Here comes Earth Day!
April 18, 2012
It’s right around the corner. That day that reminds us of all the easy things we can do to reduce, reuse and recycle is so close! Earth Day is on Sunday, April 22. Think about all of the things you throw away each day that could be reused, like plastic water bottles. Did you know you can reuse those? You can either fill them with water again, or you can find a craft to use them. Or those things that you can use less of, like water. Just by turning off the faucet while you’re brushing your teeth you can save water. You can also recycle a lot of the things you use every day, which gives them new life because they can be turned into other things. Recycling paper at school or at home can help companies create bags and boxes from recycled paper. That’s a great thing because it means we’re using something more than one time before throwing it away.
Think about your typical day and all of the things you use. Can you think of some things you use or work with that could be reduced, reused or recycled?
Have a great day!
