Day Tuesday 11th March 2014


 My task is to to help reduce deforestation. The best ways to help are by: 1. Plant a tree. 2. Go paperless. 3. Recycle and buy recycled products. 4. Eat vegetarian meals as often as possible. Trees are really important to us and other animals. Trees breath in carbon dioxide (co2) and breath out oxygen, which we, humans, breath in and co2 which we breath out. Consequently, we really need trees in order to survive.    

So the next time you chop or see someone chop down a tree, plant a new one. "If you thinking terms of a year, plant a seed; if in terms of ten years, plant tree; if in terms of 100 years, teach the people."   Confucius. "God has cared for these trees, saved them from drought,disease, avalanches, and a thousand tempests and floods. But he cannot save them from fools."    John Muir.

Plant new seeds into the ground by burying it in your background or front lawn. By doing that your giving us more oxygen and the the trees co2.

Day 4 Monday 10th March  2014


My task is to pick up any rubbish from the ground and into the nearest rubbish or recycling bin. By picking up rubbish you can help keep pollution down. If you see an empty packet of chips float past you and you don't pick it up it may float into the water and a fish or marine animal might eat it and get very ill. If deforestation continues Earth could end up looking like Mars, without water, without air and without life.

So the next time you see a piece of an empty chips packet remember to pick it up and be roll model to everyone around you and to who threw it. Littering is really awful for the environment and our earth. Trash and other waste interfere with our air to cause pollution and then acid rain which burns down our lovely trees and all our freshwater.     

What next how can we help deforestation by not cutting forest and turning them into cities. When people cut down trees plant new ones in there place.

Day 3 Saturday 8th March  2014 


 My task is to recycle rubbish such as aluminium, glass, paper and plastic. 24 million tonnes of aluminium is produced annually, and 51,000 tonnes of which ends up as packaging in the United Kingdom. Aluminium cans can be recycled and ready to use in just 6 weeks. The largest glass incinerator produces over 1 million glass bottles and jars per day. The glass that is thrown away into the landfills will never rot and decompose. Recycled paper produces 73% less air pollution then if it was made from raw materials. It takes 24 trees to make 1 tonne of newspaper. Most families in the world throw away about 40 kilograms of plastic per year which otherwise be recycled. Plastic can take about 500 years to rot and decompose.     

 Well the next time you put you drink your fizzy drink remember to put it in the recycling bin and not the rubbish bin. As you can see above plastic takes 500 years to decompose and 500 years is a long time until then the pollution will rise and rise so you better start thinking now before it's too late. 

Recycle aluminium, glass, paper and plastic. Pick up any rubbish on the ground and put it in the nearest rubbish bin, however, if it is aluminium, glass, paper or plastic put it in the nearest recycling bin or worm farm compost.

Reducing Rubbish

Day 2 Friday 7th March 2014


My task is to reduce all the rubbish brought from supermarkets like plastic bags. Instead of putting all the groceries into the plastic bags, people should put them into the reusable    grocery bag. Why use a reusable bags? You should use reusable bags because when you come home the plastic bags will always go into the rubbish bin. However, the reusable bags can be used and reused again and again. You can reduce the amount of waste by choosing and thinking what has to be thrown into the rubbish bin or can be used again and again. Plastic bags are really dangerous to animals such as birds. Approximately 1 million sea birds die due to plastic bags and 100,000 marine animals die a year (these are the ones that are found).          

The next time you go to the supermarket remember to bring your reusable bags and you could be helping reduce alot of the rubbish and saving a massive amount of birds and marine animals.         

  Try and recycle rubbish by putting it in the recycle bins at your home or donating clothes and other useful things that you might not need, however, others desperate to have.So there is not that much rubbish and most of it is recycled and made into something else.

Reusing Unwanted Items

Day 1 Thursday 6th March 2014 


 My task is to reuse, reduce and recycle. You can reuse by using old clothes and make them into soft and silky cushion covers or jars and pots that have been cleaned out to make small containers like to put all the stationery in.                                              

We tried to make a small stationery holder with the jars and pots. It was a very good first attempt at making it but we finished. Then we decorated the jar so it looked really superior and colourful.  

My next step is to reduce daily life things such as buying things in smaller packages so less rubbish ends up in the rubbish bin.
