I just did an interview with the Toronto Sun! It will be in the newspaper next week! One of the questions she asked me was, “Why are you so passionate about eco issues?” I thought a lot about this and want to share my answer with everybody. Here it is:
When I was a kid my favourite place was the zoo, and it still is. I’m going to zoo camp next week and I know it will be so fun! (I’ll post about it next week) At the zoo I was taught about how the animals relied on humans to help the environment. I wanted to help animals survive and make them have the best life because I love animals so much. I started learning about what we can do to help save the animals and the environment at the same time, and I learned learned about the 3 main rule: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. The animals aren’t the ones polluting and littering – humans are. The animals can’t recycle and can’t clean up – we can and we have to make the world better for them and us.
Last year in school I was on the Eco Team! We went around to all the classrooms and checked if they sorted their garbage the right way. It was really fun! We also had a assembly where the Eco Team held up items that were from the green bin, blue bin and garbage. We picked people from the students in the audience to put that item in the right bin and it taught them what item goes in which bin. The Eco Team made recycling fun! I really liked being on the Eco Team and helping my friends learn why and how to recycle. Now I’m doing that with my blog.
In June I started my blog for the same reason. I wanted to teach everyone about environment. On my blog I give tips that are easy to do at home and school. Through my blog I show passion, concern and tips and I hope that people will be inspired enough to do little things to help the environment. All the little things that people do add up and help save the environment.
Thanks for reading and if you have good tips on what we can all do to take care of our environment, please share it with me.
