On Jan. 16, 2014, Ecology Club learned how to upcycle. Upcycling is when you take something you don’t need and make it useful.
We took an empty milk carton and made wallets. First we cut the top and bottom and cleaned it out with a disinfectant wipe. Then we folded it into 3 creases. We pulled it back up and cut the sides to the first crease. We put duct tape on the sides and corners. Finally, we folded it in and on the creases, then put Velcro on it and you are done.
AT-HOME ACTION: Upcycle any composite material container into a wallet or coin purse. To try this at home, use any composite material and follow these instructions.
