Robert Frost family and consumer science students Jordyn Haskins and Erin Sullivan recently entered the Long Island FACS Sustainability Challenge and won third place. For their project, the pair collected Doritos chip bags from the school’s cafeteria, washed them, dried them on a clothesline and then sewed the bags together, layer by layer, to make an apron.

“We tried to solve the problem of eliminating chip bags going into landfills, and used the repurposed aprons during our FACS classes,” said Haskins. “To make sure that future generations enjoy what we enjoy, we need sustainability. If we can reuse and make different things out of used materials like rubber and plastic, we can make a better future.”
