We humans often make products, consume them and then chuck them away, littering our planet and making loads of waste. But there is a better way – the circular economy!

Click here to discover how this process can help us all to be more sustainable!

Help inspire people to re-use, repair and recycle with this fun creative comp, and win a massive £250 voucher to spend at The Entertainer Toy Shop !

Here’s how to enter:

DESIGN A POSTER

Your poster should inspire people to find creative ways to repurpose an item from something that might otherwise be thrown away.

Perhaps you could create a bird feeder from an old bottle? Or make a magazine rack from an empty cereal box? The only limit is your imagination!

Make sure your poster has clear step-by-step instructions so that others can follow along easily. Use short, simple language that’s straight to the point. And make sure the design is bold, colourful and eye-catching!

Here is an example of the kind of thing your poster could show. Remember, your poster should be a drawing (we’ve just used photos to help explain it!)

EXAMPLE: T-SHIRT TOTE BAG

You’ll need an old T-shirt, a ruler and a pair of scissors
1. Lay your T-shirt flat and carefully trim off the sleves, neckline and bottom seam. You might want to trim a bit more off the back of the neck line so the front and back are even.
2. Using your ruler as a guide, cut narrow strips up the bottom of your T-shirt. They should be about 3cm apart, and between 10 and 25cm long, depending on the size of your T-shirt and how deep you want the bag.
3. Pinch the top of each individual strip between your thumb and finger, and gently pull down with the other hand until the strip stretches and curls inwards.
4. Separate the top and bottom of each strip and tie them together with two simple knots.

Put your stuff inside and go!
