Trash to Treasure 

Art: Creative Reuse Showcase

Cassette tapes. Coffee stirrers. Floppy disks. If you think of these as trash, the Chittenden Solid Waste District's Creative ReUse Showcase will make you reconsider. Chittenden County high schoolers turned these and other landfill-bound items into treasure for this annual art competition, which encourages community members to think twice about what we consume and discard. South Burlington High School students Sarah Ferry and Alex Groen nabbed the Best-in-Show title with their eco-friendly entry "Put a Cork In It," a table creatively fashioned from old Christmas-tree stands, recycled PVC pipe and dozens of wine corks. From March 1 to 28, you can view all of this year's winning pieces — and vote for your favorite — at Frog Hollow Vermont State Craft Center in Burlington.
