Trash, especially litter, can cause lots of problems for animals, humans, and ecosystems as a whole. Every day as we dispose of things like paper, food wrappers, and packaging, we can make choices to limit the amount of trash we produce. 1. Take a look at the template and reflect on some of the choices we have to reduce trash and avoid litter. 2. Fill in the table on the template with an example of each strategy you could try (instead of throwing it in the trash or littering). Use the and tools to describe something in your own life that you could reuse, upcycle, reduce, and recycle. 3. Use the tool to tell us about your creation, and then submit your assignment.
