2 November - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Thanks (for using less)

In November we give thanks for what we appreciate. This month's activity sheet is full of ways to show our appreciation for the environment by using resources more efficiently. Make it a year round habit to reduce, reuse, recycle!

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Activities

Hint: You can use these activities as ideas for the “Choose your own” activity on the activity sheet if you would like.

Help yourself to seconds!

Show you care for the environment this Thanksgiving by just putting a regular amount on food on your plate instead of piling it up high. You can go back for seconds if you’re still hungry. This way the food you don't take can be eaten by others and won’t be wasted. Have a dinner conversation with your family about other ways to reduce, reuse and recycle this Thanksgiving.

Generosity Harvest

Growing food at home is a great way to reduce the resources used to get food from farms to homes. If you have just harvested a crop at home and now have a glut (more of a food than your family can use or store) talk to your parents about giving the excess to neighbors or a local food bank instead of composting it or throwing it away. Not only will you be reducing waste but you will be building community with your generosity.
