Title: REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE


1
REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE
By Barry
2
The 3 Rs
  • Reduce Reduce means to cut down on the amount
    of waste being thrown out
  • Reuse Reuse means to use things over and over
    again and find new uses for objects e.g. use a
    water bottle over and over for school!
  • Recycle Recycle means to re-use the item and
    create something else with it.

3
  • The average person throws away 726 kilograms of
    waste each year!
  • The average family throw away the amount equal to
    half a fully grown elephant each year. Doesnt
    sound that bad? Thats equal to 1 . 5 TONS of
    rubbish each year

How Much?

Types of waste
  • There are 2 types of waste, biodegradable and
    non-biodegradable.
  • Biodegradable means its able to rot naturally
    and non-biodegradable cant rot naturally.
  • Examples of biodegradable waste include garden
    and kitchen waste like potato skins and banana
    skins. Newspaper is also biodegradable!

How to STOP!
  • Buy things loose. When youre buying vegetables
    or fruit buy them without the packaging, as this
    produces less waste.
  • Make a compost pile and have a brown bin at home
  • For more info on how to stop waste visit Kids'
    Stuff About Waste Reduction and Recycling ?

6
Plastic Bags
  • 1 of plastic bags are recycled.
  • A few years ago a study showed that 8 million
    pounds of plastic bags are thrown away each year.
  • If you dont recycle them, animals can eat them
    and get stuck in their throat and they will
    suffocate.

7
Cans
  • Last year 4 billion steel cans were recycled in
    the UK. Don't forget that all steel is 100
    recyclable and can be recycled many times without
    losing any quality.

8
Paper
  • 1 ton of recycled paper can save 17 trees!
  • Reuse paper around the home as scrap paper or
    packing material. Envelopes can also be reused.
  • Another good way to reduce paper is to read the
    news online this will stop the massive amount
    of trees being cut down for newspapers alone!

What our school does!
  • In our school we do lots of things to reduce,
    reuse and recycle.
  • We recycle old glass lenses, stamps and mobile
    phones, on top of every thing else like paper,
    cardboard and plastic bottles.
  • We have a compost bin, a breathing area, a green
    house and every class has its own blue bin.
  • We have a garden for birds, rodents, insects and
    more!
  • We even have a newly refurbished our P6 vegetable
    garden!!!
  • Our school runs 3 bus services, cutting down on
    the amount of CO2 we create!
  • We also use our textbooks over and over and over
    again, helping to save trees!
  • We have an eco-schools club run by Ann Hegarty
    and we have 2 green flags!
