In 2 hours create the most awesome thing you can think of using waste that would have been recycled. Create candy wrapper backpacks, bottle mosaics, a flower pot, a fashionable dress out of newspaper, or perhaps a night light made out of those mini Chinese umbrellas. Think big, get artsy, and help solve a big problem such as our wasteful society!
