We started Recycling months back but since we were
learning about the letter R this week,
I tied in a little lesson of recycling too.
Hayden now looks for the 'TRIANGLE' on the bottom of everything
he is about to throw away and will announces if it has a
TRIANGLE on the bottom and we have to put it in the recycle boxes~
I'm soo proud of him!
They both (Lyza and Hayden) already race to throw boxes and
plastic milk jugs into our recycle boxes...I hope some of this
rubs off on them when they get to be adults...we will see!
Carrying the recycle boxes to the car so we can take them to the
recycle drop off (aka our "DUMPY'- the county trash facility)

Hayden helps me load all the recycling into the marked dumpsters
while Lyza Jane supervises from her carseat...hee

Hayden is looking at all the plastic containers that people have recycled~
Good job people!
Recycling all of our junk mail, magazines and paper~
Hayden has to make several trips to this dumpster!


We recycle our cereal & food boxes, toy cardboard boxes
you name it!! It really adds up quickly, you never know how
many things that can be recycled until you start!
We dont buy alot of aluminum cans
but the few we do...WE RECYCLE!!

Most of the time I recycle our glass containers for our house~
I turn spagetti jars into mason drinking glasses...
I also turn jam/jelly and salsa jars into glasses~
sometimes we use them for art projects too.
But ocassionally my cabinets are filled already so
I send the glass to the recycle area shown here~
Hayden helps me place the glass jars on the table carefully
to be recycled and reused again~

Soo here are two websites that are helpful if
you want to teach your children about recycling...
Once you get started its EASY and you feel good about helping the planet!
