help the environment by recycling

These days it is recognised that it is important that children know how to help the environment by recycling, and schools do a really good job! Consequently children are often the instigators and policemen of recycling in the home. If they are not, are if you think the children you know need a little nudge in the right direction, you can find plenty of inspiration on our Recycling pages!

Teach kids the three R's:

  • Reduce - reduce the amount of things you buy and use and you will have less to throw away
  • Reuse - keep using the same things as many times as you can
  • Recycle - find new ways to use old things
