1. Track Daily Garbage
How much garbage do you throw out in a day? Find the answer to this question with your child and learn how to be more eco-friendly together! Set aside a special bin and collect all your garbage inside for a day. At the end of the day, go through the bin with your kiddo and ask them: is there more or less than you expected? Could any of these items be recycled or reused instead? Then, discuss how you might decrease your daily waste—maybe you could buy certain foods in bulk or make a plan for eating up groceries before they go bad. Learning, discussing, and planning for the future with your child makes a great parent-child activity!
