Recycle, Reuse and Reduce
Do you know the new three Rs? You better, because your kid and the environment is counting on you.
What You Need To Know
“Recycle, Reuse, and Reduce” is the phrase that schools are teaching your kids. To support that environmental curriculum, practice caring for the natural world at home and do so in ways that encourage kids to participate.
How You Can Help
- Recycle. Place a nice looking garbage can with a lid near your main one in the kitchen and use it for paper. Put smaller versions in your kids’ rooms and where they do homework.
- Reuse. Large, plastic cat litter bins can be washed out to carry tennis balls to and from the court. An old blanket might mean teaching your kids how to quilt.
- Reduce. Give your kids permanent cups and mugs to refill with water and sports drinks. Set timers for your kids’ showers, reward the minutes they save and subtract the minutes they go over.
