GARBAGE AND RECYCLING
Recycle, Reduce, Reuse

Parents or Legal Guardians,
my name is Brittny Madden. I am 14
years old. My fellow classmates and I
are doing a project for EPA. The
project is on ideas we researched. We
wanted to develop a way to protect our environment from harms such as air pollution,
water contamination, littering, etc. My
idea in particular is to compose a newsletter on how to keep our world a
beautiful place to live. The purpose of
my newsletter so to introduce recycling to your child(ren). With this idea in mind, I used a slogan I
when I was in first grade. The Slogan read: Recycle, Reduce Reuse.
for your support,
Recycle, Reduce, Reuse
Hello. My Name is
Brittny. I am 14 years old. I have written a short newsletter on how to
recycle things we use on the day-to-day bases.
Recycle means to use a product continuously.
Reduce in such terms means to reduce the level of waste.
Reuse says it all by itself “reuse the product”.
going to start off by using basic things in our homes, such as, cans, bottles,
paper, etc. With cans and bottles we
can do many things, from selling them to donating cans to societies such as
“Cans For Cancer” or the “Ronald McDonald House”. We can do this by having a food drive at your local Salvation
Army. Ask that the cans are given back
to you or the organization. If the cans
are given back, donate them to “Cans For Cancer” or the “Ronald McDonald
House.” These are both organizations
that help the research of cancer.
paper we can also do many things, such as making your average notebook paper to
your own homemade Kleenx. You can also
use decorative paper around the house to make a kite or a placemat at the
breakfast or dinner table.
You can also recycle you clothes
and shoes by giving them to your local thrift store or by having a garage
sale. At your garage sale or thrift
store you can also sale or donate toys.
This is also another way of recycling.
Now we are at the part where you
get to reduce the amount of junk cluttered under your bed and in your
closet. You can reduce clutter by
donating old things you once valued, away or selling them to you neighbors or
friends. You can also reduce the amount
of old treasured items in your room or space by recycling them. Make them useful to everyone at home,
school, church, etc. You can make new
things by being creative and turning old things to new things. An example of this is taking the stuffing
out of that old teddy bear, and sewing a nice size pillow. Maybe you’d be more interested in using one
of those Gerber jars and put a small plant in it. Another way to reduce clutter is by having your own scavenger
hunt. You could also have your nosy
brother(s) and/or sister(s) look for items they have always wanted.
Other ways t reduce the amount
of waste in your community is to have a “Community Clean-Up”. A community clean-up is just what is
says. It allows everyone to clean up
their share of waste in their area. You
can also do this in a local neighborhood park or community center. If you are a school club, you could use this
idea for school as well.
we get to do the easy part, reuse our products.
that you had your community, neighborhood park, or school clean-up, you can
come up with great ideas on how to reuse some of the things you found.
just that simple. All you have to do is
reuse the item for the same purpose, or reuse for something else.
Thanks for your support,
