CHERRY HILL, NJ (CBS) – Cherry Hill’s Earth Day festival tomorrow will include new ways to look at the mantra of reduce, re-use, recycle: in art.

The Art Blooms Earth Festival at Croft Farm kicks off the week-long event. There’s a student eco-art competition open to all township schools.

“We have 28 entries into the contest and we have, I think, six either clubs or students selling as vendors and this just our first year so we’re excited that next year it will be even bigger and better,” says Beck Middle School media specialist and librarian Ramona Bregatta.

Student Autumn Rijos says she and her friends have been pretty excited about making something new out of something used.

“We’re turning the magazine into a bowl. First we cut the magazines in half and then we glue them together one by one and we just coil them.”

Bowl sales benefit charity.
