Learning about responsible waste management is essential for reinforcing the fundamental principals of ‘Reduce, Reuse and Recycle’ that underpin the values of sustainable living. Developing an understanding of what happens to our rubbish establishes a direct connection between our actions and the impact that they have on the planet and promotes sustainable patterns of living. ‘Composting’ introduces children to the benefits of allowing organic waste to decompose naturally, rather than in landfill and outlines the process of setting up and maintaining a compost bin. Similar titles in the Find Out About series include ‘Recycling’ and ‘What Happens To Our Rubbish?’.
