HN 20 | Trashing Poverty: How upcycling is helping kids learn and play

Poverty makes life hard, but it can also drive innovation.

Agricultural facilitators and teachers are using their creative thinking-caps and transforming common trash into highly useful objects. It just goes to show, one person's garbage is another's opportunity!


Make your own upcycled plastic planter!

This is a great project to do with kids as spring approaches. It's simple, cheap, rewarding, and teaches a valuable, hands-on lesson about resource management. 

1. Cut open one side of a washed out plastic bottle.

2. Fill with potting soil.

3. Plant and water a seed or seedling. 

4. Watch it grow!

5. Take pictures and send them to us so we can see your garden and hear your story! EMAIL US!
