Here is an example of a repeatedly re-purposed cardboard tube.
First it was a Greenpeace windmill awareness prop. Then it was turned into a Catrina for an Art Center for a Dia De Los Muertos event. Then it was a giant doll for Mother's Day. Finally it became a bus stop companion (named after those streets) ready to take pictures with, and was featured in roadside america.
I hope you have a great recycling weekend.
