Help me give my students tools for recycling/zero Waste Management. By applying what they have learned in Environmental Science lessons, applying the 7R's of Waste Management (reuse, repurpose, rot, repair, return, refill and refuse) they can save nature.
I love my environemntal Science students since they are so excited to share with their friends, parents, and community what they have learned in their Science class. Recently, they have made a thorough research of what needs to be done to improve the JHS community about managing wastes and saving the environment. They made posters, brochures, and presented in class and proposed that our community must have a bin that can separate plastics from metal, papers, glass, and food.
My Environmental Science students are eager to apply what they have learned in their class especially about Zero Waste Management. By using 7R's (reuse, repurpose, rot, repair, return, refill and refuse), they can practice their skills of helping make the environment clean.
By using the recyclable bins in each Environmental Science classrooms and other appropriate school places, students at school can throw their garbage at the appropriate bags so other wastes can be REUSED such as water bottles, papers, etc.
REPURPOSE takes reuse to a new level by adding do-it-yourself skills to the mix. The same plastic water bottle that can be refilled with tap water can be crafted into a music shaker, bird feeder or other useful items. An old vintage school desk could be repainted and used as a child’s home study desk, while a rusty rake head can be hung upside down to display wine glasses. Repurposing is sometimes called “upcycling” since the materials are not broken down to be recycled but rather are being added to for a better use so those water bottles thrown in the recycled bag can be used again. ROT takes advantage of nature’s natural decomposition process to manage organic resources like food scraps, dead leaves, tree limbs and grass clippings. By using the requested material such as the garbage clippers, students can help pick up food scraps, dead leaves, tree limbs and other waste that can be rot. As these materials decompose in a controlled environment they create compost, a beneficial soil amendment that can improve gardens and the quality of soil in general. Agricultural Science teacher as also teaching environmental science can make compost “black gold” since it helps plants retain moisture and gives them beneficial nutrients. REFILL is similar to reuse because we’re encouraged to use containers again.
