Our planet is slowly crumbling down and our presence is having a negative effect on our environment. The human population is growing exponentially, which means we require more land, more water, more of everything. Our forests have almost disappeared, industries are emitting toxins and ultimately global warming is on the rise. It is our responsibility to help save the planet.
Making your children aware of the easy concepts of reuse, reduce and recycle will help instill in them, from a very young age, awareness towards the deteriorating condition the planet is in.
Reduce- The concept of reduce tells us to lower the number of products we use on a daily basis. For instance, instead of having a shower for 15 minutes, reduce it to 5 minutes in order to save water or even buying products with minimum packaging.
Reuse- The concept of reuse tells us to find a way to use old products in new ways. For instance, instead of throwing away a glass jar, you can save it for storage.
Recycle- The concept of recycle tells us to convert waste and non-usable products into potentially new products. For instance, you can turn an old plastic bottle into a pen holder.
We have given below one Do It Yourself projects, which will help explain the concept of recycle to your kids in an exciting and fun way.
