This is a wonderful example of the large-scale Trash-to-Treasure projects my students can aspire to! I teach an after school class called "Trash-to-Treasure", and we collect trash from our school and homes, and repurpose it to make usable items. My students in Carbondale, Colorado are collaborating with the Carbondale Council on Arts an Humanities to design and construct the back drop for the upcoming Youth Fashion Show, November 19th, out of trash. A local woodworking and manufacturer is donating large flats of cardboard and wood to help us...I can't wait to show my students what is happening outside our community, and how this class is just the beginning.
