Crafts: Make It!
  • Oceans of Plastic : From Streets to Sea Oceans of Plastic : From Streets to Sea

    One of the more confronting teaching examples that the ladies from HEART demonstrated for us, was a brief lesson on plastic waste and its effects on sea life. Kimberly decided that the best way to be blunt about plastic waste was to dump an entire garbage bag full of bottles and plastic containers right in front of our eyes. The three of us sat there feeling mildly disturbed. Trash! In front of us. On our work tables. Touching our stuff. In our personal space. Yuk!

The paper they've already collected is recycled and reused for crafts and other activities.

  • Reusing Our Plastic: Vertical Hanging Garden Reusing Our Plastic: Vertical Hanging Garden

    The vertical garden is a great way to utilize hanging space and conserve water at the same time. All garden pots need holes poked through the bottom for drainage. Usually, water passes through the soil and drips out of the holes along the ground. The vertical garden stops water wastage by allowing the water to drip out of the holes and fall straight through to the plant below.
