Editorial: Saving our Planet
By Joe M., 3rd Grade
Do you like camping, fishing, a simple trip to the beach? Well, that could all be over: pollution might wash up on the beach. Then you think you caught a big one it could really be a tire.
Is it really that hard to put plastic bottles in the recycling bin? No, of course not! You should also use reusable plates, cups, and bowls. Can you imagine living without plastic? Most of our world’s plastic can be reused many times, but if we don’t reuse it we won’t have any more. If we keep throwing recyclable bottles away, our great-great-grandchildren will live on trash! There won’t be any more plants or animals or humans because the pollution messes up the environment. And next time you’re wearing a ski jacket or sitting on a park bench, remember that very well could be recycled plastic.
