Activity 4

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Collect different food packaging for a week and sort it into types, depending on what it is made from. Look at the recycling information on the labels; how do you think this will be reused or recycled? Conduct some research to understand more about how our recycled waste is sorted. 

Research how recycled materials are used to make new items or products. What things do you use that are made from recycled materials?

Design a new product that could be made from recycled materials. How will it get made? How will you tell people what the materials will be used for? How will you ensure that its production will be sustainable?
