The challenge is for children to make Christmas Tree Decorations out of recycled
materials such as eggshells, cardboard, newspapers, plastic and glass bottles, tin cans, milk and juice cartons, etc. All of the decorations need to be made from recycled
materials and the competition aims to get children and their parents thinking about how
to reuse and recycle materials that might otherwise be thrown away. The competition is
run annually by North Tipperary County Council to encourage the Reduce, Reuse and
Recycle of materials in schools and homes.
