Greenkus: Haikus for Earth Day

One of the Earth Day activity ideas in our For Teacher section is to write haikus with students. Here are some examples I put together:


inside the landfill
there’s nothing to do but wait
–trash reminiscing


our plastic bottles
buried alive with caps on
dreaming of sunlight


decomposing peel
amongst friends in the compost
with wet wiggling worms


the plastic fork says:
“Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
for the planet—Please!”
