Recycling Is All Around You!
Are you ready to make a positive impact on the environment? Recycling at your school is a great place to start! Every part of your school is packed with earth-friendly opportunities to make a difference!
Assess the Scene
Find out what bins are available, and recycle when possible.
Close the Loop
Buy recycled school supplies like cardboard binders or pens made from plastic bottles so fewer new supplies are produced!
Recycle All Used Paper
Recycling one ton of paper saves 15 trees. That’s enough paper to make approximately 670 textbooks.
Compost Leftover Lunches
Encourage your cafeteria to start a composting program—one student can prevent almost 10 lbs of waste from going to the landfill each week!
Put It In the Bin
Put any paper, plastics, aluminum cans, or glass from your lunch in the recycling bin. Every plastic bottle recycled saves enough energy to power a computer for 25 minutes!
Pick Up Litter
Plastic bottles take up to 400 years to decompose in a landfill. Toss them in the recycling bin so they can live a new life!
Recycling one ton of aluminum cans saves 10 cubic yards of landfill space. You’d need 4 pickup trucks to haul all that! Lined up end-to-end, those cans would stretch the length of more than 70 soccer fields!
Simple Acts, Big Impact
Set a new Earth-friendly trend at your school by encouraging students, teachers, and staff to recycle!
