another way. By reusing things it means less
waste, litter, and pollution in the air and on

metals in the right way can make these things
reusable and reduce waste.

bag and pick up waste in the street to reduce
the litter. Even just doing it in your
neighborhood helps a lot.

Years Resolution” you will improve the environment
in drastic ways! Thanks for helping!
