Recycling is a concept that should be taught to children at a young age to encourage them to live sustainable lives as they grow older. To start, you could teach them how to separate paper, glass, and plastic in your home and putting it in recyclable bins to be picked up by your local waste management company. There are also other ways to teach kids about the three R's: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. You can do something as simple as encouraging children to drink out of reusable water bottles instead of wasting plastic ones again and again. Or you can show children that recycling can be fun by using the recyclable materials to make them into other items with fun crafts and projects. Explore the list of fun and environmentally friendly projects below to help teach children about the responsibility of recycling.
