|So What's The Problem?|
There is only so much space on Earth.
And there is way too much trash.
|We bundle up lots of bags of trash each week. Factories, hospitals, and all businesses create tons trash every day. We're running out of land for landfills (garbage dumps).
Some of the trash we make is dangerous. It's called hazardous waste, and disposing of it improperly can hurt the land, the air and the water. These are big Earth problems, but working together, we can solve some of them.
|What's The Answer?|
The answer is you! There are lots of things grownups and kids can do to make less trash and to dispose of it safely. All this will help keep our Earth beautiful and healthy. So we need you to learn the Earth saving lessons in this program and then:
1. Teach your adult friends the same information. Have them sign the form here, then return it to school.
2. Make a “Pollution Solution Power Page” with the phone numbers & web sites of government agencies or other organizations that will help you safely get rid of trash, and put it on your refrigerator.
3. Sign the Kids for Saving Earth® (KSE) Defender of the Planet Award on page 5, and put it up at school or on your wall at home.
4. And if you want to help Earth even more, join KSE Worldwide as a kid or ask your teacher to start a club by filling out the membership form.
