Recycling for Kids / How Can Kids Help. This site explains that recycling means taking materials from old discarded items and making other new products from them.

Activity Village. This site offers a load of printables on recycling. ” These days it is recognised that it is important that children know how to help the environment by recycling, and schools do a really good job! Consequently children are often the instigators and policemen of recycling in the home. If they are not, and if you think the children you know need a little nudge in the right direction, you can find plenty of inspiration on our Recycling pages!” (Activity Village) Beware of adverts on this site though, they are rather intrusive!

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. This site is from the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences children’s pages.

Kids Recycling Zone.  A good site making children superheroes –  “Recycling is just so super simple and each time you do it, you get one step closer to being the superhero you are inside. Recycling isn’t going to give you the ability to shoot webs out of your wrist, but it is an easy way to let people know that you are doing your part to save the world!”(Kids Recycling Zone)
