  Reduce, reuse, and recycle!
Updated 13 November 2003, 15.17

Sara thinks we should all make up our minds to start recycling now.

Here she explains how different objects can be given another use, and how we can all do it.

"Reduce, reuse, and recycle! One of my more important goals in life is to get this message out to everyone.

Rain forest

RECYCLE! It saves trees, and as some people already know, about 75% of our rainforests have already been cut down. This can kill lots of animals as the rainforest is their home.

Our friendly trees

Trees also have many uses, for example, they produce oxygen, shade you, and prevent erosion.

You could also help by planting trees as well.

Things to recycle

Other things that can be recycled are glass, aluminium (like fizzy drinks cans), and even clothes can be given away, and therefore recycled!

More things that can be recycled can be found on the internet.

Be creative

Invent your own unique way to reduce, reuse, and recycle! My mom, for example, uses cloth bags rather than plastic or paper bags at the supermarket.

Please, at least make an effort to save our lovely world, or it could be too late."

Sara, 12, California
