Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Respect
Reduce To reduce the size, number, or use of something is very important. Each person in the US produces four pounds of trash per day. When we reduce, we use less of something.
Recycle Landfills are full of items that could be recycled. Recycling puts objects through a process that allows them to be used again.
Reuse To reuse means to put into action or service again. Instead of throwing some trash away, people can find new ways to reuse it. Many items are reusable.
Respect Respect means to treat with consideration. We can respect the Earth by using less gasoline, water, and electricity.
Ways to Reduce Use the front and back of your paper. Share paper with a friend. Use antibacterial gel instead of water and paper towels.
Items to Recycle Aluminum cans Paper Tin Glass Plastic
Ways to Reuse Use a clean pizza box as an easel. Make bird feeders out of milk jugs. Compost your lawn clippings and vegetable peels. Pass on clothes you outgrow to siblings and friends.
Ways to Respect Use less gasoline by carpooling, walking, or using public transportation. Use less water by turning it off when brushing your teeth. Use less electricity by turning off lights when you leave a room.
