It can be difficult to get all our family to remember to keep recycling at home. Here are some reasons why recycling at work can help recycling at home. In the office, it is easier to remember to recycle due to so many posters and different bins to help you remember. To help to recycle at home, if you have children you could get them to draw pictures and put them up on the wall. This way they will remember to recycle more as they have a small reminder in front of them. It also will help them to remember to recycle not just at home but also when at a friend’s house or even at the park.
