Hi my name is Colton, I’m 10 years old and I go to MorningSide Elementary. I got interested in recycling at home. We have been recycling as long as I can remember. When I was in first grade Ms. DeFranza talked to us about starting a recycling program. I’ve been doing it ever since. I also try to think of new ways to reuse things. At MorningSide we recycle paper, plastic and ink cartridges. I would like to talk to our principal about starting to recycle cans next.
My parents are really proud that I got involved in recycling at school. We all can help save the planet! I think when I grow up I’d like to be in animal research or engineering and design.
I have even gotten some of my friends involved in recycling at school! My little brother has started working with me and we recycle things at home. What do you recycle at your school?
Colton is a 4th grade student at Morningside Elementary. He enjoys reading, hanging out with his friends, and watching a good hockey game!
