Cougars to make treasure out of recyclables, trash
Trash To Treasure gives students the chance to create art out of recycled materials and will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. in the main lobby of Cougar Village.
Materials such as bottles, bottle caps, cardboard, paper, paint, wire, metal, plastic, string and random art supplies will be provided free for students to utilize in making their art.
The event was organized by the Cougar Village Community Service Committee and is in conjunction with RecycleMania — a competition between hundreds of colleges that promotes environmental awareness and activism.
“This is an effort to show the value of things we don’t use anymore by making new uses of them,” said committee member Blythe Nguyen. “Bring what you don’t want and leave with something you do. That is the concept.”
Students can then submit their pieces to the Art of Recycling Contest on March 22 for a chance to win a prize.
