Recycling and Upcycling - Keep it Going
Recycle or Upcycle? We do both here at Red Mill Elementary.
Upcycling is the process of converting old or discarded materials into something useful and often beautiful. For example taking your plastic grocery bag and turning it into the benches in our front lobby. Which we have earned 6 so far at Red Mill.
Recycling is a practice that takes an item and targets it for reuse, returning it back to the cycle of daily contribution to society rather than discarding it to trash. For example an aluminum can which can be recycled endlessly.
Keep up those great recycling and upcycling practices. Check the current lists of items and suggestions for where to drop them off.
