2 30 second Presentation Hey Davies Dragons! Did you know that the U.S. is the number one trash-producing country in the world? Well it is and this means that 5%of the worlds people generate 40%of the worlds waste. Also if you don`t put the trash in the right bin , pollution can start to begin and that’s a bad thing. You can use the 3 R`s to stop pollution. Like the 1st R = Reduce, remember to turn of the lights or your TV when your done using it. The 2nd R=Reuse, Donate old clothes or you can use newspaper as wrapping paper! And finally the 3rd R=Recycle, you can recycle old electronics such as a computer, camera, or an old phone. The 3 R`s are that simple! Take the action!!!!!!

Recycling ½ of the worlds paper saves 1.2 billion acres of forest! 20 billion pounds of plastic are thrown out yearly by Americans. Also, plastic bags or other plastic materials are thrown into the ocean to kill as many of 1,000,000 sea creatures every year. Also, Americans throw away over 25,000,000 plastic beverages bottles every hour! Take the action and recycle to fix that!!!
