Recycling and Composting

Fauntleroy-recyclingFor many people, an important first step towards caring for God’s creation is to reduce garbage. Many areas in the United States now have extensive recycling programs, and some even compost yard and food waste. Recycling and composting can provide children and others with hands-on opportunities to learn how to be more thoughtful consumers.

Simple Things You Can Do

  • Sign-up for recycling and/or yard waste service from your local utility
  • Compost yard waste in your backyard
  • Compost your food scraps (worm bins are great for families with children)
  • Purchase products made with recycled materials
