REUSE       -------- Three brilliant ways that YOU can

RECYCLE             eliminate waste and protect your environment!


This environment needs our help to keep it safe and secure because if we don't then the waste will destroy it, how we choose to handle it is YOUR OWN CHOICE.

It affects our world's environment (your environment too).

The environment is everything around including the air, water, land, plants and man-made things too. Everyone knows by now what the enviroment means to the world and that effective waste management is important.

We need to control the waste we create, hoping it does not harm the environment and our health. It affects us too not just the trees !!!
