DIBOLL, TX (KTRE) -

Diboll Elementary students took recycling to a whole new level Monday. They celebrated Earth Day by making musical instruments out of recycled materials.

"Ms. Kirkland's music classes have done an amazing job to incorporate environmental stewardship on their campus," Amanda Anderson, the executive director of Angelina Beautiful/Clean, said.

Phyllis Kirkland, a music teacher at Diboll Elementary, had students in grades K-3 use everyday items such as pizze boxes, cereal boxes, Kleenex boxes, 2-liter soda bottles, recyclable plastics, and even old Christmas decorations "to create a Happy Earth Day sound."
