Yeah, or instead of binning rubbish, make stuff with it.

That's a very good idea actually. I know some friends that make art with trush.
Once I made a car with coca cola cans. I might take a picture to it if I find the old car xD

I recycle, now the only rubbish we throw out is food rubbish, which isn't much at all, oh and of course things that can't be recycled, like our old telephone. We havn't filled our rubbish bin once since we got the recycling bin, lol!

Haha as we were talking with Blitzar, you could make some figures or shapes with the old telephone, or use the cables for something. Hrmm... there are several pages at the internet that shows you how to make mannual things like the ones I made... maybe you could google it.

Yes it is, you should try it when you have some time to. Or maybe do it in the times you use for being at the computer.

Well... I've reduced the time that I'm on the computer, and use only a little light (or my wind-up flashlight) when I read before going to bed. It's not that much, and I hope I can do more to help the environment.

I also recycle anything that you can recycle, and I write smaller to save paper! Really, when I don't need to use multiple pages for my school writing projects, I actually save a lot of paper. Unless we have to skip lines on notebook paper, I always fill up every line, too.

That's awesome. What I do every two months more less. Is search for all the paper I can in my house. I but them into a gigant garbage bin I have and every two months a paper guy comer to my house and takes all the paper and cardboard we have. That way he can earn some money and in the same way, we recycle.

I'm in the Student Council at my school, and I asked if we could to a playground clean-up- the playground next to the school had trash almost everywhere. We're also going to start recycling in the cafeteria.

In my house, we're also going "flowerful," and have planted many flowers all around the house, font and backyard. :)

Yeah, I just write small for fun sometimes (mad teacher sometimes though XD), but it is a great way to save Earth.

That's great Sienna. I didn't know there were so many interested people in recycling.
Do you have any other ideas that we could use for helping the environment?

One time I found a humming bird struggling under my backyard tree, so I told my mom and dad, but they didn't listen. They listen eventualy when my dog was going to it, but my dad grabbed it and put it under a bush in the frontyard. An hour later It wasn't there and my dad said it flew away.

Yeah I know it amounts to nothing but i'm fond of animals.

I've been going on the computer less. Reading more with just sunlight. Recycling. The usual. (^-^)
