Eco Club and Up-cycled items

May 27, 2018 0 Comments

For the last few weeks The Grove eco club has focused on upcycling. This is when we take a waste item and “upcycle” it into a new useful item, instead of throwing it in the rubbish bin or recycling it.
Some of the ideas included making really groovy bags from old t-shirts, watering cans from milk bottles, a hand-washing water dispenser and a tissue dispenser from an old Pringle chip container. Well done to all the learners who participated and special awards to Luke….. and Julia ……. with their winning items: a eggbox seed planter with milk bottle watering can and a tennis ball pen holder respectively. Why not think of innovative ways to re-use old items before discarding them. Pinterest is full of great ideas.
