Our water bottle recycling was going so well we decided to try and upcycle the bottles we collected .Upcycling means to reuse discarded objects or material in such a way as to create a product of higher quality or value than the original. some items which would then be sold to raise money.We had decided as part of our upcycling initiative. We created decorative items and storage containers. At our water festival we demonstarted how to make pencil cases using donated zips and plastic bottles. We also created a footstool from the recycled bottles . Here's what we did:
We are proud of our efforts to create a piece that is both stylish and usable from items that would otherwise be thrown away. Upcylcling is fun,environmentally friendly and saves water!
