    Reduce
     means to decrease the garbage we create by limiting your purchases and consumption. This is a simple and best way is to reduce waste and thereby eliminate the cause itself. Teaching your little ones the importance of avoiding wastage is the first step in making them understand the concept of “reduce”.
     

    Our Eco-Kids Reduce Guide walks children through information about reducing our carbon footprint. They will learn a few new words, read a poem written about being small but mighty and then dive into all of the activities we have to offer! At the end of the guide, there is a chance for you to review with them what they have learned. If you want to dive deeper into the topic at hand, make sure to check out our recommended books and videos as well. Celebrate Earth Day with this fun guide full of nature-inspired activities!

      Reuse means looking for ways to reuse some of the materials we use for our everyday life, including paper, toys, electronics and any other tools. If we reuse, then we do not have to buy a new item. Consequently, we save energy producing a new one and reduce the overall pollution.

      Your little ones will learn all about how to reuse, repurpose and reorganize in our Eco-Kids Reuse Guide. After learning a few new words, such as repair and upcycling, you'll come across a powerful poem that helps them ponder all the important ways to help save the planet. Next, is an upcycling activity that gets the kids learning simple ways to make such a big difference. We have additional activities for younger ones as well as the older ones depending on your child's age and interest level. Lastly, we have created our own worksheet that helps kids categorize and brainstorm items they can repurpose!

         Recycle means that the things we cannot reuse in their current form have to be recycled. Then, they can be used as raw material to produce a new item that will be useful to us. This way, we waste less and also help our environment.

         Our Eco-Kids Recycle Guide introduces children to recycling and gets them excited about it. They'll learn all about the impact they have on the world, how they can help and so much more. After discovering a few new words and reading a fun poem, they dive into the activities! This guide includes an art project, a science experiment and a chance to learn how to make their own paper! Our worksheet in this guide allows them to put what they've learned to the test by filling out which items get recycled and which do not. At the end of the guide, we have a list of book and video resources that you are bound to love and will continue your kids interest in the 3 R's.

         _______________________________________________________________


        Each of the actions resulting from these simple and yet important 3Rs – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – comes as reinforcement of the others. Together, they have the greatest impact on us improving the state and condition of our natural resources.
