recycling

This recycling poem for kids is meant to inspire children to recycle and keep their environment clean.

 

Let’s Recycle

Look around,
there’s so much plastic,
Let’s recycle,
it’s fantastic.

Don’t forget,
about paper and glass,
Recycle together,
with your entire class.

We’ll make sure,
we never litter,
Let’s recycle,
we’re not quitters.

When we place our garbage,
in the right bin,
Both us and nature,
will clearly win.

Thanks for keeping the environment
healthy and clean,
Recycling is fun,
and also quite green.

I think children are excellent ambassadors for recycling. When kids become informed about the need to recycle, they often get involved with lots of conviction. It really shows that they care about the environment and all the living things that use it as their home.

I think sometimes kids understand the importance of recycling and preserving our environment more than us adults. Adults often have conflicting views because many of our decisions are driven by money. Children don’t suffer with this dilemma.

Today, I decided to write an extra poem about the environment for all you wonderful kids out there.

 

Waste and Pollution

We all need to
reduce our waste,
Let’s do it now,
with plenty of haste.

It’s also important,
for us to reuse,
If we’re really lucky,
We’ll be on the news.

Our future,
must be sustainable,
We can do it,
it’s all attainable.

About our environment,
we need to care,
It’s the only one we have,
and we have to share.

Global warming,
and greenhouse gases,
To see the harm,
you don’t need glasses.

As a team,
we’ll reduce pollution,
Caring is
the first solution.

This poem may be for kids, but the message is universal. Kids really do care about the environment. The rest of us just need to catch up and begin caring as well.

Have fun recycling and reducing your environmental impact with your kids.

Recycling Conserves ResourcesRecycle cycle

When we recycle, used materials are converted into new products, reducing the need to consume natural resources. Recycling helps conserve important raw materials and protects natural habitats for the future.

Recycling saves energy

Using recycled materials in the manufacturing process uses considerably less energy than that required for producing new products from raw materials.  More energy is required to extract, refine, transport and process raw materials ready for industry compared with providing industry-ready materials.

Recycling helps protect the environmentRecycle tree

Recycling reduces the need for extracting, refining and processing raw materials all of which create
substantial air and water pollution. As recycling saves energy it also reduces greenhouse gas emissions, which helps to tackle climate change.

Recycling reduces landfill

When we recycle the amount of rubbish sent to landfill sites reduces. There are over 1,500 landfill sites in the UK, and in 2001, these sites produced a quarter of the UK’s emissions of methane, a powerful greenhouse gas.

 

What a lot of rubbish

Most of the rubbish in Britain is sent for landfill or incineration. Because more and more waste is being produced, landfill space is running out. Both landfill and incineration causes environmental damage (although modern incinerators are much improved on those of the past).

The amount of rubbish we throw away is increasing for a number of reasons:

  • new packaging materials and technology are being developed
  • lifestyle changes, for example a greater reliance on convenience/fast food
  • increasing affluence, leading to greater consumption of goods 
  • increasing population

Today’s waste compared to pre-1960s waste contains more products that don’t break down when they’re put in the ground. Packaging waste makes up about a quarter of all the waste you put in your bin; most of this could be recycled.

Here at Imperial College London we are improving our facilities to make it easier to recycle domestic items. We are also streamlining and expanding our other recycling arrangements to incorporate further waste streams.

The 3 Rs: Reduce – Re-use – Recycle

The Three R’s represents the ‘Waste Hierarchy’, which lists the best ways of managing waste from the most to the least desirable. It is a central theme of the European Union waste policy.

Reduce

Not producing waste in the first place is the obvious solution and we can all play a part by thinking about how and why we produce waste. There are many examples of how you can reduce waste:

  • When shopping, choose products that have little or no packaging
  • Avoid throwaway items such as disposable cups, cutlery, cameras and batteries etc
  • Mend broken appliances instead of replacing them

Reuse

Many of the things we currently throw away could be reused again and again with just a little thought and imagination. Examples are:

  • Pass on magazines and books to friends, hospitals and others
  • Give unwanted clothing, furniture and household goods to charitable organisations
  • Buy a battery charger and re-charge and re-use batteries

Recycle

Turns materials that would otherwise become waste into valuable resources and generates a host of environmental, financial and social benefits. After collection, materials such as glass, metal, plastics and paper are separated and reprocessed into the raw materials they came from.
