5 Things to do during National Recycling WeekFebruary 17, 2016
National Recycling Week, to be held from November 7-13, is for the students. They need to learn about the unnecessary wastes of money.
"Many of us can't resist the state of art gadgets which are constantly entering the market. New mobile phones are being released every few months, the latest computers are promoted and the flattening, specialisation and digitisation of TVs is forever encouraging us to upgrade our home entertainment," wrote Sally Ayhan in her article during the campaign two years ago.
"Australians are some of the most rapid adopters of new technology in the world. We buy more than four million computers and three million televisions annually. It's this addiction to technology that has electronic waste growing three times faster than any other waste in the country."
Students don't need to comprehend what Miss Ayhan said. It's better to play some games, as this is the best way to learn a thing or two on recycling. Here are some suggestions:
Play a game. You need to have a waste container in schools. Instead of purchasing it from your nearest store, it will be better to create one. Let your imagination inspire you, and it will be best if it's made up of recycled materials. The exterior can be earthy colours (turquoise, green, brown). There must be illustrations of the sun, trees, and flowers. The rest will be up to you.
Show your best mask. If you're really in the mood to play, then better make a mask from boxes, buttons, and egg cartons. You can also make use of mobile phones that are no longer in use. Show it off when you're done. And don't be embarrassed.
Bring newspapers. Buying newspapers is one of those old habits that won't die soon. Too many newspapers can be an eyesore, so it will be better to bring it to school. It can be used for the waste container or mask. Don't let appearance deceive you, as you'll never know how it turns out. It might be better than you imagine.
Get down and dirty in the garden. Food scraps can be another source of waste, which can cause problems if left unattended. It can be used as compost for vegetables. You also learn how to grow plants. (They can sprout vegetables and fruits, but patience is required.) This is a good opportunity to know more about organic food.
The last one is up to you. It's time to put your creativity to good use.
