Why Waste? - A Change In Habits
By Mary Perrin
  

1     Reduce the amount of waste in your classroom. Make a goal to form new classroom habits. The new habits you form are geared towards helping the environment. Check out these new habit ideas for reducing the amount of waste in your classroom.
 
2     1) Recycling - Cut back on the amount of trash you throw away. Get a large box or bin. Place the bin next to the garbage can. Throw the papers into the bin instead of throwing the papers in the trash. Take the bin to a recycling center once the bin is full of paper. Many schools earn money for the amount of paper they are able to collect and recycle. Help your school by recycling paper.
 
3     2) Reducing - Reduce the amount of paper you use. Make it a habit to write on both sides of your notebook paper. Also try writing your words smaller so you can fit more on a sheet of paper. The more words you can fit on both sides of your paper, the fewer sheets of paper you will need. Do not write too small though. Others need to be able to read your handwriting.
