The average Canadian generates around nine-elephants worth of waste per year — a large portion of these materials could be diverted for reuse! Learn how to integrate creative reuse into the classroom through this hands-on craft using materials lying around the house or in the recycling bin. Easily translated into a Zoom project, teachers will learn how to create a simple loom and french knit a rug, scarf, finger puppet, or chapstick holder necklace while using sustainable principles and methods. Hosted by SUPPLY Victoria — a nonprofit with the mission to divert materials from the landfill and put them into the hands of people who need them in order to create a more sustainable, creative, and inclusive Victoria.
