How much rubbish do you throw away in a year? It could be more than a tonne or less than a hundred kilograms but it's still too much. The Earth is disappearing under a mountain of rubbish - often poisonous - yet, as this book shows, much of this rubbish could be recycled. Recycling can save energy, materials and money - it may also save the Earth.

2. Write the summary of the book.

A lot of people feel that pollution has become one of the biggest problems in the world today. When you pollute something, you make it dirty or dangerous for other people or animals. The main reason for pollution is waste―something which is no longer needed.
Recycling means conserving materials and energy by using things again instead of throwing them away. Recycling is important for three reasons. It reduce pollution. It conserves energy and materials. And it saves money, which can then be sent on other things.
In some countries there are laws about pollution and recycling. Their governments punish people who pollute the environment. Their governments also try to teach people about recycling.

3. Write your feelings about the book in details.

If you live in Los Angeles, you probably throw away twenty-one kilograms of rubbish every week. Every man, woman and child in London throw away six kilograms of rubbish every week. The figure for Tokyo is seven kilograms (See p 8)

In comparison from LA and Tokyo, LA is trebled. What makes the big difference between two countries?

4. Write the words, phrases or sentences that impressed you the most in the book and explain why they impressed you. Or you could write your questions about the book.

Dung may seem like a waste material to us, but a dung beetle it is food. When an animal dies, its body can be used as food by other animals. They, like the dung beetle, are reducing pollution and recycling materials (See p 7)

If we destroy the food chain, it will affect not only the food problem, but also cause an affect for natural recycling. ( )
