It is crucial to teach our children the importance of recycling and adopting a sustainable lifestyle. Evidence indicates that this generation will have the greatest impact on the environment for the next 50-100 years. Recycling reduces the amount of resources we consume and helps to remove toxic materials from production. Valuable resources are being wasted in landfills and large amounts of greenhouse gases are being produced as these landfills decompose.
In our efforts to encourage kids to keep the planet near and dear to their hearts, Zappos LEAF holds an annual Children’s Art Contest. This year, we asked kids to express “why they love recycling” through drawing. Up for grabs was a $50 Zappos.com Gift Card just in time for the holidays!
Zappos LEAF Team awarded 10-year-old Ethan V. a $50 Zappos.com Gift Card for providing us with a phenomenal picture describing why he loves recycling! We also wanted to give a shout out to his entire family, for all three lovely children participated in this year’s contest!
Thank you to all the kids who participated! Comment below and tell us why YOU love recycling!
