How to teach children to recycle
Recycling is the best way to take advantage of the materials used because they create new materials. Recycling is a process that depends on the input of raw materials from millions of people and for this reason remains and will be the best aid for the conservation of the planet for both man and the environment. Recycling waste is a responsibility that we all have with our planet and our children for the future of their quality of life. From the age of three, children can learn to recycle waste at home.
Teach your kids the benefits of recycling
The first thing we must teach them is how to select the garbage and where we should deposit it. The waste can be separated into 5 groups: paper, glass, plastic, food waste, and others more oriented to oil, toys and batteries.
At the beginning, learning must be practical and we must teach them by example, as care and respect for the environment must begin within our homes. Then, this teaching should be in accordance with the recycling and reuse of materials in the school.
It is important to guide the children from a very young age since in the future they will be the main responsible of our planet. To do this, it is necessary to make them understand that recycling exists in order to avoid the destruction of the environment. This explanation can be made through games, dynamics and other activities that encourage children to participate in recycling.
- Educating children to know that
- Recycling helps the planet separating garbage to facilitate recycling.

Recycling helps make our whole environment much cleaner. In this way, it will be possible to enjoy a city and a planet free of pollution. Among its main advantages is the conservation and saving of energy, raw materials and natural resources, as well as the reduction of the volume of waste to be disposed of. It saves energy and prevents pollution caused by the extraction and processing of virgin materials as well as the manufacture of products using virgin materials.
Recycling allows used materials, ie waste to be reused although some cannot be recycled since they are harmful, such as oils paints or glues. Recycling also reduces the need to create spaces for landfills and waste incinerators. Through recycling different ecological economic and social advantages can be obtained:
Recycling reduces the amount of material that goes to landfills. Instead, they become raw materials that will become new high-consumption products.
Recycling is a way to get money in times of crisis. On the one hand, recycling is obtained raw materials that are going to be used by factories and national industries. If recycling does not exist, this raw material should be imported. On the other hand, recycling also benefits economically since it is a way to obtain money since the reusable materials pass directly to the industries and, in this way, can be sold to the consumers like new raw material. The recycling chain directly involves a considerable amount of labor.http://www.childinharmony.com/teach-children-recycle.htmlhttp://www.childinharmony.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/children-to-recycle.jpghttp://www.childinharmony.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/children-to-recycle-150x150.jpgChild Behaviorrecycling activities,recycling for children
