PEOPLE LOVE TO RECYCLE
Design by Ridge St. School student based on recycling triangle, symbol of recycling

RECYCLE SONG

and trying to believe,
That when I’m
all grown up
the earth will have

Unless we all recycle,
reuse and never waste
The earth will be an empty, dirty place.

“MY NO TRASH LUNCH”
I will use a re-usable lunch box that I will bring to school everyday. I will put all my food in re-usable containers. I will bring a cloth napkin from home that I will wash and use again and again. I will bring silverware from home that I will wash and use again. I will pack just enough food to fill me up. I will not pack too much so nothing goes to waste.
