Creative Reinvention

NISE Network product
Description: 

The Creative Reinvention sustainability activity shows visitors how common waste materials can be recycled, reused, and reinvented into brand new products—a process called the "circular economy." Activity cards ask visitors to guess what recycled materials were used to make various products, and challenge them to think of creative ways to reuse the waste materials in their homes.
