Keep Kingwood Green’s Recycling Resolutions
February 9, 2014 by
It might be a little late for making a New Year resolutions now, but if they are sure to bring in some good changes, it is never too late. At least that is what Keep Kingwood Green believes. This non profit organization has been trying its best to keep the community clean by recycling and creating awareness about the same.
Recycling Resolutions of the Organization
Its first resolution is to educate people about single-stream recycling. This means that all the residents living near Lake Houston area need to recycle almost everything that they can, right from plastic, aluminum, paper, glass, cardboard to aluminum. Based on an average, if any neighborhood of around 500 homes in US practice single-stream recycling, an approximate of 30 tons of recyclable resources can be saved from being dumped in the landfills.
Another resolution of the organization is to request schools of the area to teach children about the importance of recycling and how they can help in protecting precious natural resources by recycling. Another of its resolution, on the same lines, is to encourage students to opt for waste-free lunches or to go for lunch kits, utensils and containers brought from home, as they can be reused every day. It also plans on educating the students about Styrofoam, which cannot be recycled. One simple thing that students can do is dump vegetable and fruit scraps in the compost bins as this trash can prove useful for composting.
The organization also wants to publicize that Kingwood is among the three places of City of Houston that recycle electronics on a monthly basis. The first Sunday of every month is dedicated for this cause. Residents can bring in their electronics for recycling at the Kingwood Metro Park and Ride from nine in the morning to three afternoon. Most people do not understand what to do with their electronics that don’t work anymore. Now you have a solution for that problem.
Recycling Resolutions When You Start Using Wholesale Reusable Bags
One simple thing that all the residents of Kingwood can do is use wholesale reusable bags. It may seem like a small practice, but can go a long way in reducing the amount of plastic litter generated in Houston. In fact it is more of a habit, one simple habit that can save the landfill space, keep the streets, parks and waterways clean as well as help saving marine animals.
