The three categories of recycling bin included are

Have fun making and creating with these Earth Day crafts with gorgeous blue and green colors just like our Earth.

Make your own recycled bracelet, or recycled glass pencil holder.

Making a change to help our planet is down to all us. When we all do our part, we can make a difference.

Start with the little things: For example, you could start by talking about the recycling bin in your home or classroom. Help your children learn about what happens to the items they bring into your home, and give them a few ideas of how to recycle things that they bring in, such as wrapping paper.

Consider our food: You can also talk to your child about the amount of food that they eat and where it comes from. Show your children where food comes from and where it goes.

Be a good role model: Showing kids how you live can be more effective than telling them, and they can learn from your example.

Do your homework: Make sure you’re using the right products that are safe and will not harm your family and the environment. If you’re working on a school project, encourage your students to use environmentally-friendly products. For example, ask your students to research the resources that went into making the materials they used
