Question for D-1 Class: What should people around the world do to help our planet?

Alan said, "Stop using cars. More people should use bicycles and walk.

Crystal said, "People should recycle more.

Michelle said, “Save energy by not using air-conditioners.”

Chris said, “Everyone should plant one tree.”

William said, “Don’t throw garbage into the river.”

Jordan said, “Close some air polluting factories.”

Sean said, “Make a new job called Recycle Man.”

Bruce said, “We should not waste paper, so we can save the trees.”

Neil said, “Don’t waste water.”

Mikey said, “People should use less electricity.”

Jeff said, “Don’t kill animals.”

Oscar said, “Farms should not use pesticides.”

Galant said, “People should use wind energy.”

Wilson said, “Use more solar energy.”

Luke said, “Don’t cut down the trees.”

It seems that these elementary students have the solutions, if the politicians of the world would stop complaining and listen more; perhaps they too would have the solutions rather than be part of the problem. All it takes it one person to care about something because caring is contagious. As Michael Jackson once sang, “Heal the world. Make it a better place, for you and for me and the entire human race.”
