More trash & more treasure!

Rachel, a crafty 11 year old was searching for a way to recycle the six-pack rings left in the store. The power of the internet, led us to Pak-it Products website(,as the manufacturer of these plastic contraptions they have offered society several creative alternatives for their use. We started out small re-creating their snow flake, and created a palm tree and a jellyfish because they seemed more appropriate for the island (as seen near our registration desk). Our biggest project was the creation of the hammock using 100 six-pack rings in the process, this project took several days and a trip to the hardware store for metal rings and clothes line. We worked the clothes line through the six-pack rings to secure each loop and Bryan from maintenance cut boards for the spacers and drilled holes for the clothes line to fit through. Overall team effort to show, you don't have to throw it in the trash.
