Most of us want to help the environment by recycling as much as we can. Australian’s are known to produce 540kg of household waste per person, each year. As a result, the country is generating an estimated 67 million tonnes of waste, but only 37% is being recycled. Below are some ways to get your kids involved in upcycling, and let them turn their waste into a fun creative project.
This amazing idea to upcycle your tin cans and turn them into planters. You can have the kids decorate these however they want, and then plant their favourite flower.
