Which states do you think are the greenest? The top enviroment-friendly states might surprise you.
The top states are:
All of these states have high recycling rates and a low carbon rate. Colorado rates #13.
There are many different things you can recycle and reuse in everyday life. Some of these are:
Turn old milk cartons into bird feeders. Birds honestly don't care if they have a fancy feeder or one made of a carton. Just cut the milk cartons, hang them, and fill them with seeds for the birds to eat.
Organize with tin cans. You can wash out tin cans and cover them with different colored paper. These cans make great containers for pencils, crayons, paintbrushes, and other art supplies.
Reuse old paper. Use the reverse side of paper for kids' art projects as well as notes for later. You don't have to get rid of paper just because it has words or markings on it, so you can use it for many other things.
