Mum, can I throw away these bottles and cans?
No. We should keep them.
Because we can reuse them. Let me show you.
Look, Alice. We can clean this small can and put your rubbers and crayons in it.
That's a good idea!
We can put some flowers in this bottle.
Then it'll be a vase!
That's right. We can reuse other old things too. Do you have any ideas, Alice?
Yes. Look at this big can. I can put my pens, pencils and rulers in it.
Good idea, Alice!
It's the right size! It'll be a nice pen holder.
The journey of a plastic bottle
I'm a plastic bottle.
A week ago, I was full of water.
Then a woman bought me at the supermarket and took me home.
The next morning, the woman drank the water and threw me into a rubbish bin.
A street cleaner found me.
He put me into a truck.
There were a lot of other bottles in the truck.
The truck took us to a factory.
Some people cleaned us and put us into a big machine.
We became small pieces.
Finally, they made us into a piece of cloth.
Look at your T-shirt.
Does it look like a plastic bottle?
Save some paper cups,
And find a little piece of string.
Use them to make toy phones,
And you can talk and sing!
When you find waste paper,
Don't throw it away.
Use it to make paper planes,
Then take them outside to play.
