Hi Mary,

Your topic is of such importance today and your reasons sound and convincing!

Do you think writing this post might push you to begin just such a program at your school?

Best,
Lani

I think that you are right about the school having a recycling program because I think that in the world, there are a lot garbages so I think that in every year in each school, there should be a recycling day. Then the world will be not much polluted.

I like your concern about the environment. I couldn't help myself from wincing a little when I read what you wrote about junk-schools. In my opinion, it would be disgusting. I hope you can help improve the recycling in your school! I really liked your blog.

Mary,
This issue is very important and I am so grateful that you are thinking so maturely. I also appreciate your desire to speak out on such topics that others do not even consider anymore. As I read your post, it made me think about and question why my school does not recycle. I have been at my school for five years and out of those five years, we only recycled twice. In those two years, we did not recycle all year. I understand the importance of recycling, but I do not recycle myself. However, I do not litter. Either way it goes, I can do better to help our environment become a better place by recycling. After reading your post, I realized that buying recycled pencils and abstaining from littering are not enough. Does your school have a recycling program? If not, what steps are you willing to take in order to get it started?

Virtuous,
I do have a recycling program at my school. I am a recycler. How about you make a petition about a recycling program?

Mary, I am extremely impressed! Each point you make is well-written, and it is obvious you put much thought into each one. It is truly a tragedy that so few children and adults are unaware of how our environment is being destroyed daily. Your comment about responsibility being the key is the heart of the matter. Many people just don't care. Litter can make or break the appearance of any place as you mentioned in your second paragraph. Also, I'm sure your comment about recycling saving money will get the attention of anyone who reads your post! Who wouldn't want to save money? I appreciated the fact that you not only pointed out that it saves money, but you explained how. Your writing really made me think about how just one person recycling can make a difference. You also mentioned Earth Day. I'm curious. How do you celebrate Earth Day? I know my school plants a tree. What do you do, and could you share any new ideas?

Mary,

I notice that you wrote about recycling. It seems that you share similar environmental concerns with Victoria.

Recycling is a proactive step we can take to protect and repair our environment! Perhaps you could write a persuasive letter to convince the county officials that recycling would be an important program to implement in all the elementary schools. You have the power to make big change!

I have a recycling program. Why don't you make one at your school?

Mary

Lillian,

I think we should have a national recycling month. Do you think so?

Mary

Michael,

I might just do that! Thanks for the wonderful idea. I will ask Victoria and everyone else to help me though!

Cordelia,

Well if you are a recycler we try to wear blue and green to represent the earth but healthier. I use only natural pencils most of the time.

Mary

Lani,

We have a program. I am in it! Do you have any suggestions for the letter I am writing?
