Abstract

We are going to gather 12 different households and weigh their initial solid garbage, to see how much garbage they are throwing away. We will teach each family about the three Rs which are Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. After teaching them about the three Rs we are going to give them two weeks to put in practice what they have learned. Whatever family reduces the weight of their garbage the most, will be receiving a prize. After those two weeks and after giving the prize, we will return to see if they have gotten in the habit of reducing their garbage.
