Why I made it:
- I made a recyclable candy dispenser because a lot of people eat candy especially kids and my reason being is you don't want someones hands touching your candy. Like for example I was gonna get m&ms and my cousin just came from out side and he touched all the candy and i didn't want know more because his hands where dirty and had germs on them. I did not want it happening again so i made a solution I made a candy dispenser out of recyclables it was really easy and all you need is recyclables laying around the house and two supply's u can buy.
