I am a smart, handsome and respectable young boy. I love travelling and meeting new people. Being Eco friendly is a good idea because it allows us to protect and preserve what valuable assets we have in our surroundings. We can practice being Eco- friendly by turning off lights when it is not necessary, turning off water sources when there is no need to use water and recycling asset that can do so.
I am so glad I heard about the Eco Kids Summer Camp Program because it is important that we, the younger generation protect and preserve our environment. As a 12 year old girl, I learn in school that our beautiful Belize is full of natural resources and we should keep it clean – we should pick up trash when we see it, clean our yards, as well as our community for it to look pristine and charming.
From since I was a child my parents thought me about conserve water and energy. I had never put importance then, but now I thank them for being an inspiration and have influence me to become and ECO-boy. Nothing beats nature. Ever since the birth of technology man with his intelligent has built great and powerful things. Unfortunately nature has paid the price. We have global warming which is a result of massive deforestation the burning of toxic fumes witch has now destroyed a big portion of the ozone layer.
When I heard the term EcoKid the first thing that came to my mind was how my ideas can be helpful to my school and my beautiful Yo Creek. I looked around and saw that garbage is a great problem in my environment. I believe that garbage should be a great concern to everyone and this starts at school. I can see that the amount of garbage produced at school is a lot.
I want to be an eco-kid because I want to preserve nature. Nature is all living things that God created for us to enjoy. He created all animals, plants and even us humans. When I look at the rainforest, I would like to just start planting more and more trees so that it would grow more and more beautiful for all to view and enjoy.
I believe that since I am a nature lover, I would make an excellent Eco Kid 2013. As young citizens of this beautiful jewel we call home, there is a lot that it offers to us. We have the prestigious barrier reef and atolls, the magnificent Maya mountain and rain forest and numerous ancient monuments, too many to mention.
