See What Recycling Gets You

When our Editor found her recycling bags overflowing (and regular pickup a week away) she decided to enlist her son for a little assist. Like most kids, he’s naturally helpful and was keen to bring the bottles and cans to a nearby grocery store where a recycling vending machine was waiting for action. They came out with $6.25 (wow!) all of which he got to keep to make a purchase. Check out his sweet compass watch ($3.99) he proudly chose with his own money. (Mom won’t fess up to what happened to the remaining $2.26 but we suspect it went for a coffee).

Are your kiddos into recycling? What kind of fun ways have you come up with to recycle?
