Taking recycling to another level
OLIVE HILL, Ky. (AP) - May 31, 2011 (WPVI) -- When the kids in Beverly McDavid's science class recycle soda bottles, they don't just bring them back to the store.
They're making a greenhouse out of the plastic bottles.
The students at Kentucky's West Carter Middle School are using about 1,000 bottles to construct a 10-foot-by-10-foot greenhouse.
Science club members started the project in January.
McDavid tells a local paper even the foundation is recycled.
It's made from old tires filled with dirt.
