‘Don’t throw it, re-use it’

From making paper, to papier-mâché flower pots and arty insects, there are plenty of things you can do with recycled material.
This is what children learnt after creating useful and crafty objects with recycled material to take home during the Don’t throw it – Re-use it activity organised by Thames Chase Trust at the Forest Centre in Upminster today.
Emily Holt, from Keep Britain Tidy, attended the session and showed children how to make pencils, little boxes and creative craft with recycled material.
Mary Wright, from the Thames Chase Trust, said: “We have been amazed at how many children attended the session and had a go. We wanted to show them that even if rubbish is rubbish, a lot of it can still be re-used and recycled.
“We are trying to encourage people to take responsibilities when it comes to their rubbish and this is a way of educating children while having fun.”
