Readymade Contest : The Macgyver Challenge : Prescription Bottles

MacGyver Challenge: Prescription Bottles

{Deadline: September 22, 2008}by Anthony Discenza

Increasingly, stealing a peak into the average American’s medicine cabinet reveals a rainbow galaxy of brightly colored pills nestled in little orange bottles. You name it, we’re taking it, most likely three times a day, before meals. That’s a whole lot of little receptacles piling up, and we’re always on the lookout for unnecessarily disposable objects, especially plastic ones. So while we cannot provide a cure for your high blood pressure, restore your memory, or whisk away your excess cholesterol, we can provide some incentives for you to call upon such non-prescription substances as a little elbow grease and gray matter. Come up with your prescription for the re-use of pill bottles, and the most creative Rx will be featured in the pages of the magazine, winning you eternal glory and a ReadyMade T-shirt, if not a remedy for your acid reflux.

Chronicling my adventures in proving that less is more. I'll learn to refashion/recycle clothes, prepare gourmet meals using as many natural/basic/raw ingredients as possible. I'll learn to spend less, live more, and reclaim those things that are truly valuable in my life.
