Earth Day

We celebrated Earth Day over several days last week.  One day we went outside to look at the dumpsters that are available at our school for recycling:

We also had a guest speaker in from the IDEM (Indiana Department of Environmental Management).  She showed us the importance of recycling and how much of a difference it could make:

The pile on the left is the pile of things we recycled and the pile on the right is the pile of trash.  There was also a pile of “organic material” that could be composted (it was all plastic fruits, vegetables, and flowers).  WOW!! What a difference sorting though your trash could make!!
