The Brainstorm (How can we get NZers to reduce, reuse and recycle?) Ways to encourage reducing, reusing and recycling. Ways to encourage reducing, reusing and recycling. Plan meals and buy only what you need. Use boxes instead of plastic bags when you can. Encourage people to use cloth nappies more often. Give people “No Junk Mail” stickers for their mailboxes. Compost kitchen scraps. Ask city councils to start recycling more kinds of plastics Use junk mail for paper crafts. Buy good quality toys that won’t easily break. Pay people for their recyclable items. Make it easier for companies to use type 1 and 2 plastics. Try to buy things that are packaged in recyclable materials.
The Brick Wall (What can our class do to help?) Instead of throwing our rubbish away, we should try to: reduce the amount of rubbish we make, reuse things whenever we can, recycle where we can. As a class we can: Have one rubbish bin for unrecyclable things, one for things we can recycle, like 1 and 2 plastics, and another bin for paper rubbish. Make a class worm farm for our lunch food scraps. Encourage the class to use paper lunch wrap which can be recycled instead of plastic wrap. Keep paper which is used on only one side for artwork.
