Sustainability Station

Upcycle found materials from the waste bin into Strawbees connectors.
Ages 8 and up | Grades 3-12

Use any plastic waste to create your own set of connectors, making the perfect sustainable building set creator with infinite piece production. The Sustainability Station is a durable hand-operated machine to last for many years and can cut all 4 of the connector shapes for your building project. The dies will cut through cardstock, chipboard, plastic sheets and more with ease. 

Implementation of this Kit

The Sustainability Station is a tool not to be used as-is on or it’s own and rather as an add-on for Lesson Plans, Activities and Explorations

We want to rethink the usage of cardboard boxes, food carton packaging, bamboo plates, and plastic shampoo bottles from one-time, single use and instead repurpose them. Use these upcycled materials to move toward responsible production and consumption for student’s project creation. Creating a set of connectors gives you autonomy over material type to make lightweight builds or produce thicker, rigid pieces and build projects from them depending on your needs.
