Reduce, recycle, reuse
On Environment Day in August, the theme revolved around the three "R"s.
"Learning by doing" is the principle behind the ecological education at Escuela Lyoness. For this Environment Day, the kids in the second class looked deeper into the three "R"s and learned how to protect the environment and how recycling works. They then did a great presentation for their school colleagues to explain it all to them.
The best way to protect the environment is to use as little resources as possible. If it's not possible to reduce that, then we should at least re-use the things we use wherever possible. And if that's not possible, the children now know and understand why recycling is so important: because it conserves Resources.
