Question- Looking for P2 demonstration ideas - beyond the clay

I am wondering if anyone has come up with any innovative ideas lately on how to demonstrate P2?
As stated above, beyond the clay demo if possible, which I recall is quite good in its own right.  Am hoping to present P2 to a number of groups of 5th and 7th grade school children.
Do you know of any new, or tried and true P2 demo tools that children can interact with, see, and touch?
All ideas/suggestions from this creative group are greatly appreciated!!
{Prize for the best concept (which I will share with everyone) is a chocolate Hershey's Easter bunny!!} Just kidding.

What are the Pollution Prevention priorities for small business?


The Small Business Pollution Prevention Center (SBPPC) of the Iowa Waste Reduction Center has worked toward bridging the gap for small business environmental stewardship for the past nine years through applied research and training efforts targeted for small business.  Highlights of our accomplishments include:


         The Mobile Outreach for Pollution Prevention (MOPP) demonstration unit.

         The Environmental Management System (EMS) Service Center.

         Printed and web-based industry specific guidance manuals.

         Created training tools for community college programs addressing pollution prevention.

         Conducting applied research in waste specific problems to determine practical solutions.


Work remains to be done in applied research and providing training tools for small business to implement Pollution Prevention (P2) technologies.


To better focus these resources I would like to develop a “Small Business P2 Priorities List” through concensus of the listserv participants.


I have reviewed the list developed in 2000 by an NPPR workgroup and provided by MNTap’s Cindy McComas to EPA’s Ed Weiler for consideration in SBIR projects (our current dry machining project was initiated as a result.) So please respond... I will compile the list and then post the results for further discussion.
