Our Upcycling Quest by Anshul
Trash really affects our planet. Not just does one world together affect our world but , even just a city or a house in a city. So many things are being thrown away like chip bags, caprisun pouches, and even the unnoticeable items, toilet rolls. Just toilet rolls affect Sacramento in a larger amount that you could imagine. Just the amount of toilet rolls used in Sacramento is about 54 foot ball fields a year , and millions of toilet rolls. This can tell us to be more concerned about the things we don’t notice much. In that fifty four football fields, so much other things can be done to make the people happier. If just toilet rolls can be upcycled so much things will be saved. It can be used in building projects too. You can use one for a holder and there is so many more.
In school we are also trying to upcycle. Some of the things being collected are chip bags, and capri sun pouches. Bethany, Lauren, Mohammad, and Joshua are making bins to collect snack bags and drink pouches. Lauren and Bethany have made two bins already that are in Mrs. Bibayoff's room. They already are filling up. These items are being sent to Terracycle, which is a company that creatively makes other things out of these items and sells them. One of the things being made are capri sun backpacks. If you upcycle you can get some of the things that you can't get anywhere else. Let’s Upcycle!!!
