We Need To Recycle!

We have to recycle more for our Earth.

Recycling makes Earth beautiful, and there’s other good ways that recycling helps Earth. Do you know what helps Earth a lot? Here are three reasons.

We can save a lot of money. We won’t have to buy new things to make recyclable resources. When factories make new resources, the air gets polluted. But if we recycle, we won’t have as much polluted air. Recycling’s meaning is similar to the meaning of reusing. We can keep reusing things and save money.

If we don’t recycle, we are wasting recyclable resources! If we keep wasting those resources, there will be no recyclable resources and there will be many trashes on land or landfills because we can’t recycle. But if we recycle, we’re not wasting recyclable resources!

Less recycling means a lot of landfills. If there are so many landfills, the earth will get wasted by all of the trash! But if we don’t  recycle, landfills will get bigger and bigger and there will be more trash on the land. We put big boxes in landfills and landfills get bigger, but if we recycle we will make smaller landfills. If we have so many landfills, there will be no place left for anything!

If we recycle we can save many things. We can save money, resources, and Earth. To shorten that, we will live happier lives if we recycle!

Desert Plant Cactus

Prickly pear cactus

A cactus is an amazing plant in the desert. Cactus lives in the Desert, but it can live in the dry soil, too.

Cactus have little prickly spikes all over, and a green waxy coat. The green coat is a cactus’s skin. In the inside of a cactus, there is water. But you can’t drink cactus water, because cactus water is not clean for drinking. Can you eat cactus fruit? Yes, you can. It shaped like around, little, small like your hand rock, It colored like magenta. The cactus gets fruit every spring.

A prickly pear cactus is a succulment plant. Succulment means many water in there. It has thick fleshy pads. Each pads shaped like a pear. The pads help the plant store water. The pads of the plant are covered with spines. The spines keep animals from eating the fleshy leaves.”

The saguaro cactus grows very slowly. A plant that is fifty years old may just thirteen feet tall. A large saguaro cactus can be woodkeepers and owls home.

A barrel cactus grows faster on its northern, shadier side. This makes the whole cactus curve and point slightly to the south. People in the desert use plant to help them find the right side.

Cactus is amazing plant but is dangerous, because you can hurt from spikes. If you want to go Desert, go with adults!
