Hi, it’s Mia from Solomon Schecter in Marlboro. This week we are learning in class about the three “r”s and we learned that reduce is more effective over recycle because in general we are not requiered to use new resources and energy. Although reduce reduce is very effective, we still need to recycle so the waste materials do not end up in landfills and maximize tthe usage usage of existing raw materials. In our schoool, we bins for recycling papers, bottles, and trash, and we are really trying to keep the school green.
We were also very excited having a Tu Bishvat program with Jonathan from Eco-Connection. We made friendship bracelets and planted seeds in terrariums. It was really fun!
