    You are welcome to post any useful ideas to do with reduce, reuse, recycle on this thread to create an ideas scrapbook.

    Suggestions can be to do with either school or home. :) :D :cool:

    Yoghurt pots are always worth holding on to for using as glue containers and paint pots.

    They also make good plant containers.

    Most classrooms already try to recycle scrap paper where possible with recycle containers being provided as well as rubbish bins.
    Ideally try to use paper resourcefully in the first place and encourage everyone else to do the same. Scrap paper drawers for rainy play times are also useful.

    Endless amounts of cardboard boxes can be used for junk models.
    It's just a case of encouraging the children to be creative.

    SHOE BOXES
    Reuse shoe boxes by decorating them with magazine cuttings or similar for unique storage boxes at home.

    Save the tissue paper from inside to take to school for collage activities.

    By the way it's worth saving some old envelopes anyway. They often come in useful.

    I always try to hold on to at least a few envelopes with bubble wrap in them.

    Considering using reclaimed materials in making gifts at the moment.
    Looking for some good ideas...

    It's worth considering starting a compost heap to make use of unwanted vegetable leaves, potato peelings, scraps of waste paper and such like.

    Been busy on the allotment again.
    Bird scarers and vegetable frames can easily be made out of old unwanted materials.
    Cost friendly as well as environmentally friendly !

    Just about to start growing veg plants from seed again.
    I made a point of saving some seeds from last year.
    Yoghurt pots and large pop botttles are worth saving to use in growing.

    There is plenty of opportunity to reuse materials for Christmas cards, decorations and gifts at the moment.

    Washed out plastic milk containers can be cut in half and used, too :)
