Recycling with Kids

Lil Tip: Easy and Fun Chore

In attempting to save the environment, I think it's important to teach wee ones about recycling and other green tips at an early age. If you walk the walk and talk the talk, it will soon be second nature to your youngsters to look for a blue recycle bin or green compost can instead of searching for gnarly silver buckets all the time.

In addition to giving your tot the chore of taking out the trash or doing the dishes, encourage her to keep an eye on the household's recycling. For instance, if she finds an empty bottle of shampoo in the bathroom bin, give her kudos and a star on her chore chart. She'll take pride in her task while helping to save mother nature one Aveda bottle at a time.

Great idea. It's more of a thinking chore than a doing chore, but it gets kids in the right mindset.
