint in that styrofoam egg carton. Use foam packing peanuts for a craft project. Or turn a couple of empty coffee cans into a drum set!
