Recycling for kids
Why is recycling for kids so important? Today’s younger generation are the ones who are going to be the most affected by the damage we, and previous generations, have inflicted on our environment.
The greenhouse gases and the effects of global warming are taking their toll, so now it is more important than ever to teach effective ways to encourage recycling for kids. Did you know that the 3 arrows in the recycling symbol we use represent the three ‘R’s? Reduce Reuse Recycle; it is more than just a symbol, once kids understand its meaning, it is a constant reminder to RRR wherever possible.

Teaching children about recycling
There are plenty of ways to start teaching children about recycling and how they can live a greener life and make better choices that help our planet. It is important that we start to make a change now so that people living decades after us can still enjoy our world. Teaching children about reducing, re-using and recycling is crucial for future generations. Here at Kids Just Recycle, we want children to understand that by simply recycling their unwanted clothes, plays a huge part in a greener future. By doing this we reduce landfill where clothing is dumped and buried, then produces greenhouse gases adding to global warming. Recycling clothing reduces harmful landfill.
