Easy Recycling Activities for Kids
As some area's in Australia start rolling our our new recycling systems in an attempt to reduce waste and encourage more recycling we thought we would send you some free fun printables to help your little ones get use to the new system as well as hopefully help you in some capacity! (Here's to hoping, right?)
As you all are aware, if you have been following My Creative Box for a while we have made so many changes to our products and systems to reduce waste and use more environmentally sustainable products where we can. We are very active in this space and can't wait to continually roll out new things to make a bigger impact.
Our family has been using the new recycling system for about 6 months now and I can definitely say I am shocked about how many things are not able to be recycled and also the amount of food waste we can now add to compost instead of waste. We are continuing to learn though and would love for you to share what you know with us x
Did you know that:
recycling glass saves 75% of the energy needed to create a new glass jar from scratch
the average home uses 6 trees worth of paper every year
recycling one aluminium can saves enough power to run your TV for 3 hours!
This fun free printable will help you talk to your children about recycling. Once you have it printed, colour in all the recyclable materials, cut them out and then sort the pieces into the right recycling bin. For toddlers parent might like to cut out the objects and just encourage a simple sorting activity.
