Our local grade schools had a Build a Robot from Recyled materials contest. These are a few I snapped at the library where they were on display... I saw water bottles and egg cartons, thread spools, cereal boxes and MUCH talent. They used Trash to make ART..
Recycle means using waste materials to create something new, even waste water can be recycled... Recycle also means donating clothing and furniture and anything usable..
