Recently, I went to the Smithsonian Zoo in Washington D.C., where I toured the grounds with my family. While I was there, I noticed many remarkable things. First of all, the trash cans all had messages on them reading, “Are you sure this item cannot be recycled?”
This simple message encourages people to consider whether or not the thing that they were about to throw away could be recycled or not. Conveniently, the zoo has recycling cans right by the trash.
The sign also had another message, “Our trash isn't wasted. Its reused as fuel to generate renewable energy. This shows how much effort the zoo makes to maintain an Eco-friendly approach to connecting people to the environment with not only the stunning animal attractions, but also with the frequent signs to educative us. Here are some of the signs I saw:
