Justin Hall-Tipping: Freeing energy from the grid
Mike Biddle: We can recycle plastic
Mike Biddle vil ha søpla di!
I’ve started stripping this room in preparation for making a new bathroom.
I pulled out every single nail I could find and used a powerful magnet to collect them all on a wonderful little nail-ball. Harcore recycling going on, but also to prevent kids and animals to step on them when I put the planks outside. I also did it to make it safe for my kids to «help» me. I want them to take as much part as possible, but a teardown involves many small dangers for tiny people. On this project my two sons age four and five helped tear down panels and cupboards, beating the crap out of everything I pointed to. Great fun! And after removing all the nails my oldest son Noah helped me throw it all out the windows.

This is a good project to do with kids. Just start gathering bits and pieces of junk in a box, or clean out a few drawers, and you soon have enough raw material to create your own little eco warrior tribe!
Any material can be used. On the creature above we have a wine cork body, milk bottle cap feet, Elton John glasses made from a piece of balsa from a broken 3d puzzle, some feathers, a thumbtack nose, and eyes made from nuts. Oh, and the mouth was cut from a newspaper.
