Recycle & Reduce in the Kitchen

What you can do to recycle and reduce in the kitchen

Recycling in the Kitchen

It is important to recycle. Things you can recycle in the kitchen are: glass bottles, plastic bottles, boxes, and more. The products that you recycle become something else so that they can be used again.

Reducing in the Kitchen

It is also important to reduce. Reduce the amount of things you use in the kitchen. For example, use less water than you normally would when cooking something in the pot. When you are washing dishes, don't keep the water running. Fill the sink with just enough water to wash the dishes. When rinsing the dishes, only run the water when rinsing that dish and then turn off the water until you are ready to rinse the next one.
