Recycling


This isn't the most beautiful photo I've showed on the blog. But it is the sweetest little toilet and the subject is very important. We had a visitor in my classroom talking to the children about the only globe we're having and how important it is to make the right decisions when we buy new things and when the recently "new thing" become garbage. 

The "game" on the floor showed all the choses we have to do before we throw away things. All of us in the classroom got different things like:  mobile, gift wrap, a battery, a t-shirt, juice-package, newspaper..... 

We have  two different bins outside the houses, the brown for food wastes and the green for things that will be burned. The food wastes will become biogas here in our town and will be used for buses and cars. The things in the green bin will go to another town where they burn it and have very good purification of the toxic gases. The heat will warm a lot of houses in that town.

The children were very interested and had so many good questions and opinions.

Hi, Ella! All good to think about in this month of Earth Day. Yes - the only globe we have and we better take care of it. Glad you are teaching them young!

It sounds like you have a good recycling plan in place in your town. Here in our small town it's getting better in that we can recycle most things by taking them in, but a far cry from curbside recycling!

Thanks for stopping by my blog when I have been away for so long.
