Why we need to encourage recycling in a child's early years.
The skills children learn from recycling will create a sustainable world for them and future generations to live in. They will develop a greater appreciation for the way things work, and a better understanding of our precious ecosystem.
How to start
- Start this learning in the early years of a child's life. If a child is old enough to clear away their own mess and put something in the bin, they're old enough to learn about recycling.
- Buy the right bin, and label it so it is a visual reminder of what items go in it.
- Encourage children to donate cloths and toys to charity stores
