Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

In Room14 we are learning about how we can reduce, reuse and recycle our waste. We had a look at what kind of waste we had in our bin and what we found was astonishing.
We sorted out our waste into paper, plastic, food and other waste. From the photo above you can see how much waste we were not RECYCLING! So we grabbed our 'Terracycle' bin and Paper bin and this is what it looked like.
After that we remembered that we had a worm farm at school so we further REDUCED our waste till it finally looked like this.
If this is what we can do with one days worth of rubbish we wonder what we can ALL do around the school and at home over a week, a  month or even a whole year. Imagine the waste we can save. Next we  will be looking at how we can REUSE some of our waste.

Wow, room 14!

What an amazing bunch you all are with reducing and recycling rubbish found in your bin!
I hope you will have further success in learning how to reuse things the next time as well.

Good on you and keep it up!
