En la urbanización Francisco de Miranda, existe un problema de contaminación ambiental, forestal y sonica.
Hay basura en las calles,
los residentes no reciclan,
mucho ruido producido por los carros y aparatos electrodomésticos (equipos de sonidos, televisores).
Eliminar la contaminación,
Preservar el ambiente,
So I found these interesting facts about recycling that after reading I hope will stay with you and increase your awareness of recycling.
Here they are:
I believe in recycling, and I believe in minimizing waste. The manufacture and use of plastic bags is a critical issue these days because many government and environmental groups want to reduce the amount of plastic that ends up on our planet and in our oceans for all eternity. My grocery store double-bags my entire purchase for me when I check-out. I sometimes have 30 plastic bags once I get home, but I always reuse them. The state of California is considering banning all plastic bags. I previously lived in a city (San Francisco) that enacted such a law, and the result was positive. People brought their own reusable bags with them to the grocery store. Restaurants provided paper-based take-out containers. I like the idea of the state-wide ban, but I do see some issues with it.
“One, two, three ... shoot!” Students' expression of help to the environment in consonance to the call of the administration lead by our very own school principal, Dr. Levita U. Ramos; and every teacher to help save the environment. It is assumed to be a simple way, but an incredible action towards saving the next generation of lives.
So much has happened today, I don't even know where to start. I am feeling very emotional because the conference has come to an end. We made new friends, learned new things, and came together as a community. That's what a SEED workshop is all about.
It is the end of Day 4 of the first National Teacher Workshop in Quito. Today was the public exhibition. Mobs and mobs of students, university professors, Schlumberger volunteers, and others poured into the exhibition hall and then met with each project team to learn about their projects. It wasn't uncommon to see 25 people huddled around one project, and it was only a matter of minutes that you had to wait in order to hear loud cheering and clapping from any given spot in the room. It was an exciting day.
Day three of the First National Teacher Workshop in Quito has been anything but boring. For me the day started early with a Zumba class. Zumba is a Latin-infused aerobics class that is popular in the US, but doing it in Ecuador was an entirely different experience. It felt more authentic, and it was definitely more wild. I'm going to try it again tomorrow.
