    It makes me so mad to think that people still aren’t trying to help the environment it has gotten bad enough , IF the government really wanted to help with pollution and waste they would have years ago before it is this bad !!

    The Earth is going to turn into a lava ball if we don’t do something. I think we should not use cars or anything that involves fossil fuels.

    I think we should clean our world because it is where we live if our world dies where else will we live this is and our only world we have so we should take care of it so nothing bad happens.

    This planet is trashed enough as it is. If we add any more trash it would start to pollute the seas and the land more than it is. My school has a recycling program. And my six year old sister is worried about recycling. Because of her we have started to recycle on our own house, which would have never thought of doing. So it would help if the whole world would recycle. And special thanks to my school for having the right thought on recycling.
