Container Drive for Education
Plastic~Free Town collected plastic containers such as ones used for takeout, snacks, produce, and other products. Rather than throwing them out after one use, we donated these containers to the Highland Park Middle School art room. They were then used to prop up sculptures, hold paint, and store other supplies.
These donations have been collected and passed on to the art room for about six months now, and we plan on continuing this even as our members enter high school.
It's easy for you to reuse plastic containers and other objects around your house, too. Check out blogs to find ways how, such as this one, or come up with your own creative second uses.
Some ways Plastic~Free Town members have reused plastic containers in our homes are as flower pots, desk organizers, and other types of storage.
