Recycling is so important to our planet. There are so many things that can be recycled. Plastic bottles, soda cans, paper, glass and batteries are just a few things that can be recycled and help to keep our planet healthy. Can you think of other items that can be recycled? I bet if you were to take a look around, you could find something.

You can pick up some extra cash by bringing in empty cans and bottles to a recycling center. Not only does it help the planet, it helps you, too!

Have any old appliances around the house you're not using? Instead of throwing them away, many charities will take them even if they're not working. This is just the start of how so many items can be recycled.

Earth Day Scavenger Hunt
Weather permitting, have kids go outside and see how much recyclable garbage they can find and pick up. Then, bring the garbage back and sort it into piles. To make this activity fun, see if the kids can create a sculpture from what they've collected.
Plastic Water Bottles
Plastic bottles are very convenient. However, did you know that it takes at least 450 years for a bottle to decompose? Why not look into a "green" alternative instead? A reusable stainless steel one would work.

Earth Day for Kids - Remember to Turn Out the Lights.
There are many simple ways to save energy. Turn out the light when you leave the room. Done watching TV? Don't forget to turn it off. Try not to keep the refrigerator door open for too long.
Cut down on the amount of hot water you're using in the shower either by taking a quicker shower, or by taking a shower at a lower temperature.If the weather is warm, how about hanging your clothes up to dry instead of using the dryer? (In the old days, this is how people dried their clothes all the time.)
