Kids Paper Recycling Kit

Sunday, February 20th, 2011


Recycling paper is one of the first steps to going green and now kids can recycle their own in a unique green craft project kit. It comes with all they need to learn the principles of paper recycling and make their own paper from the used paper around the house. They can create some wonderful craft projects as they learn. This is an inexpensive set, and though the principle is green the materials look rather cheap and plastic, not made to last all that long. One comment from a user was that it would be better to use the kitchen blender than the mixer from the kit. But all in all it’s a fun and affordable idea that kids will enjoy and learn from.

Costs $12.97 from Discovery Store.

Worm Factory Composter

If composting seems like too much effort to you, let the worms do the hard work for you. Having your own worm farm means that you can transform your organic kitchen waste effortlessly into rich compost. The worms digest the scraps and soon you have fertile worm casting compost for your plants. This worm factory is made from recycled plastic and has a stackable tray system. As the worms make their way up into the next tray you can empty out the bottom one, now filled with compost, into your garden. This is perfect for small backyards and can even be kept inside an apartment to feed and nurture your pot-plants as there are no odors.
