You can learn more about Choose Cartons on their website. You can see the story of a carton, share it, find where you can recycle your cartons in your area and check out the great crafts made with cartons. Teaching our children about sustainability and recycling is not just educational but FUN! Here are some ideas you can do with your cartons at home.
- Make a Boat and all other sorts of floaties
- Use as a gift box
- Pencil holder
- Mini Mail box/Allowance box
Have you ever made something out of a carton? Think about egg cartons too! I just pinned a beautiful flower wreath on Pinterest and it was made out of the egg holders of the egg carton! Can you believe that they are making them out of plastic now too. Where does it end?
But anywho, really.... go and enter the contest, what do ya got to lose?
Don't forget your reusable bags and milk 'carton' next time you go to the grocery store!
