Recycling for kids


I loved recycling long before it was fashionable to shop in consignment shops. Maybe it's because I was brought up to dislike waste. You know, "One person's trash is another person's treasure," and all that kind of stuff. Maybe it's just because recycling is simply good common sense. I'm convinced starting when our kids are young is the best way to effect change and I'm also a firm believer that it has to something we model for them, as a way of life. Edutopia magazine devotes an entire issue this month to recycling in schools., including this article, "From trash to treasure." Seems like a no-brainer, doesn't it? To marry the values of home and school and keep the world from drowning in trash, all at the same time?
