Doing Your Own Bit

A clever use for your milk cartons

Much of our food and drink comes in cartons, and though in some countries they can be recycled, we also like to upcycle!

We all need a stylish handbag for the treasures we like to carry around. Well, what if you could make one yourself - from a milk carton? That would be good for the environment and you could carry around a book, pencils, sweets - or whatever else you like to bring out and about. Sounds fun, right?     

A little milk carton lived on a fridge shelf
Until one day, he was outside all by himself
"I'm off to the dump," he thought with a jump
But he didn't have to worry, because in a hurry,
he was transformed into ... a bag
