STOP before you toss stuff in the garbage! Find new ways to use items that regularly end up in landfills. You can personally erase waste!
Trash or treasure? List objects that are thrown in the trash each day. In small groups, brainstorm ways to reuse or recycle items on your lists. Gather clean, recycled, bags, boxes, plastic bottles, and other objects, such as small toys. Identify at least one way to reuse each object or avoid wasting it. Create a 3-D poster with your collection.
Design an ERASE WASTE poster. Title your poster with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils. You could make swatches of color and then erase the words, decorate the letters, and make colorful borders by erasing.
Show how to ERASE WASTE for each of the objects in your display. For example, to stop wasting paper lunch bags, kids could pack lunches in reusable lunch boxes. Cut and fold a mini-sized lunch bag. Make a lunch box out of a small recycled box covered with construction paper. Attach objects to the poster with Crayola School Glue or tape. Write recommendations such as, "Instead of using... pack your lunch in.…"
Fill your poster with your group’s favorite ideas. Air-dry glue before displaying where it will inspire others to ERASE WASTE.
