2. Rainbow Trees From Up-cycled Plastics
This post was submitted by Anya Beaumont, who worked with children from a local primary school to create this beautiful installation of rainbow trees. Initially, she asked the children and staff to bring in any non-recyclable plastics they had at home or in school. From her experience as a parent, she known the inevitability of finding broken and discarded plastic toys taking up space in cupboards, let alone plastic milk carton tops and other items it is hard to dispose of sustainably. A beautiful project with kids to educate them to recycle. Link to the post.
