We created a foil snack wrapper monster. this guy has been made out of all recycled materials from our school maker space - a box, scraps of construction paper, hot chocolate tins and lots and lots of wrappers. Those wrappers are all that "Snacky" eats and it's a good job too, because otherwise, they would end up in landfill. Snacky is going to help prevent us from miss sorting these wrappers in the recycling bin too where they often end up. When his tummy gets full, we are emptying it out and saving the wrappers for a "Zero Waste" box from Terracycle, a private company that will recycle them. We hope to teach the school to choose alternative snacks that don't involve wrappers as well!
