Composting for Kids

See Nature’s Recycling Process Inside a Soda Bottle

Did you know that 23 percent of waste in the United States comes from yard trimmings and discarded food? These types of organic materials can be composted to reduce the amount of waste in landfills. One way to explore composting for kids is to build a mini-compost inside of a soda bottle. Once it’s created, you and your children can watch the natural process of composting take place over time.

You can also help your child learn and understand the importance of reducing, reusing, and recycling by reading more on our Resource Hub.
