Hi Carol, Carol Carter 
Thanks so much for your comment. Yes, there definitely looks to be a lot of overlap between us and our ideas. We'd love to speak with you more about it and about how we might be able to contribute to you conference. Being based in Australia, we're not able to get to Colorado for it, but there may be some other way to contribute. Would be very happy to discuss with you further! Thanks again, Joanna

Hi there, thanks for that feedback. My apologies, I didn't realise that it needed to be for a US context. I'll have a read through the toolkit. Regards, Joanna

Thanks so much for this comment Siobhan. It's definitely a valid point and one we'll think about further going forward. Previously, we have kept loose parts materials locked up in a box or cupboard, but the idea that materials are scarce and seen as more beneficial for other purposes is also a valid one. We've found that there are certain materials that are always discarded and can be recycled such as plastic bottles that can be filled with stones and used as rattles for small children. But we'll discuss your thoughts more with our team and get further feedback. Thanks again!
