  • Did you know it takes a million years for a piece of glass to decompose? Did you know

  • that for every kind of paper we recycle we save seventeen trees on this beautiful earth?

  • And did you know we as Americans throw away two point five million plastic bottles in

  • one hour? Hi, I'm Debbie Noah and I am here to teach you about how to teach your kids

  • about garbage and recycling. One of the important things is be sure that you have taught your

  • children the importance of keeping our earth clean. Young children appreciate that at a

  • very young age, talking about what litter is, how we shouldn't throw things on the earth,

  • how we can pick it up and make a huge difference. And I think the huge thing that we need to

  • teach our kids is that we as one person can make a difference globally. It's not just

  • a problem here, it's a problem everywhere and it's going to be a problem for our future.

  • A good way to talk about garbage and where does it all go is take the kids out to the

  • curb for a little field trip to the garbage truck. And talk about how much garbage is

  • being thrown away and multiply that by the whole neighborhood, multiply that by the state,

  • by the country, by the world. And that is a lot of garbage. They need to understand

  • the importance of we're running out of land for our land fills, and that's where it goes.

  • Also while you're teaching this, talk about what's biodegradable and what's not biodegradable,

  • recyclable, what's not recyclable. This is also a great time to teach your kids about

  • recycling. Recycling is probably the number one thing we can all do to make a huge difference.

  • At your house, give them that responsibility, that they're the recyclers of the house. Have

  • tubs, let them sort it, talk about things that are recyclable. Paper of course, magazines,

  • newspapers, big recyclable, cardboard boxes, those could be sorted in one box. Plastics,

  • of course plastics are a huge issue and they need to be recycled for sure. Aluminum cans,

  • let them be the can crushers, put them in the recycle bin, be responsible, get it out

  • to the curb. And of course glass, if there's little kids you need to be careful with glass.

  • But, those are the kinds of things that they need to know that they're important you've

  • empowered them, you've given them responsibility and they are making a difference in making

  • this world a better place for themselves and for their children and for their grandchildren.

  • One of the really important things along with the recycling is first introduce, reducing,

  • reusing and then recycling, teaching kids to look for things that they can reuse; things

  • like yogurt cups, things that fresh fruit comes in. They can put their crayons in this,

  • use this for a snack cup, a multitude of things that can be reused. And them think about it.

  • This glass jar, it can be reused. This plastic bottle, it can be reused. Those sets which

  • need to be first. Reducing how much we throw away and then ultimately recycling. I'm Debbie

  • Noah and that's how you teach your kids about garbage and recycling.
