The average person produces over 4 pounds of trash every day, and about 1.5 tons of solid waste each year. While some 75% of it is recyclable, we only follow through on about 30 percent.*
So, now that it’s time to do that spring cleaning, our guest says it is the perfect time to go room by room and see what we can “upcycle”. Better still, she’s got advice on how to get the kids involved.
Green living expert and author Sara Snow joins us now.
Good Morning, Sara!
1. Sara, let’s start with the room we spend most of our time in, the kitchen. What can we be recycling there that we may not be doing already?
2. It’s tough to get kids to part with their toys, even when they’re broken, but now there’s a way to recycle them and get our kids excited about helping the planet at the same time, right?
3. What about the living/ family room? What kinds of items can be reused from there?
4. Sara, what about the electronics in our house? When they break or we don’t need them any more we can recycle those as well, can’t we?
5. Where can we get more information?
