One day I found this on the street near my house. It took me some time to figure out what its use is. One end was open and the colors told me it was a children’s toys. It’s not a beautiful piece of trash, but I added it to my plastic collection. When I figured out that it holds chalk to probably draw on the streets, it made me sad. Not only can kids not get chalk on their fingers, but someone actually spent their time creating this chalk holder and design the ugly pattern. After studying plastic more closely last year, many lids and caps have extra plastic for aesthetics reasons. Beauty and function have long interested me, and this adds to the reasons we love plastic so much and hate it.
