Joe Michell Elementary and Middle School students in Livermore, Calif., are converting used Mylar juice pouches into pencil pouches, tote bags and dog leashes, which are then given to charities. The project is run in conjunction with a sewing class and a grant from the Altamont Education Advisory Board. "Students are using materials that would be otherwise in our dumps and are putting them to good use," said Laura Lembo, principal. "Plus, they're learning the skills of sewing. On top of that, they're donating what they've created."
