Week 14: Back to School

posted Sep 7, 2013, 9:26 AM by Amanda Yorwerth

Last week we looked a reducing waste from pre-school children. This week we’re moving up an age group to school age children.


·         Involve children in recycling:  Even young children can learn what can and can’t be recycled. Get them to make picture labels for each recycling bin so that they can see what goes in each one

·         Second hand gifts: Give children the option of having the same amount of money spent on them but on second hand gifts so that the money goes further. Start early before second hand becomes un-cool.

·         Use second hand school clothing shops: this enables you to dress your children for less and often provides valuable funds for the school too. Second hand school uniform is particularly good as it never goes out of fashion!
