As a family we recycle, use our own DIY Eco cleaning products and upcycle where we can, However, I feel it is still key that we set aside this one day to focus on our Earth, our environment and how we can impact it. Using recycled materials in our crafts and activities is one of those ways. Not only are we reusing them, but we are also repurposing them to bring joy.

What using recycled Materials teaches our Children

Encouraging children to recycle is a way of teaching them about sustainability. Learning the importance of being sustainable shows them that the environment is important. It also helps create responsible adults, however, reusing materials that are in the recycling bin encourages children to think about how they can reuse and repurpose something that would go in the bin. It teaches them creativity, to think outside the recycling bin and learn that the recycling bin is not just an another garbage bin.
