What are some items that can be reused instead of thrown away?
Some famous examples:
· The Wright Brothers used bicycle parts to build the Kitty Hawk.
· Carl Tupper used polyethylene waste from Dupont to invent Tupperware.
· 1st Nordic Track built from parts from a junkyard.
· Rollerblades invented using old ski boots.
Note: Skip the part about just making a rectangle, then making
a craft later. Just do the craft right away, but make it in
a rectangular shape.
