While convenient, plastic bags are a problem.
Even if you think you are helping by recycling them, that act can lead to bigger problems. Placing your recyclables in these bags can damage the equipment used at recycling facilities.
Joining us with a fun way to reduce your use of plastic bags by UPCYCLING is Analiese Smith from Waukesha County Recycling.
Come make your own upcycled, recycled and nature crafts on Saturday, September 21st at the annual Apple Harvest Festival at Retzer Nature Center in the now TOTALLY FREE Children’s Area!
Also shop the arts and crafts vendors for upcycled and recycled items. For more information, visit WaukeshaCounty.gov/AppleHarvestFestival.
