Kids Can Save Hundreds and Earth's Resources by Crafting
Recycled Crafts Help Save our Earth from Tons of Trash
January 21, 2013 – Northbrook, IL – According to a study done by the Environmental Protection Agency, each year the average family of four produces more than three tons of waste per year. To reduce the amount of waste your family produces, reusing, reducing, and recycling are recommended.
This waste is not just a number; it has dire consequences. Non-renewable natural resources are used to create the products which people carelessly throw away after one use. Plastics, which are mostly made from petroleum, make up 12% of our waste. DoSomething.org reports that every hour 25,000,000 water bottles are thrown away by Americans. The Waste Reduction Program from Fort Lewis University explains that, "Waste is not just created when consumers throw items away. Throughout the life cycle of a product...waste is generated. Reusing items...decreases waste." When you do not reuse, you are quickly depleting Earth's supply of non-renewable resources.
Strip away all of these numbers and you're left with the bare bones facts that humans are killing the planet and their budgets by not going green. There is a simple solution to this frightening issue, and kids can play a big role in it. Reuse as much as possible. Not only will this help the Earth, it will help your family's stash of cash. By using recycled materials to craft, your family can save hundreds. According to the Craft and Hobby Association, each crafting family spends an average of $123 per year on crafts, which you can easily reduce by reusing household items as your materials. AllFreeKidsCrafts.com has collected the best of the recycled crafts to help you save your money and your planet.
