——Recycling club 环保社团

Besides caring the wellbeing of animals, our students also care for the environment. In the past few months, students had witnessed the effect of global warming. From the warmest November to the flooding problem in the Middle  East, we all learnt that if we don’t act soon, it may be too late. While world leaders were meeting at Paris to discuss what they can do on an international scale, our students can aim to work on something closer to home.

在关爱动物健康的同时,同学们也在关爱着环境的健康。过去的数月,同学们目睹了全球变暖的影响。无论是最温暖的11月还是中东水灾的问题,都在提醒我们:保护环境,时不我待。当各国领导人聚首巴黎商讨如何解决全球环境问题之时,我们的同学也在为此奉献出自己的绵薄之力。

With the help of teachers, students had found that there is a company in Suzhou that collects waste paper from schools and uses the material to make pencils. This contributes to eliminating the need to cut down trees and in turn slows down global warming.

在老师们的帮助下,同学们得知苏州有一家公司专门从学校收集废纸做成环保铅笔,这样可以减少树木砍伐,从而减缓全球变暖的趋势。

 

So they started to put recycling paper at various strategic places in the school and started collecting waste paper. In the beginning, the progress was slow and sometimes people did not co-operate. For instance, some other students used our recycle bins as rubbish bins and dirtied a few packs of paper.

所以,他们开始在学校里回收纸张并且收集废纸。起初进展缓慢,而且还有一些人并不合作,比如一些同学把废纸回收站当作垃圾箱,还弄脏了几包纸。

 

 

 

But with increased communication, students started to realize what our members are doing and they are willing to co-operate. A few weeks later, the first batch of pencils was produced. Our students are very happy with what they have achieved. They think that they have to share the fruit of their labour with the whole school.

但后来经过增进交流后,其他同学也开始认同我们的做法并且乐意合作。没过几周,第一批铅笔终于制作出来了! 同学们对这样的收获非常满意,并且认为应该与全校的同学共同分享这个成果。

 

They started to distribute recycled pencils to everyone in school. They had also promoted the importance of environmental protection to the Kindergarten and Primary students. Let us all contribute to the cause of environmental protection and leave a better environment for our future generation.

他们将这些回收铅笔分发给学校的每一个人,还特地向幼儿园小朋友和小学生们宣传了环保的重要性。让我们大家为环境保护贡献出自己的一份力量,创建更好的环境造福下一代!
