Fun Thanksgiving From Recycle Guys
  1. Use your newspaper to stuff the grocery bag – add as much or little as you like! Make sure to glue the bottom shut.
  2. Cut the package labels into long cylinder shapes for feathers and glue them along the back edge of your paper bag. Make sure that you can see all the pretty feathers from the front!
  3. Glue your button or paper cutout eyes to the front of the bag.
  4. Cut another package label in a big triangle. Fold it in half and glue it below the eyes for the turkey’s beak.
  5. Attach the twig feet to the bottom edge of the back of the grocery bag.
  6. ENJOY! this Thanksgiving Recycle Craft

Green Halloween Tips
  • Don’t buy a costume. Make one! Use your imagination. Check your attic, basement and your parents’ closet to find a treasure trove of wonderful materials to make your costume. Some of Mom and Dad’s clothes from the 1970s might be scary enough to make the entire neighborhood run away!

  • Trade last year’s costume with a friend to get the most wear out of your creation. You’ll be a true original and a better environmental citizen.

  • If you don’t have time to make your own costume, consider renting rather than buying a costume. A rented costume is used many times over. That means less waste going to the landfill.
  • Use makeup instead of a mask. It’s safer and means less waste. But don’t buy over-packaged makeup kits. Choose materials that can be used again next year… and the year after!
