We do not want to harm the planet any further so let us re-use, reduce and recycle. We must act now before it is too late, and realize that one small change can make a big difference. Presently, technology has replaced books and made life easier for mankind. Children are getting obese because of eating unhealthy food and spending countless hours in front of the television. The people of today’s society are very naive, they prefer spending most of their salary buying vehicles than walking. It is time to educate ourselves. Let us practice healthy living and make smart choices about the resources we exploit.
I want to be an ECOKID because I like taking care of the environment. I also like planting trees and taking care of the animals. I think everyone has the ability to take care of our environment. Best of all I like planting because it is very fun to plant. When you plant it is called REFORESTATION and when you cut down trees it is called DEFORESTATION. I learned it at school because I like to learn more and more of science because this subject is just very interesting.
A couple years ago my father was diagnosed with Lupus, I saw how he was living by taking so much medication daily and from a strict diet and that has inspired me to someday be a herbalist and our forests are very important for me to achieve this. In order to do this, one must go into the forest and collect samples of different vegetation that are out there and bring them back to the lab for future studies. Someday I plan to play a big part in finding the cure for diseases that are affecting our society like HIV, cancer, lupus and other diseases that don’t yet have a cure.
