DENVER (CBS4) – One person’s trash can be another’s holiday decorations, and they’re a lot of them on display in Englewood.
Thirty schools are taking part in a tree decorating competition. The catch — all ornaments must be made out of recycled items.
Students in grades one through eight used things like water bottles, old shopping bags, even left over plastic Easter eggs.
Anyone can see the trees for free at the Inverness Hotel and vote on their favorite eco-friendly decor.
“The kids impress me more and more each year with the things we come up with, the different mediums they use to create decorations, and you can see the colorful display they put on,” Peggy Scaggs with Trash to Trees said.
It’s the third annual Trash to Trees competition. The decorations will be on display until Dec. 12.
