Christmas Parade - Dec. 1, 2012
We created a "recycled" float for Merced's annual Hometown Christmas Parade. Our float was made from recycled materials from the UC Merced campus.
Snowman: Plastic bags filled with styrofoam peanuts and other styrofoam scraps.
Trees: 2-liter soda bottles wrapped with reused paper.
Tree trim: Reused foam padding that had been used to ship electronics.
Float trim: Reused wood painted with left over white paint. Blue bottles were salvaged from recycling.
UC Merced: Spelled out in crushed red and green cans.
