By turning styro into a well-functioning glue using a few simple materials and following a few easy steps, you reduce the percentage of expanded polystyrene contributing to the earth's pollution.
Orange oil contains properties that melt polystyrene. By using orange oil and polystyrene to make glue, you can create a more non-toxic adhesive that not only works well and promotes recycling, but also smells great!
What you will need:
1. glass jar with lid (preferably tight-sealing)
2. pure orange oil
3. mixing stick, or any sort of stick that can be used to mix substances (ex. popsicle sticks)
4. styrofoam (preferably old pieces of styrofoam meant to be thrown away)
Step 1: Preparing the styrofoam
Do this in a well-ventilated area.
