Recycling is one of the best ways to help the environment these days. Turning old items into new items rather than creating new items from scratch saves energy and resources in the long run. Our resources are limited, so looking at ways to do this is always going to be important!
However, although many people are beginning to realise just how important recycling is, some people are still putting it off. Some people are doing it, but they just aren’t putting their all into it. Here are 3 key tips you can use to make recycling super simple:
Set Up A Bin System
A bin system in your home is going to make it easier for you and your family members to recycle properly. It could even be having a simple tub that you put recyclable items into, ready to take to the recycling bin outside later on.
Make Sure The Kids Are On Board
Teaching kids from an early age what and how to recycle is a must. This will get them into good habits and make your job easier too. Make it a game if possible to encourage them to keep it up!
Know What To Do With Every Item
It’s all well and good knowing to put cardboard and plastics in the recycling bin, but some items can vary. Make sure you do your research so you know what to do with every item. Electronics, for example. You should never simply throw them in the bin. Take a look at the following infographic to figure out what to do with them and why.
Of course you could always make some beautiful art with it (see pic and link above)…be careful though and always get the correct safety advice when recycling gadgets in this way!
Bye for now,
