The Cork Project


 
It started as a collection for Viera High School 3D Art class in 2013 that culminated in an art show at the Art Gallery of Viera in April 2014 but we are still collecting and using corks in our projects and sharing corks with whoever needs them!

We placed bins in different venues to collect wine corks. Total Wine and More in Viera still has our collection bin where anyone can deposit their used corks. We come to empty the bin and bring bags of corks back.


Some of other projects we created with those corks were racing cars at GrilleFest 2015, reindeer for Manatee's Environmental Club, and free bobbers (or any craft, really) for fishing distributed at Ocean Reef Beach Festival 2015.

The collection is ongoing, so if you are in need of some corks, contact us at info@RecycleBrevard.org.




Free Collection and Distribution of Reusable Items


Currently picking up reusable items (such as rope, pieces of Styrofoam, nursery pots, and egg cartons) from Elastec American Marine, Keep Brevard Beautiful Central Chapter, neighbors, and friends to take to Brevard County Farmer's Market, The Reusable Resources Adventure Center, and various schools in Brevard County -- among those are Viera High School, Manatee Elementary, and Brevard Community College Montessori School.

If you have items that you think could be reused and would like to donate or if you need used items (rejects, scraps, or simply not new) for projects, contact us at info@RecycleBrevard.org and we will see how we can help.


Preschool and Early Elementary (Kindergarten through Third Grade) Program


We have prepared a program for children (pre-K through 3rd grade) that introduces the concepts of reusing and recycling. As part of the program we read a story, do an activity, and make a badge.

We bring all the material used and from start to finish the program takes about 1h. The recommended group size is 15 children, but as long as we have space to have all children sitting in a circle, the group could be a little bigger.

The program also includes a copy of a "letter to parents" for each child who participates so teachers can inform families about the extra activity offered in class and send home more information on reusing/recycling to get parents involved.

We have presented part of this program at the Autism Awareness Festival 2012 in April 2012 and starting May 2012 we have been to preschools to do the full program. The first two preschools we visited were Mustard Seed Kidz and Coral Reef Academy. We also went to Brevard Community College Montessori School during the summer of 2012 and had the chance to not only present this program there, but also to do multiple activities with the children reusing various materials.

We are doing this on a volunteer basis and would like to visit more schools. We would love to come to your school if you have the time and are interested in covering the topic with your students. To learn more, please contact us at info@RecycleBrevard.org.

Feel free to pass on this information to anyone you think might be interested. We would like to bring this program to as many schools as possible.

Thank you!



Every Second Saturday of the Month - Recycling at Beach Clean-Up


We bring our recycle bin and sign to collect any recyclables found during the Monthly Pelican Beach Clean Up in Satellite Beach Florida and participate in cleaning up that section of the beach. Always a great opportunity to take wonderful pictures and reconnect with nature!



Every Last Sunday of the Month - Free Market of Melbourne


We participate in the The Really, Really Free Market of Melbourne/Palm Bay bringing our items to give away and sometimes bringing somebody else's items home. My daughter loves the tapes of children's movies she finds there!
