  1. Hi erica
    You’ve come up with some great ways to reduse, re-use and recycle for your post.
    In my classroom we re-use the back of old worksheets for scrap paper and then put them in the recycling bin so that the paper can be made into paper again!
    We also refill our plastic water bottles so that we don’t throw them out and use new ones.
    Your ideas for reducing water waste are great – we will have to try these too 🙂

    An important question tho – WHY do we need to do these things? Do you think that you can make a difference?



  2. Hey Erica, I love your ideas. We should get together to help promote the Three R’s or something, ahaha. I resuse paper, and I always recycle at school. Keep up the great work!
