Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

Reduce and reuse is better than recycling (QUARANTINE: DAY 80)

A lesson to learn during this quarantine. We have learned certain things during all this time locked down. We don't have to buy so many things and we can reuse lots of things we would throw away so easily before.

We have to be eco-smart!!!

A listening exercise for you to do - Is the recycling system broken?  (6 Minute English, BBC Learning English) 

Yes, you recycle. But until you start reducing, you're still killing the planet (The Guardian)

  1. Nowadays, the planet, as we all know, is not as good as it was a few years ago. The pollution, the trash, the toxic waste that we throw into the environment... are slowly killing off our ecosystem. Besides, sadly most people do nothing to prevent this. However, there are some things that people do which are good to help with this, such as the triple R: reduce, recycle and reuse. In this report we will focus on recycling.

    On the one hand, recycling is very good. Recycling is a process where the raw materials that make up the materials we use in daily life, such as paper, glass, aluminium or plastic, once they have finished their useful life, are transformed again into new materials. Moreover, if we recycle we will be helping the environment because there will not be so much rubbish thrown away everywhere. In addition, you can recycle yourself at home and spend a good time trying to give a new use to an object you no longer use.

    On the other hand, even though recycling is fine, until you start reducing you are still killing the planet. In addition, we could say that reducing is the key to helping the planet. Fewer toys, fewer clothes... these are things that we can all take on and that are very contributory. Besides, if you don't buy something, you won't have to recycle it in the future.

    To sum up, recycling is a very good thing, but reducing is even better. In my opinion, everyone should try to apply the three R's in their life, so that they can help to take care of the planet and live in a better world.
