John Gray High School students ask Public to help them help Cayman by Hi-Cone Plastic Six-Pack Recycling

Patrianna Ebanks, a John Gray Recycler, is collecting six pack holders from Miss Elaine the owner of  Miss Elaine's Restaurant in George Town, Grand Cayman. Miss Elaine is a keen Recycler. Thank you Miss Elaine and all your wonderful customers for recycling with the John Gray Recyclers and helping to preserve the Cayman Islands' heritage.

Below is a picture of the John Gray Recyclers and Mrs Gina Connolly and her students from the Lighthouse School at Bodden Beverages on 3 May 2006.  Mrs Connolly's class proudly present their 500 six pack holders to Mr Garth Tibbetts, the Bodden Beverages' Warehouse Manager. Mr Tibbetts explains that the six pack holders they use come on a roll and need much stretching before being placed on the six packs. He says that this is why Bodden Beverages are very thankful to the Community for helping make their task much easier by the use of used six pack holders and thanked us for our help.

JOHN GRAY RECYCLERS' SIX PACK HOLDER RECYCLING IN GEORGIA, USA
Mrs Iris Brand from Georgia, USA contacted the John Gray Recyclers via our website requesting six pack holders to create 3D snowflakes. We sent Mrs Brand 500 six pack holders and in return she sent us a 3D snowflake. The pictures below show us about to send the six pack holders to Mrs Brand, and the 3D snowflake created by Mrs Brand. Many schools in the USA as well as a hospital in Canada have contacted the John Gray Recyclers for the snowflake instructions. You will find these instructions below the picture of the snowflake.
You can also learn how to make this lovely snowflake, as well as many other beautiful works of recycled art, by downloading a copy of Mrs. Brand's book, "America's Buried Treasures" at 
http://www.abtn.com/books/ .  Mrs. Brand has dedicated 50% of all 
proceeds to the John Gray Recyclers' global environmental/educational projects.
Also, look out for "Cayman's Buried Treasures" coming soon!

SNOWFLAKE INSTRUCTIONS

Make a 3-D snowflake with 20 / plastic 6-pack ring holders.

STEP 1First, lay one set of rings flat face up and length-wise to use as a number pattern. With a magic marker, place the number 1 in the middle between the first two rings; the number 2 between the second two rings, and the number 3 between the third. At the top, mark the first ring with the number 4; the second with the number 8; and the third with the number 6. At the bottom, mark the first ring with the number 5; the second with the number 9; and the third with the number 7. You will be referring to this as you work with the 20 6-pack rings.

STEP 2Place two 6-pack rings back-to-back and staple them to each other in the middle at points 1, 2 and 3 as marked on your number pattern. This makes one pair. Now, make 9 more pairs just like you just did for a total of 10 pair.

STEP 3On each side of each pair, fold points 4 and 5 toward each other and staple them together. Repeat with other side. Then do the same with points 6 and 7 of each side. Notice that you only have the middle rings left open.

STEP 4Attach all the pairs together by stapling one pair’s front 8 to the next pair’s back 8 and one pair’s front 9 to the next pair’s back 9. Be careful to align all the pairs the same way. Continue until all pairs are attached, so you have a long streamer. (To make a party streamer, just continue making and attaching pairs this way until the streamer is as long as you want it to be.)

STEP 5Cut 2 strings. Run the first string through the front loop of all the pairs at points 4-5. Gather the snowflake in a circle, and tie tightly. Repeat with the back loop of all the pairs. Staple 8s and 9s where the circle joins.

STEP 6 Tie the string ends together to form the hanger. Or, you can cut off the string ends and tie a ribbon or piece of yarn to the back instead.

STEP 7If you like it plain, you’re done. If you’d prefer, decorate it with glitter, spray paint (silver paint works great) or spray snow.

 
JOHN GRAY RECYCLERS' SIX PACK HOLDER RECYCLING IN OHIO, USA
Please view the pictures below and see the amazing sculpture created by Pam Testa from plastic holders collected in the Cayman Islands by John Gray Recyclers, the Lighthouse School and Triple C School. This sculpture is hanging in an old Ice House in Ohio, USA. Ms Pam Testa is pictured with Mr Jeremy Forbes, Community John Gray Recycler and Cayman Islands' Seacology Representative, who is at University in Ohio. When he heard about this amazing project being created from John Gray Recyclers' six pack holders he decided to visit the old Ice House to see the wonderful work of art that Pam Testa has created.
