  1. It’s real hard for me to think of an invention, exspesily with recycled things like cans. I know theres many uses and all but….. I can’t think. I’ll have to be brainstorming all day long. hope i can make something

  2. Hello. I have thought of a way to recycle and save lives. I do not know how to enter the contest though. What I have done is take a bunch of empty bottles and made them in to a P.F.D. (personal flotation device). I think this would be a good way to recycle.
