Do you have a school recycling program? Tell Sindy about it!
Sindy Blogs About Recycling

October 2, 2007

I bet a lot of you thought I wouldn't follow through with any of the plans I made in my last blog. I haven't been quite as ambitious as I would have liked, but I did start working on my proposal to present to the principal.

My mom's been helping me a bit, just making suggestions on what adults might like to hear. Like, even though we'd be helping the environment, my mom says that the school board is more likely to agree to my project if it will help them save money. I figure that over the course of a month, we'd collect about 20,000 bottles and cans. At five cents a bottle, we'd make like $1,000 a month!

After crunching those numbers, I can't imagine why we haven't been recycling all along. Think of all school dances, uniforms and field trips we could have paid for! Do your schools have recycling programs? Are you involved at all?

Since I've been spending so much time on this proposal, I haven't really had a chance to get down to the beach with Finn. He's been calling to invite me out surfing, but I just really want to get this done. I think I'll take an afternoon off though - Finn probably won't just keep waiting around for me.

Okay. If I want to go surfing and present this proposal this week, I better get to work! Have a great long weekend!

Peace Out,
Sindy

    Do You Recycle?

    • Yeah, everything from bottles to newspapers.
    • Usually, cuz it's good for the environment.
    • Rarely - it's easier to throw it all out in the trash.
    • No, but I'm going to start.

    I'd also shift the blame onto the parents. It's disgusting and appalling to know that parents don't care about their own child's wellbeing.

Her parents didn't tell her do anything with anyone , She did. Her parents isn't involved in this case!!  She's 13. Kids that age base some of their decisions off of what their parents say. Her parents should have told her what's right and what's wrong, which they most likely didn't do since apparently they didn't care.
