Ever since I was little, I have tried to help with the environment. That has stuck with me all these years. My little project has been going on for quite a while now. It is a one person project.

First things first; let us go back a few years. When I was in elementary school, I liked to clean up the playgrounds near the end of recess. During my sixth grade year, I created an idea. I went to the principal's office and talked with him. I introduced the idea of a cleanup group at recess. If the principal went along with it, all the students would be required to pick up trash and clean up the playgrounds near the end of every recess. Sadly, my plan was not addressed and it was never developed into an actual project.

I have a habit of picking up trash where ever I am walking. In school, we have recycle bins. In my photo, it is me with a recycle bin. I try to make sure that all papers are recycled instead of just thrown in the trash bin. I do believe that recycling is a very good thing. I think that recycling should be stressed even more in schools.

Where ever I go, I try not to be a litter bug. I pick up trash, I recycle, I make sure things are well put in the area. If I could, I would create an actual group project in my county.

I love the Earth. The Earth needs to be taken care of more. I try to do whatever I can, to make it a cleaner place.
