RECYCLING ROCKS!!!! KERI PORTER WINGATE OAKS CENTER
UPCYCLING TIRES INTO PLANTERS FOR OUR SCHOOL!!! My students and I recycle (upcycle) tires and we make them into beautiful planters! We prime, paint and decorate them into beautiful pieces of art! They become planters and we place them in our school courtyards.
SCHOOL BEAUTIFICATION!!! Tires make great planters!!!
BOTTLE CAP ART We collect bottle caps in our recycling center and then we make beautiful pieces of art with them. Most caps do not break down so we are upcycling them in a positive way!!!
Rain Barrel CRAZY!!! My students and I clean out food drum barrels and repurpose them into rain barrels for our school and community! They are AWESOME!!! Water conservation is very important!!!
Teaching my students to become stewards of their environment is very important to me!! WE ALL CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN OUR WORLD BY UPCYCLING AND REUSING AND RECYCLING!!!
