Hi Randall and everyone else out there reading Randall's thought-provoking posts! :-)

My wife and I also prevent waste of potentially useful materials by taking recyclable materials such as glass, paper, batteries to drop-off centers where they will later on be recycled.
Being environment-friendly or green has become a new trend in Brazil, and it's certainly helped people become aware of the impact their life style may have on the local environment.
What about you? What do you do to protect the environment?
Best,

Hello, Bruno/Ingrid,

Firstly, congratulations!
You won the olympic of 2016!

Environment-friendly life style is a trend in Japan too.
Basically Japanese people hate the wasteful act - have you ever heard of the word 'mottainai'?- but recently it seemed we lost that mind in the mass-consumption society.
Now we are aware that we need to go back to the basic Japanese.
However, we are used to using disposable products.
Recycling takes us longer time than using disposable things.
I hope that there will be the 'environment-friendly' which all the people can enjoy.

Sorry, my poor English.

Quang/Vietnam,

Hi everyone.
This is my first time here. Just want to say that recyclable to protect environment is more important now day.
I think all of you heard about global climate change. It is very serious.
My country Vietnam has long coast and has many storms every year. No thing can be terrible as the nature angry.

This problem is not for individual but for everyone in the world.

hello my name is marta, studied computer engineering, and in my classes this this blog to practice English II, I find interesting such ejericios to help us stimulate the ear.

know? I also agree with recycling, and I know many people who also like to recycle and care for the environment because the trees did not breathe without oxygen, we can use organic waste as organic matter to the soil is most fertile.

Since I visited Canada I’m aware about recycling and protect the environment.

Unfortunately, in my country (Peru) recycling subject is new, so we don’t have difference between bins to collect materials.

However, there are some companies who try to support recycling activities and taking care the environment buying phone directories, newspaper or plastic bottles.

Hi!
I think recycling is a good form to help the environment. Sometimes I separate cans, cardboard boxes and plastic bottles from the other rubbish because I know they can be recycled. If everyone recycles we would help very positively the environment.

Hi Randall! My name is Gabriel and study the 4 Th semester. To be honest the theme of recycling did not care much, but looking good the situation we are facing because of our own creations, I think that recycling is one of the best ways to help the planet, and ourselves because if we continue so we will end up destroying us.
The school has a class called "ecology" was responsible for collection of certain recyclable materials and other activities that I feel good initiative and I believe that if I agree to adopt the habit of recycling.
Here in Mexico it is very difficult in the houses recycle debris as we find it easier to burn it, throw it away or keep for long periods. However there are people who are dedicated to gather for a living.

Hello Randall our name is Carlos panti and Wilberth Ferrer and about your video, in your opinion about recycling and the ways in than we can help the environment are very interesting; so also in the State of Campeche where we live, we recycle various wastes such as plastic, paper, aluminum, metals and glass, to reduce a little of contamination that exists in the environment, but honestly, the trash not is the only factor that causes pollution around the world, but however we avoid a small portion of pollution, well that's all and we wait some answer of your part about our comment.

Team 6 IV Admon "A" said...

Hi Randall
We are student from Mexico, in our school we have some projects that help the environment.
the materials recycle can be like: newspaper, plastic bottles, plastic bags, aluminum cans, and bateries.
The materials are recycled by us
one our projects is reused the paper to make our notebooks and so we can help the environment avoid trees felling, can't we?

Anonymous said...

Hi Randall, we are a group of students who think that recycling is very important for the world because it is a way to not pollute the environment and prevent the exploitation of natural resources.
We're from Mexico and in our state the people are generally not concerned with the care of the environment and recycling, what should we do to make recycling and environment care are attractive for the people of our state?
Thanks for all.

DREAM TEAM said...

Hello our team is called dream team
and about your video,we think it´s a good idea because you think we need to recycle to save our environment.One way is to reuse the waste that we can benefit such as bags, aluminum, paper and steel.Is a good idea of your part as well avoids a small portion of pollution and keep the world clean.Although not to throw away the main pollutant of the world if there are other factors that cause great pollution.

Equipo 4 IV Semestre Administracion "A" said...

Hello! We are students of the state of Campeche, and we believe that recycling is an essential process that serves to reuse the materials or products that people feel useless. People are unaware of what happens on our planet, and that doing this procedure we reduce the high level of pollution in our day today are suffering for the sake of it. This procedure is very important because many people today do not have the habit of recycling, the lack of information and ignorance.
Some people in our colonies think that recycling is a good option to help the environment, and most of it to help us live better.
Such is the case of a neighbor name Carlos
He is one of the few citizens who reuses some things, the told us that their daily work to reduce pollution is to recycle and do as follows; reused white sheets, separating organic waste from inorganic and pastimes important is to collect plastic bottles from the streets.
The same is done in our school, because in the same projects are performed such that recycling plastic bottles are collected by the students on campus, the batteries are collected by all members of the same order to be taken to a company to reuse them again, and even the teachers prefer students to reuse the leaves of the previous courses.
We conclude that maybe people do not do this process because of lack of information, as it does great harm to the planet and our lives.

4 IV admon A said...

hello

our view is that recycling is a very important process in our community but we are not taking very important and we understand but we do recycle damage to our planet. campeche could say that people consume approximately 14,000 plastic bottles per day and only 6,000 are recycled, some of these people recycle organic and inorganic waste are few who do this work for the planet, Using recycled paper to help much the planet and less trees are cut down, Finally say that there are many ways to keep our planet healthy, But the only way is grasping consciousness and try to use as much as possible what we consume and then recycle it as we're saying ..

The recycling is the process to bring to a subject or a product is used to a cycle of treatment in whole or in order to get a raw material or the new product. It could be defined as commodities from waste and transfer of new life cycle and comes with the prospect The depletion of natural resources, macro-economic and to remove effectively the waste.

For us it is very important to recycle because it helps reduce organic and inorganic waste that pollutes the planet and also save by recycling because we do not buy new things but the reuse

hello
As we know recycling is a process of subjecting a material or a product already used to a cycle of total or partial treatment for a commodity or a new product. We can also be defined as the raw materials from waste, introducing them back into the cycle of life and occurs at the prospect of depletion of natural resources. Recycling is very important because we do not pollute the environment so we can recycle cardboard, plastics, paper. In Campeche there are many places where they are aware of the need to recycle and help our community to have her as a better place to live, to end say that when we recycle it or to our planet and ourselves.

Most people have no awareness of their stuff and better reuse the strips, but there are others who can serve them and gathered up. We believe that recycling should return a must for everyone.

hi.!
today most people are taking even a little awareness for recycling and not wasting so much garbage.
In my town to and few people to recycle and that's good because it starts little by little, the most commonly recycled materials are cardboard, paper, glass and plasticos.Todas people should start to become aware about the care of planet more care for and preserve it.

Anonymous said...

As a team we think of different ways we can recycle, and an example we can take to school that has a program where students help separate the plastic bottles. Also we have garbage cans with instructions to deposit our bottles. Is a good way to help the school and contribute to the ecological culture. Unfortunately we can not do the same everywhere because there are people who still do not understand the big change now is suffering in the world with the vast amount of waste generated daily. This not only affects us, because there are animals and plants that are part of the ecosystem and they are also involved in the process of life.
All materials can be recycled; some are a little more expensive but can be reused. We must know that the plastic takes 100 years to decompose. a way to help is to use alternative energies because they do not generate pollution and maintenance costs are not as high. maybe in Mexico have not been implemented but there are many institutions that want to help and create causes that motivate more young people to enter this amazing world of recycling.
In conclusion, there is still much to do but still can do something that makes a difference

Hello randall My name is maria and am a student of the cetmar and am in fourth semester and think that the recycling is very important with it we help to the planet and it performs supreme importance to learn to recycle to help to our environment and to try to re-use the things and to stop the garbage and to recycle I chat, the glass and the aluminium between other materials that it is possible to recycle, It is very important be aware of ours gesticulate and with it to have more responsibility of the recycling to have a world better that we all enjoy free of pollution

Rosete and OMG said...

Hello, we are a group of high school students from the City of Campeche, in the country of Mexico, with an important opinion about recycling.
In our state, recycling is not very important, because few people do this activity, only people with limited economic resources, collect plastic bottles and sell them.
Another most important thing here in Campeche, is to separate organic waste from inorganic, very few people do this activity.
The garbage truck travels twice a week, people separate their garbage, but the garbage truck is stirring all at the same time what serves to separate the trash if they will not respect the separation.
In our school there are projects to know about recycling, and it worked very effectively the collection of plastic bottles are used every day around 600 plastic bottles between students and teachers of the school.
The plastic bottles are thrown, are recycled in special bags for this type of storage. After collecting, comes a special collects truck to move from the school to recycling center the city.
Another thing that is doing the same way here at school is that teachers previously used paper reused.

Alejandra Yanez said...

Hi Randall! my name is Alejandra, I'm from Mexico a nice place, and fortunately very clean, called Campeche.
We have no deep-rooted culture of recycling, because although it is not justified, we are a very small state that does not cause much waste. From my house jointly cooperate with my family to care for the world we live in that both want and gives us so much, some of our measurements are separate garbage, large bottles and pots of reuse, we save power as much as possible and we very careful with water use. More than recycling, we focus on reuse and reduce. Being such a small place where we live we can not recycle as it is, but apart from our bit at home trying to buy things made with recycled material. In the end no matter how much we do but take good care of our environment right? waiting for the sake of love for our planet unites us, the dialogue remains open to continue sharing ways of making good to the world. and do not forget that somewhere in Mexico have a new friend. See you soon!

sirla andrea said...

hi!
my opinon about the recycling material
the recycling material is the best way to conserve clean the environment.
we should practice the next rules.
1.put the garbage in a can.
2.separate organicand innorganic materials .
3.classificate the material organic implastic ,niylons,paper and cartoons.
if you can do a "compostac" to grow you garden
remember "time is gold"

make good money

Hello Every one My name is Aziz i am from Yemen firstly i would like to thank MR Randall About this great video and about this idea . I loved and still love like this ideas and all that will be useful to save our Environment .And i have simple idea if you can convert it from dream to fact such as if we can suggest to city council and in the beginning we can start in small area in tow or three zones ( AS THE TEST )we will put small trash cans front side of those homes in that tow or three zones and we will ask the local population to put any Paper products (news paper.Books.Magaziens ETC ) in this trash cans and and we as(local valanteers )will collect that twice weekly and we will sale that to the factories to recycle it again then we can find good income then we can help and spend this money in small development projects community like ( lighting streets,paint sidewalks,or help poor people or even Orphanage or infirmary )Thank all of you and here my connect < okmsaz@aol.com > Thank and God bless All of you
