Lily and Lukasz made a recycling bin today while I made dinner. Lily must be learning about recycling in school because she's been impressing upon us the importance of having recycling bins and doing recycling. We assure her we've been recycling for years but she insists on further educating us. She's been showing us how to reuse paper by using both sides and has been prowling around the apartment searching for things to recycle. I showed her the material I had put aside for crafts - toilet paper rolls and bottle lids mostly - and she and Lukasz got busy putting it all in the new recycling bin and then taking it out again to sort it into three piles - boxes, plastic, and cardboard.
