8th Grade science students at Eiland Middle School had the opportunity to learn about the 4-R's on Tuesday morning in a firsthand and practical way. The classes of Shannon Smith and Charlie Smith learned about recycling from an area artist, Katrina Estes Hill who used recyled and re-purposed material
to make a donation of artwork to the school.

The presentation was part of the classes' preparation for the science portion of the upcoming NC2 test. Hill explained the 4-R's as Reduce - Re-use - Recycle and Re-purpose; reducing the amount of waste we produce, re-using products when we can, recycling those products we can't and re-purposing items for other uses.

Hill provided a perfect example of re-purposing as she presented the school with her artwork of President Obama and Rosa Parkes which were made from recycled products. The paintings will be exhibited in the Eiland school library.

Hill encouraged the students to recycle and provided some examples of things that could and should be recycled. She also pointed out the "blue recycle box" located at the Louisville Coliseum  and it's purpose.
