Going Green for Halloween...

Hello green people!

I wanted to give a huge thank-you to everyone who came out for the halloween carnival.  Our booth was a big success and we made so many candy holders and ghosts that we ran out of materials.  The recycling games were also tons of fun and I think we did a good job reaching out to the kids.  Also, a big thank-you for the POLY/PMSE ACS chapter for teaming up with up and donating the supplies, we couldn't have done it without you!

For those of you who didn't make it out here is what our booth did:  One section of our booth did arts and crafts with the kids where we made candy holders out of recycled toilet paper rolls and tissue paper that I have been saving from my "shopping sprees" over the last year (i.e. the tissue paper that stores love to wrap your purchases in before putting it in the bag).  We also made tootsie pop ghosts using paper that we all have been saving that was used on one side but not on the other.  The other section of our booth did recycling games and trivia to teach kids how to recycle!  The kids learned how to sort their recycling (were even timed!) and also tried to knock down some bottles (recycled vitamin water bottles) to win prizes!  Here is some pictures we got of the event.....
