Also check out Minerva's writing about why we should recycle.
Today we visited the recycling centre in Onehunga and enjoyed dressing up! So did our awesome helpers! Here is some fantastic persuasive writing by Sina -
I believe you should recycle to keep earth healthy. It is great to recycle paper and plastic items because you can reuse them to create art. In art we reused paper to make collages.
First of all, if we don’t recycle, our air will be polluted and our environment will be nasty.
Also, our air will be polluted and it will create more gas making it hard to breathe in oxygen.
Secondly, If we don’t recycle, we will have a lot of magazines and litter. We will keep getting more paper and it might kill the animals and plants. The animals might get stuck in the plastic bags or try to eat the rubbish.
Finally…..If you keep glass around then it might get onto the road, the people from the car's might pop their tyre.
So you should reduce, reuse and recycle!!!
I believe we should recycle because if we don’t then our earth will be polluted.
First of all it will create gas in the air to make us sick and can't breath in. The gas could also stop plants from growing if they don’t have enough air to breathe in.
Secondly we can recycle to reuse other stuff in art. We can use old magazines to make artwork and landscapes.
Also it reduces the rubbish in the air and if you throw rubbish to where animals live it can kill our animals.
Lastly if we use plastic bags and you throw them in the sea the sea animals will get stuck in the plastic bags
Finally if you put the plastic in the compost or you take it to the worm farm the worms will die.
So you should REDUCE, REUSE, and RECYCLE!!!!!!!
