Earth Day Printables 3R Sorting

My kids always get curious about these 3R things, especially the reducing part.

One of my kids asked, “Why do we have to reduce the usage of water and electricity, when we can pay for the electricity bill?”

The answer is not about whether we can pay for it or not.

Protect the Earth – It is chains of events

It is because every time we light on the bulb or turning on the tap water, we are burning resources from the earth.

Those resources are such as fossil fuel and coal. To produce electricity and process water, those fossil fuels and coals need to be burned.

But unfortunately, burning them will indirectly release pollution into the air.

Polluted air will make Earth sad.

Air pollution such as acid rain, carbon dioxide, and toxic gases; will thin our atmosphere and make the Earth’s climate a bit hotter.

When the Earth’s temperature is hotter than usual, it will lead to the depleting of glacier and ice at the north pole.

This event will sadly affect other wildlife, such as making the Polar Bear lose its home-because Polar Bear live mainly on ice to hunt for a sea-lion.

This also would flood some parts of the world, such as Italy and Greenland.

Then there are other natural disasters that will follow.

Usually, to discuss this topic, I would bring some Earth books and show some pictures to my kids.
