In a surprising twist, the Blockheads discovered that the gooey substance created by reducing Styrofoam is actually strong adhesive. We bottled the goo and named it “EcoGlOo.” We sent samples to our school art class, to the senior adults from the retirement community where we did research and to other Girl Scout troops for craft projects.

In our tests – it works better than the leading school glue!!

Invented in 2016 and featured in that year’s White House Science Fair, our solution to reduce waste while sticking things together, better, now has a U.S. Provisional Patent (Application No. 62/578,163). Our thanks to Poisenelli Law Firm for helping us.
