Evanston resident Kitty Finn sent the RoundTable news and photos of a holiday-themed recycling project. She wrote, “I’m inspired to reuse, recycle and re-purpose. Perhaps my idea can be used to inspire others to create decorations using simple items rescued from the garbage.”
Ms. Finn, who buys Greek yogurt in the quart-sized tubs, said she envisioned a star cut from the foil lids and then used to decorate a Christmas tree.
“I saved the lids; traced and cut-out the stars; punched a whole into each one, added hooks and hung them on my Christmas tree.”
