It’s time for your kids to put on their creativity hat and show us how they repurpose, reuse, upcycle to honor our 🌎

So what does that mean?

Kids can make whatever they want as long as it’s Earth themed. Maybe it’s a frame, sunglasses, a car or a drawing… the sky’s the limit, we ask that they just BE RESOURCEFUL.

Use items typically found in the garbage or recycle cart. Please NO new or raw materials (tape, glue and staples are okay)
