Plastic Man! Made From An Assortment Of Plastics !
On Friday after Jack got home from school we made a plastic man from milk caps and other plastics that I had been collecting from our long life milk and a supplement bottle and a plastic golf ball and his hat is made from a black plastic bottle cap and the brim is made from the black plastic insert from the woollies green bags and string to hold him together . Jack and I punched holes in each cap with a nail and a little hammer (my meat tenderizer) and I used a large sewing needle to push the string through the holes and some googly eyes that I purchased some years back from the $2 store. It's very easy and again a great fun activity to do with your children, so start saving those milk caps ! It's way better if we don't get more plastics but if you do its better to find other uses for it . When we went shopping on Saturday I said to Kev and Jack lets not get any thing with plastic , it was impossible , toilet rolls, long life milk, 2 green coconuts, natural sultanas,leg of lamb and they were all wrapped in plastic, easier said then done ,we use our green bags and our mesh bags for fruit & vegetables so we don't get any extra plastic. I Wonder how others avoid plastic ,please post and tell us all your great tips for reducing plastic.
