Remember when you first started to recycle? Remembering to put the recyclable materials in one place and the true trash in another can be challenging for my students.
I teach sixth grade in a rural Tennessee school.
Since recycling is still relatively new to our county, many of my students do not recycle. In fact, many of my students' families still burn their trash! Education is the key to protecting our environment and preserving our planet for the future. Since these students are the future, I need to start with them.
I am requesting one three part recycling container to use in the cafeteria. It will enable my students to clearly see where to put the recyclable items and assist the remainder of the school to participate easily. I am also requesting four two part recycling containers to put in various places in the halls of our school. Many of the teachers have small containers in their classrooms for recycling, but when the students are changing classes in the halls, they still tend to toss cans and bottles in the trash cans. Having these new and larger recycling containers clearly labeled in the halls will make it easier for me to educate the students on what goes where!
Recycling is critical to the survival of our planet.
I know it is the first step, and I need to educate my students in this step. Recycling increases their consumption awareness and leads to reusing and then reducing their waste. It has to begin somewhere.
