School Kids Recycling


Learning about sustainability can be overwhelming, especially when the subject has so many different areas.

There are several ways you can teach sustainability. Still, the key is to gradually introduce sustainability by sharing essential information in a digestible format so children can see sustainability as a part of their daily lives.

Writing about sustainability 


Encourage children to write about sustainability to help them absorb the information. You can also encourage them to create a story and include key terms such as reuse, recycle, repurpose or rewear. Introducing creativity to a serious subject, can make it easier to digest the information.



An alternative way to learn about sustainability is by creating a presentation. Some children are visual learners, so displaying the information in a presentation format may be helpful. 


If you are a teacher, you can ask your students to get into small groups to develop a presentation about sustainability and present it to the class. Incorporating group/team presentations can develop social skills and their knowledge of sustainability.


There are many fun and engaging activities that children can participate in to learn about sustainability and develop eco-friendly habits. Here are some examples:

  1. The Five R's: Explain and action the five Rs to young minds so they understand small actions that can impact the planet.

  2. Planting and gardening: Children can learn about growing their own food, composting, and reducing waste by planting and maintaining a garden. They can also learn about the importance of pollinators and ways to create a habitat for them.

  3. Recycling and upcycling: Children can learn about the importance of recycling and reducing waste by creating art projects from recyclable materials. They can also repurpose old items to create new and useful things.

  4. Cooking and healthy eating: Children can learn about sustainable food practices and healthy eating habits by cooking meals with locally sourced, organic, and seasonal ingredients.

  5. Energy conservation: Children can learn about energy conservation by participating in activities such as turning off lights when leaving a room, unplugging devices when not in use, and using natural light instead of artificial light whenever possible.

  6. Water conservation: Children can learn about the importance of water conservation by participating in activities such as turning off faucets when brushing teeth, taking shorter showers, and collecting rainwater for watering plants.
