Earth Kids Club: Week 14, 3/20

There is only one Earth and it is our job to take care of it. All over the world on April 22nd, Earth Day, we remember how important it is to take care of our Earth. We need water and energy from the Earth to live, but those resources could run out. We need to help protect our resources so there will be enough for the future.

Today when people say “Going Green” they mean that they will start doing little things to help the Earth. What can we do at school to save resources? How can we start turning our school green? How can we make our school more “green”?

Let’s watch the Peppa Pig episode below. Did you get any ideas? How can we be green at school? What can students do? What can teachers do?

School cafeterias generate a lot of trash. Fortunately, a good portion of it can be recycled, especially when you consider what the kitchen generates. A lot of the items that students bring in their lunches can be recycled as well. The cafeteria is one of the biggest sources of waste in a school. The waste generated ranges from trays and various forms of food packaging, to cardboard boxes and cans from the kitchen, to tons of uneaten food. 

Let’s look at the Interactive Web Sites Recycle City How do its people reduce waste, use less energy, and save money by doing simple things at home, at work, and in their neighborhoods?

What do you think about what this school in NYC did?
