In the past few weeks of school we learned a lot about stuff....literally. Stuff like where does stuff come from and where does it go. I know it is a lot of stuff to take in, so let's start with our class digging through stuff, the stuff is called “trash”. We did this stuff to help the environment, digging through 2 days of trash was pretty discussing but it was very interesting to see how much stuff could be either recycled or composted. In the end we found more then 75% of stuff that would be put in a landfill could be put in a compost or recycled.


The second thing we did in the class was we watched a video on where our stuff comes from.

We learned that around 80% of the stuff we buy within 6 months gets thrown away. Other stuff that we learned was that over 75% of plastic bottles do not get recycled.


In the end, I learned that more people need to recycle their stuff. We all need to compost. It's our world, let's take care of it.
