The three fourth grade classes at New Bloomfield Elementary brainstormed ideas, and voted for the slogan 'Ice Cream "Don't Litter!"' Guided by their art teacher, Mrs. Veronica Gares, the sketched ideas for and created the ice cream cone. They used a variety of recycled materials including old wrapping paper, sheets, fabric scraps, carpeting rolls, and pillow stuffing. The students created the cone from the wrapping paper and construction paper, the 'ice cream' from old pillow stuffing and an old white sheet. They created the cherry using old fabric scraps, pillow stuffing and popsicle sticks. The cherry lifts up to reveal a tube, created from old carpeting rolls, that funnels the trash down into the trash can. The can is on display by the front entrance of the school, across from the office.
