I am going to take this information back to my
community to let them know how different things affect the environment. I am
going to show them my projects and work with the youth. The Youth Advisory
Board which is a program sponsored by the YWCA. They are going to take these
projects home and try them for
themselves and see if they work. Then I will take
the projects to the African Drum Making class which is also a program sponsored
by the YWCA and show the youth there. Lastly I will make a survey to see how
the information affected them and if they will recycle now.
How To Make
Recycled Drawing Paper.
4. any type of screen
– Fill blender 2/3 with
– Tear up a few pieces of paper no bigger than a few inches
– Put pieces of paper in
blender until it is filled close to the top
– Add 1&1/2 tablespoons of glue
– Blend until it is a thick pulp
– Put screen in sink
– Pour pulp on screen until a comfortable layer is formed
– Set it outside until dry
CONGRATULATIONS! YOU’VE MADE RECYCLED PAPER!
Thousands of trees go to waste each year by trashing reusable
paper. If we recycle we would be saving lots of trees and the animals that live
in them. Millions of animals live in forest areas and jungles that humans have
not discovered yet. If we keep destroying trees which also produce oxygen that
we breathe, we won’t get to see those animals or the other wonders in the
forest and jungles. For instance, plants are now the main source of our
medicine. Who knows what types of cures could be in the forest and jungles that
we are destroying. Many things on this
planet live or die by our choices. It’s time to show our appreciation and how
much we care. It is important that the future can see wildlife first hand, not
having to wonder and use their imagination when reading a book. By doing this
project you have reduced some of the waste in circulation. To find out more you

How To Recycle
1. plastic bottle
– Take bottle and rinse it out, throw away top
– Take scissors and in the middle cut bottle horizontally so that
you can open top
– Fill the bottle 1/4 full of dirt
– Take index finger and insert in middle of dirt
– Drop seed in hole
– Fill hole with dirt until even with sides
– Take the water and water speed until dirt is soaked
– Take tape and tape the seams where you cut the bottle
– Don’t forget to water plant periodically through top
CONGRATULATIONS YOU’VE MADE A GREEN HOUSE!
The earth acts as a giant green house, the ozone layer which is
mostly made up of o3 keeps harmful sun
rays out and most of the heat in. When we use aerosol cans, the chemicals go
into the air and reach the ozone. They break down the o3 and form a free
roaming oxygen. It finds other o3’s and breaks them down too. They can’t become
o3 again so the harmful sun rays are let in and the carbon that is let off on
earth is trapped in the atmosphere collecting more heat than normal. That
raises the temperature and melts glaciers and icebergs which raise the water
levels of the oceans. Recycling is good for the environment.
Did you know if we recycled all the materials we threw away, we
would cut down our waste problems by more than half. By doing this project you
have reduced a percentage in circulation . To find out more you can go to
www.epa.gov or www.bridgingthegap.org/
I did my Environmental Project on Recycling on my
own. I presented it to our Youth
Advisory Board for Community Change for Youth Development. I explained and shown step by step how to recycle
a plastic bottle by cutting it in half and making a planter out of it. Also how to recycle your paper by blending
and straining and so forth. There were
around 10 kids present. They enjoyed
it. I told them how now they could go
and show people and with lots of people doing that cans can cut back on wasting
paper and plastic.
Did this information affect you in any way?
Would you think about recycling for now on?
Will you recycle paper?
Will you recycle plastic?
Will you recycle other materials?
