OK, this isn't a high-volume application for recycled plastics, but it's still pretty cool. Jim Griffioen, a stay-at-home Dad in the Detroit area, has blogged about making his son's Halloween costumes the past couple of years, and taken shots in appropriate run-down Detroit locations. Last year's RoboCop was made from an old bike helmet, laundry detergent bottles and "a bunch of plastic crap," among other items. Check out the link, you'll love the photos (and captions) of the little guy visiting with some of Detroit's finest. This year, he's "The Rocketeer", with a helmet made from an old BMX helmet, the lenses out of an old pair of sunglasses and a piece of acrylic, along with a rocket pack made from two-liter soda bottles. Super creative stuff. Thanks to Rhoda Miel, Plastics News' staff reporter in Detroit, for contributing this item today -- and have a Happy Halloween.
