November 15 is America Recycles Day!

KIWI Magazine

Celebrate by teaching the next generation how important it is to reduce, reuse, and recycle. These three ideas were inspired by Deckopedia’s 50 Ways to Go Green by Caroline Chabert and David Turner:

Give them a job. When kids help take care of the compost pile or sort the recycling, they become more aware of your family’s consumption habits.

Transform old into new. Everything from paper to fabric to furniture can be repurposed with some creative thinking. See pinterest.com/kiwimag/eco-crafts for ideas.

Shop smarter. When you’re at the grocery store, have your kids check out the stamp on the bottom of plastic bottles to see which ones are easily recycled. (For more on recycling labels, visit  how2recycle.info.)
