Oh, we do love a collection task at GoodGym Portsmouth! Raiding our homes for things that someone else can re-purpose.

In this case, it was:

47 loo roll & kitchen roll tubes; 7 cereal boxes; 19 egg boxes; 14 shoe boxes; 22 plastic tubs; and 45 other boxes of all shapes and sizes (I think!)

The Final Straw Youth Eco-Conference will use these somehow - maybe an experimental biomass project, or a huge sculptural representation of waste, or a working replica of a wind farm. Who knows? But I bet they'll learn lots and have fun doing it.
