For almost this entire school year, my 8 year old son, Taylor, has been learning the other set of the Three R's...Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. We have contributed to his class's recycling projects wholeheartedly. From donating bags of recyclable goods to helping him make posters, we have passionately helped him and his class learn more about recycling. Taylor now understands why I have always tried to recycle as much as I can. Sorting the recycling is something he and I now bond over, and the treks to the recycling sites are "our" adventures. Even our volunteering together usually incorporates recycling or an environmental theme!
Recycling is a passion for our whole family. I've been recycling ever since I moved into my first place. My friends then used to laugh at me and call me "hippie". LOL. My friends now ask me for recycling and environmental advice. I'm putting a couple of links that I use all the time to find recycling information.
The EPA and the National Institute of Environmental Health Services also have fun sites for kids to learn more about recycling.
Recycle something with your kids today! Never know how passionate they can get about it!
