Plastic Fantastic? It’s becoming clear that plastic is damaging the environment. Much of what we buy is wrapped in plastic. Frouckje loves creative challenges and discovered that you sometimes can give plastic a second and more sustainable life. She grew herbs in grape-wrappings for Earth Day. They are ready to be planted in the herb jars you can make out of plastic milk bottles in this creative, “upcycling” workshop.
