A new craft every day

Recycled Animals

We throw away thousands of plastic bottles every day. Here’s an opportunity to give them a second life  as Recycled Animals and teach children the importance of recycling at the same time.

Trivia: By using reusable drink containers an average person can eliminate the need for 100 disposable bottles per year.
