Maya, age 14, transforms her old clothes to design earth friendly fashion
Maya’s Tip: Your recycled designs can make fabulous gifts for birthdays and holidays. Design gifts to fit your friend’s unique personalities. When you outgrow your recycled designs, pass them to a younger sibling and encourage her to add her own style to the piece.
Isabel, age 18, helps make her town green by recycling
Isabel’s Tip: Be creative with plastics! We all know certain plastics are bad for the environment. We recycle what we can, but there are other ways to reuse plastic. Braid plastic bag strips into friendship bracelets; crochet them into rugs and hats; iron them into sturdier bags.
