3 Green and Easy Things Kids Can Do

March 29th, 2010

 

1. CHILL BEFORE YOU FILL

Keep that water bottle in the fridge instead of running tap water until it’s cold. Then before you toss it, check the bottom for its recycle code. If it’s a 1 or 2 chances are that you can put it in one of your curbside recycle bins. Even better, don’t buy bottled water. Buy a filtered pitcher and fill your reusable sports bottle.

 

 2. MAKE YOUR OWN SMOOTHIES

It’s fun and cheap. And it’s even better if you use locally grown fruit from the farmer’s market. So blend up a little ice, a banana,  1 cup of your favorite berry fruit like strawberries or blueberries and 1 cup of yogurt for a delicious and nutritious smoothie that is better than any store-bought version. 

 

3. SMASH THE TRASH

Keeping your trash compact helps reduce the amount in the landfill.
