My monster cans reflect the three R's by me recycling the cans I used, reusing them to create art, and reducing the use of metals to create the project.

My artwork reflects the three R’s in many ways. It reflects recycling because many of the items on my artwork are recyclable. Then it reflects the reusing part of the three R’s because the canvas I used was an old painting that someone had thrown away. Lastly, my artwork reflects reducing because it shows that you can make art out of things that cause waste. Other people will then be inspired to make artwork out of these things reducing the amount of waste.
Forest Glen Middle School – 8th Grade
Trees are a part of our ecosystem; they function to make the Earth a healthier planet. The 3 R’s, reduce reuse and recycle keeps items out of landfills, conserves natural resources, and keeps our environment healthy and sustainable for the future. I represented the 3 R’s in my depiction of a tree. In my art piece I reused several objects I found in my own recycle bin including shopping bags as the tree, paper towel tubes for the leaves, and magazines pages and tissue paper scraps for the flowers. In addition, I recycled coffee grinds, Styrofoam, and pieces of cardboard. I chose to have my piece portray a message by highlighting simple ways in which an individual can start making the difference towards protecting and preserving the natural environment. I reduced waste in our ecosystem and produced a piece of art that educates people on how to help the Earth.
