Tips to Use Less Plastic

  1. Stop using plastic straws, even in restaurants. If a straw is a must, purchase a reusable stainless steel or glass straw.
  2. Use a reusable produce bag. A single plastic bag can take 1,000 years to degrade. Purchase or make your own reusable produce bag and be sure to wash them often.
  3. Give up gum. Gum is made of synthetic rubber, aka plastic.
  4. Buy boxes instead of bottles. Often, products like laundry detergent come in cardboard which is more easily recycled than plastic.
  5. Purchase food, like cereal, pasta, and rice from bulk bins and fill a reusable bag or container. You save money and unnecessary packaging.
  6. Reuse containers for storing leftovers or shopping in bulk.
  7. Use a reusable bottle or mug for your beverages, even when ordering from a to-go shop.
  8. Use matches instead of disposable plastic lighters or invest in a refillable metal lighter.
  9. Avoid buying frozen foods because their packaging is mostly plastic. Even those that appear to be cardboard are coated in a thin layer of plastic. Plus you’ll be eating fewer processed foods!
  10. Don’t use plasticware at home and be sure to request restaurants to not pack them in your take out box.
  11. Ask your local grocer to take your plastic containers (for berries, tomatoes, etc.) back. If you shop at a famers market they can refill it for you.
  12. The EPA estimates that 7.6 billion pounds of of disposable diapers are discarded in the US each year. Use cloth diapers to reduce your baby’s carbon footprint and save money.
  13. Make fresh squeezed juice or eat fruit instead of buying juice in plastic bottles. It’s healthier and better for the environment.
  14. Make your own cleaning products that will be less toxic and eliminate the need for multiple plastic bottles of cleaner.
  15. Pack your lunch in reusable containers or bags. Also, opt for fresh fruits and veggies and bulk items instead of products that come in single serving cups.
  16. Use a razor with replacable blades instead of a disposable razor.

All About Cars

Hi have you ever seen a car moving  and thought how?Today I will tell you how.

Cars move on gas sometimes. Cars go out gas if you still have some go to the closest gas station.Try not to use that much gas  because it’s  not good to our planet. Every car has engine, which moves the car wheels like a fan. Some cars work on electricity and some work on gas.

Features

Wheels every car has four wheels no matter any number of seats because four wheels can stable a car . A cars wheels are round because  they  will help the car be stable and  help the car be smooth  if the wheels where a square  it would be very bumpy.Wheels are made out of tire.

Windows  help you see if there are cars by you  so if you want to move back  or if cars din’t have windows you might crash into someone . Lots of  cars have four main windows  two side windows and one window to what’s in front  and one window to see what’s in the back some have less. It doesn’t   matters  how big  it is  windows  can be in any shape  or size. Windows are made out of glass

Doors help you get in and out.  when you get in the car close the door or like slam the door so on your way there the door  won’t open doors can be in any shapes  but they have to fit a person  doors are made out of metal.

Car lights help you see at night time .If there is  a car so you won’t crash into them. Lots of cars  have two lights in the front an two lights in the back .Car lights are made out of lights  the people  who make  cars put the   lights  in the car

why do people use cars?

because you need to get around image if everyone was walking. What if you were at Madison  and if you had to go to Chicago your feet would get tired.Cars help people go places before their was no cars so people had to  not leave their town if they wanted to their feet would hurt a lot I mean a lot

where can cars go?

Most cars move on roads. Did you know that  some cars can move on grass?When the grass has snow most cars stay on the road in spring and summer some cars go  on the  grass. Only if there is no bumps if there was bumps you would end up in a car accident because the bumps are blocking the path to go smooth so you go up down fall(be in a car accident)

car timeline

cars have  time lines in the future there will be flying and automatic cars

 the first car was made by Karl Benz

Hope you know a lot about cars

The Ozone Layer

                                                               THE OZONE LAYER

 The ozone layer is a big life saver for earth.Ozone is a form of oxygen and is pale blue.Some people even say that it smells like garlic or seaweed.It surrounds the earth’s atmosphere and is formed naturally,You can even call it the sunscreen of earth because it protects earth from ultraviolet rays or UV radiation.It also helps prevent any diseases,and helps keep the ecosystems of earth in balance also this topic is like a big chain or necklace,if one part of the chain breaks then all the beads come of and we are left with nothing.That is why the Ozone Layer is a big life saver for us.
                                       WHY IS THE OZONE LAYER A CONCERN ?

 The thinning Ozone Layer is a concern for humans because human are polluting the air which is depleting the Ozone layer and because of that the harmful ultraviolet rays come inside the earth and kills plankton which is a food resource for many animals and if uv rays enter earth it will make small plants grow less which is a food resource for herbivores and omnivores.If we don’t take care of our Ozone Layer then there will be a lot of diseases roaming around.The most common disease that can happen is skin cancer. Human can die because the ozone layer is not strong enough due to pollution.Everything is linked together.That is why we need to take care of our superhero.

How you can make the world a better place

There are many things you do every day that might be very bad for the enviroment.

One of these things is when you use straws. You probably use straws every day or even at restaurants. The reason this is not good is because in the dump pile (where all the trash goes) some stuff will fly away. If any kind of plastic flys away, it is likely that animals will try to eat it. Millions of animals are killed every year just because of the plastic.

Another way to use less plastic is to get your own shopping bag and reuse it instead of getting a new plastic bag at the store.

You know when you get plastic cups and stuff thats not very good.  We just use empty jam glasses and now our whole cabinet with the glasses is filled with those and thats what we drink from. Another thing is milk containers. A lot of people take plastic containers. It’s better to use glass or even cardboard would be good.

Also styrofoam can be bad. At lunch you probably use styrofoam trays, well don’t you think you should get reusable trays so you don’t throw them away everytime you use them?

I hope this will encourage you to use less plastic in your everyday life.

We want the world to be a good place for humans and animals.

Horse’s behavior meanings

If horses put their ears back it probably means that they are angry. If you notice that their ears are back make sure to put your hand out and see if they try to bite. If they did, don’t touch them in the face and don’t bother them.

While riding, you may notice the horse slowing down and turning their head toward your foot, that means that you are kicking on their sides too much. If that happens just kick less and they should start to be better.

I hope this will help with your horse ridng (if you ride)

The way it works is firs it rains which is called precipitation then it get`s soaked into the ground and that is called infiltration after that because of he sun’s heat the water get’s sucked into the sky and that is called evaporation after that it get’s sucked into the clouds and stays their for a while until it can’t take any more pressure that is called condensation. Then it starts all over again and that’s why we call it the water cycle.

Mythical stories of the moon

Lot’s of people tell stories of how the moon is. Some of them are based on what the moon looks like or the different shapes the moon makes everyday. One of them is where a rabbit said to god that it never sees it’s shadow. So god decides to put the rabbit’s shadow on the moon.If you pay attention to the moon you ill see a rabbit or you can see jack and Jill with a pail. Another mythical story is The moon god playing a trick on Lord ganesha by laughing at him when he falls of the vehicle he rides which is a rat.Then he catches the snake that the moon god send at him and ties it around his waist.Lord Ganesha curses the moon god that the moon will never show again.When the Moon god heard that he asked for forgivness but Lord Ganesha said now that I have cursed you the only thing I can do is everyday it will decrease and increase it’s shape.

Hopefully you learned something new about the moon.

Nature vs. Electronics

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hi, don’t we all love TV,video games,and texting. Well sometimes we all get a little out of hand using electronics we get addicted to it and also don’t stop using it and because we do that their are consequences. I did a little research and with that I got if you use electronics continuously your brain will not work that good and you will talk a little slow and will have thinking problems.

 

Nature is a thing that has no maker. Nature is something we can use instead of all electronics. We can use things nature provides for us and use it to do thing we do with electronics.

The purpose of this article is to inform you to not use electronics a lot and rather spend times with your friends and families.
