If you’ve got junky stuff and a scrappy spirit, make something new with something old and enter your project in Earth Day Canada’s 2011 . Challenge
“Upcycling” is the very environmentally friendly practice of taking old or unused materials and turning them into something useful and of greater value.
The contest opened October 3 and runs until November 27, 2011. To enter, send a description of your project with step-by-step instructions, pictures, or a video tutorial to Earth Day Canada.
Prizes include a Panasonic cordless power tool, and exposure on the Earth Day Canada website. If participating as a class or school, you could win an excellent, active learning tool—a Panaboard electronic whiteboard.
