For as long as I can remember my parents have always taught me the importance of recycling. They taught me throughout the years how to become a responsible person and to make sure that I keep the environment clean for the future generations to come. We often throw out things we think are no longer good when actually can be used for recycling purposes. These objects or anything we throw out in the garbage that can be recycled is considered a waste. By recycling, these things can be used to recreate something new.

Of all the years that I have been going to school, the main complaint that I have is that school starts way too early which means that am no getting enough sleep and I am tired when I go into school. This is a very big problem mainly because if all of the students are tired when they get into school every day, it will really effect the first half of their learning period because they won’t be able to retain the information that they are learning as well as they would if they had gotten an extra hour or two of sleep due to schools starting later in the day.
