EvCC Employees Turn Recycled Bottles into Children’s Greenhouse

Snippet: 
A group of Everett Community College employees turned 1,500 donated plastic bottles into a greenhouse for kids at EvCC’s Early Learning Center. The 2-liter bottles, donated by Safeway Bottling, are the new greenhouse’s walls. The greenhouse will be used for the children to grow vegetables, fruit and herbs. “This is a great way to show children ways in which something we typically think of as trash might be used to improve the environment and promote sustainability,” said Holly McFaul, director of the Early Learning Center, which provides care for children ages 1 to 5 years old.
