Can You Do the Plastic Challenge?
Introduction-What the plastic challenge is
Do you know how much plastic you are using a day? Our middle school class completed a challenge that we call the Plastic Challenge, which is a way for us to see how much plastic we are using in one week. We want people to think about how much plastic they use. If we don’t reduce the trash we use, the Earth will be a different place. Did you know that plastic is made from fossil fuels? It’s important to use less fossil fuels if we want to keep the Earth healthy.
The plastic challenge is simple. Try to reduce any plastic that you may use in an average day. Some examples of what you may want to lower in use are: Styrofoam, plastic bags, and plastic packages. After trying your best for a week, you can share your experience with friends and family and ask them if they will try this for a week.
