Welcome to the Kids Corner!


Dont litter and remind your friends to do the same. Keeping your neighborhood clean will make it a nicer, safer place to live and play.

Dont Waste our Resources

Water
  • Turn off water while brushing your teeth.

  • Use dishwasher and washing machine only when full.
  • Take quick showers.


    Energy
  • Have your parents turn down heat to 68 degrees or below.
  • Wear sweaters.
  • Turn off lights, TVs and video games when you arent using them.
  • READ!!!


    Oil/Gas
  • Ask your parents to arrange carpools for school and other activities.
  • Walk when you can.
  • Take the bus.


    Back to School
  • Take your lunch in a reusable lunch box, or cloth bag instead of paper bags.
  • Recycle any packaging in your lunch box.
  • Pack a cloth napkin instead of paper one. You can reuse it! Just count all your school days...that's how many paper napkins you saved.
  • Cover your books in recycled paper bags or wrap...decorate them yourself, they could look fun and you might start a trend!
  • Use up last years school supplies before you buy new ones.
  • Use the reverse side of scrap paper for your first drafts of writing, art and math projects.

    REDUCE * REUSE * RECYCLE
    These are good words to remember at home, school and at play!



    REDUCE
    The amount of garbage from your family:

  • Use cloth shopping bags or recycle paper or plastic bags.
  • Use both sides of paper.
  • Take care of your toys! Broken toys become trash.
  • Recycle bottles, cans, plastic and paper.
  • Think of creative and fun ways to reuse items.

    REUSE
  • Anytime you use something over and over again, you are saving our resources and helping to keep our Earth green:

  • Empty cereal boxes can be turned into great storage boxes---just cut and decorate!
  • Empty glass jars are great for storing small items.


    RECYCLE
  • It allows us to make new products from old ones.
  • FACT-Recycling one soda can saves enough energy to run your TV for 3 hours!
  • FACT- Recycling a stack of newspapers 10 feet tall saves one whole tree!
