Recycling ideas for secondary schools

Recycling ideas for secondary schools that help to save our planet

Kids Just Recycle are on a mission to help slow down climate change – can you help?

On August 9th , 2021 the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a report that states Climate change is widespread, rapid, and intensifying. The IPCC have a team of scientists who are currently observing changes in the Earth’s climate in every region and across the world and they are observing and recording the changes in our climate.

We have highlighted some of the findings from this new report here, which may help you to understand why it is so important to start recycling on a serious level:

  • Climate change is intensifying the water cycle. This brings more intense rainfall and associated flooding, as well as more intense drought in many regions.
  • Climate change is affecting rainfall patterns. In high latitudes, precipitation is likely to increase, while it is projected to decrease over large parts of the subtropics. Changes to monsoon precipitation are expected, which will vary by region.
  • Coastal areas will see continued sea level rise throughout the 21st century, contributing to more frequent and severe coastal flooding in low-lying areas and coastal erosion. Extreme sea level events that previously occurred once in 100 years could happen every year by the end of this century.
  • Further warming will amplify permafrost thawing, and the loss of seasonal snow cover, melting of glaciers and ice sheets, and loss of summer Arctic sea ice.
  • Changes to the ocean, including warming, more frequent marine heatwaves, ocean acidification, and reduced oxygen levels have been clearly linked to human influence. These changes affect both ocean ecosystems and the people that rely on them, and they will continue throughout at least the rest of this century.
  • For cities, some aspects of climate change may be amplified, including heat (since urban areas are usually warmer than their surroundings), flooding from heavy precipitation events and sea level rise in coastal cities.

Recycling in secondary schools can help

Unfortunately, it’s us humans who have caused climate change to speed up because of the way we live and the carbon dioxide (CO2) we produce is the main driver of climate change. So if you’re looking for great recycling ideas for secondary schools that help to save our planet, we have a couple of brilliant options for you!
