Young re-inventor of the year - Wearable waste

Re-invent rubbish into something you can wear or upcycle old clothes into something new. This was the challenge set for Young Re-inventor of the Year 2016 and over 100 re-inventions were submitted from across Perth.

Winning entries included a hat weaved from plastic bags, jewellery made from magazines, a hat decorated with tea bag tags and dresses made from candy wrappers, upcycled clothes and old electrics.

Each category (Primary School, High School and Community/Individual) had equal winners; all receiving a $500 sustainability prize pack to help them along their sustainability journey.
