Recycled Craft Idea – Upcycled Glitter Paper

DIY Upcycled Glitter Paper

Here at Helen Woodward Animal Center’s Education Department, we know that an animal and its ecosystem depend on one another! To practice taking care of the environment we all share, (and have loads of fun doing it!) our team put together a super recycled craft idea using waste (old newspaper) and turning it into Upcycled Glitter Paper! We think that’s RECYCLING and REUSING at its best!

What is “Upcycling?”

Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value!
