DIY ice cream garland

Make back-to-school more fun

A to-do list is more than just practical – it can also be incredibly creative and even environmentally-friendly all at the same time! This craft idea helps you keep a regular eye on your study deadlines and is designed with sustainability in mind. We used empty toilet roll tubes to make the ice creams (one for every day of the week) and coloured them in using vibrant  highlighters. But not just any old ones – we chose edding EcoLine highlighters, which are eco-friendly through and through. Instead of plastic, over 90% of the raw materials used in the manufacture of these markers is renewable. Likewise, when it comes to writing and adding finer details, you can simply choose a "green" permanent marker from the same series. These are made primarily from recycled plastics sourced from post-consumer plastic waste.
