RUBBISH HARVEST DAY|
While going to school, we realized that there was a lot of litter scattered about in the parks, at the bus stops and in public places. We tried to think about what we should do to make our surroundings cleaner. Our class decided to set a good example. We declared a "RUBBISH HARVEST DAY".
The local environmental committee was glad to hear about our plan and provided us with rubber gloves and plastic sacks. We placed an advertisement on cable tv and hung a notice at our school. We wanted our mates to join our action voluntarily. To our great surprise, 142 people gathered rubbish on 22 November 1997. A great deal of rubbish was thrown into the tractors and carried to lay stall.
We considered our action to have educational value. We wanted to warn everybody that thoughtlessly thrown-away rubbish ruins our environment and that living in a clear, managed village gives us a good feeling.
