Earth Day Week with The ScrapKins

A typical family consumes 182 gallons of soda, 29 gallons of juice, 104 gallons of milk and 26 gallons of bottled water a year. That’s a lot of containers! Why not make some cool art projects out of them with The ScrapKins?

My buddy author / illustrator Brian Yanish created The ScrapKins from his childhood drawings that his mom saved over the years. The ScrapKins are a group of fun-loving monsters that live in a recycling center and build their world out of the things we throw away. The ScrapKins mission is to encourage creativity and resourcefulness through stories and recycled art projects. In honor of Earth Day, there are many events that The ScrapKins are doing throughout New York City. New Yorkers are invited to attend to these events and also purchase the book: The ScrapKins Build It Book: Volume I. 12 Things You Can Make from Junk which you can find on AMAZON.
