It is time we start talking to our kids about the mounting problem of waste. The average American creates nearly 5 pounds of waste a day and if we continue at this pace it is estimated that our landfills will be full within two generations, which means it will happen in their lifetime.
When we consider that up to 75% of waste that lands up in the bin could have been recycled but only about 30% is actually being recycled, we obviously have to do better at recycling. The amount of recyclable waste being dumped has a direct impact on how much harm is being caused to our environment. If we want to save the planet, we must start talking about green waste management.
Teaching kids about green waste management will ensure they understand the importance it plays in preserving our environment and will make them aware that they can play an active role. If they are taught from an early age to be cognizant of the importance of green waste management, they will carry through with these habits for the rest of their lives.
The more our children understand green waste management and actually physically get involved in recycling, the more we can be assured that our world will be in safer hands.
They must be taught the importance of what they are doing and why it is so crucial to the survival of the planet. They need to understand exactly how and why recycling is so important, and that it involves more than just throwing a plastic bottle in the bin. Once they are aware of their environment and the impact their behaviour in relation to waste has, they will be more willing to get involved in reducing, reusing, and recycling their trash.
