Last Summer, I brought the family to the newly opened Delaware Children's Museum in Wilmington, DE. The last time (last year - see post about Please Touch Museum) we went to a children's museum, the kids and including me and my wife had lots of fun. Visiting DCM also provided lots of fun and learning experience. Even though DCM is not as big as Please Touch Museum, there were a lot of activities for the kids (and adults) to enjoy. The kids had a blast and they are looking forward to going back at DCM.
So, similar to what I did when we visited Please Touch Museum, I started looking for what they are doing for recycling. And just what I expected, the museum also recycles and you will see several recycling bins around the museum. Their recycling bins are shown below.
I thought I was done for the day, until I saw the Eco House. The Eco House is a very informative area in DCM and has details on ways of helping save our planet. It shows what can be done in a house to make it more Eco-friendly.
The first thing I saw was the living roof. You can see plants on the roof of the Eco House.
Also around the Eco House, there are several items made from recycled products. Aside from helping save the environment, these items can also make your Eco House beautiful.
This bird feeder was made from recycled plastic bottles.
This wonderful art piece used to be glass bottles and electrical wires.
The fishes and other parts of this beautiful art piece used to be soda cans.
This clock was once a bumper of a car.
This bowl was created from paper labels.
Another bowl but this one was a vinyl record once.
A "laughter" sign made from tin cans and scrap wood.
I hope you have learned something from the Eco House. I really did learn a lot and it would be nice to see these materials/items being used more and more so we can do our part in saving our precious resources.
