What is your wish for this project?

We are creating the first Ohio Dragon Earth Bench using recycled water bottles filled with plastic (bottle bricks). Our students created the bench after collecting and stuffing over 1000 bottle bricks from recycled plastic water bottles and trash. Next, they used natural materials (cob made from clay soil, sand and straw) to cover the bottle bricks, leaving a "truth window" to showcase the recycled material more

How did it go?

We were able to work with After School Discovery and Kids for Positive Change students after school to cover the dragon bench with mortar. However, due to the change in weather this fall, we were unable to paint our bench. We will be able to finish painting our bench in the spring.
