Challenge09 #4 – Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle

globe-inside-a-light-bulb-giclee-print-c12351362How do you reduce, reuse and recycle at your home or school?

That  was the question posed to us by the Blog Challenge09, and we intend to answer that question. In January, we had a Recycling Fair at our school. Each class prepared a poster and targeted one way in which we could reduce, reuse, and recyle. Parents were invited and the community has since started a recycling center.

On March 28th @ 8:30 we have another chance to help our planet by taking part in Earth Hour.  We need you to commit to turning off your lights for one hour.

Have you ever wonder just how many lights are used around the entire world?  How much energy could we save if we just turned them off when we are not using them?

Click on the bulb below to take a closer look at all the lights. Then tell me one thing you could plan to do in the dark at 8:30 p.m. Saturday night, March 28th.

  1. We have a “what did you do for Earth Hour?” question on our blog that we are hoping to get people to post to as well (www.mrsheatonsclass1.blogspot.com). I was supposed to walk my dog in our neighborhood with my husband and visit friends to make sure they had their lights out but it was POURING down rain so we tabled that idea. I used my book light to read and my husband and son both (after extensive internet research) decided that Earth Hour did not include computers or tvs – only lights – so they watched tv in the dark. I still think they cheated but it wasn’t worth the argument.

  2. What a fantastic blog guys!! Wow, I’m so impressed that you try to use technology in everything you do! My Grade 2 class is trying to use lots of technology this year too! Hopefully we can check out and comment on each others blogs regularly.
