Recently I talked about being on the Boards of both of our kids’ schools. I was mortified that our son’s Preschool didn’t even recycle.
Well, the Preschool Board is on board! The teachers agreed to implement recycling in the classroom and one of the Moms picked up the curbside recycling receptacles from the city for me. We are good to go! Now all I need to do is get something for the classrooms to collect our recycling before it goes curbside.
Youth is the most critical time for earth-friendly practices to be instilled in our little ones. It’s a great lesson for the kids and a wonderful habit to recycle. Kid recyclers turn into adult recyclers.
And if all goes well, every one of them will go home and hassle their parents to make sure their family is doing the same! Step #1 in “School Challenge” accomplished. Only dozens and dozens of steps to go!!!

"Going green" has always been a part of my daily life. It began, as a little girl, when I helped my mom gather the recyclables and deliver them to a recycling center. It continues today, as a mom myself, when I teach my own children those same responsible virtues.
There are so many more facets of going green in the modern day, and the definition of the term reaches far beyond simple recycling. But going green isn't just about installing solar panels on your rooftop... it's about all the little choices that make the biggest difference. From food choices, to cleaning your home, to saving money on your monthly utility bills and consumption; the choices are vast.
