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!!
