CONCURSO DE POESÍA, ESCRITURA Y RECICLAJE

A Soda Can's Journey

All of my soda was gone
So I got put in a bin, just after dawn
I was happy I could be used again,
I even met a cardboard box, named Ben!

We met plastic bottles named Jill and Bill
They were happy they didn't end up in a stinky landfill!
Bill was hoping to be a cool new shirt
And Jill wanted to be a plate for dessert!

We got dumped into a big truck
I landed next to a fancy Mason jar. What luck!
He said that his best friend Suzy
was excited to go into the paper-only jacuzzi!

I was separated from my new friends
But this isn't where our story ends.
Suddenly, I was flying into a land...
Full of aluminum cans!

Then we are all squished together
Hey...is that Coke my old friend Heather?
We were broken up piece by piece
And then I felt the temperature start to increase

Oh boy, it's getting hot
In this aluminum can melting pot!
We were poured into many blocks
As we cooled, I listened to the ticking of the clock.

I was molded back into a can
And that is how my new life began
I was put into a box with rows of ten
"Hi," said a familiar voice, "It's Ben!"

Trash Panda

I was digging through some trash
When something gave me a bash
I turned my head and saw a can
So I said, "Why'd you put that in there man?"
I picked up the can and started out
But I stepped in a box and began to shout
"THE BOX IS CARDBOARD, RECYCLE IT NOW!"
But I slipped on some paper and squealed OW!
Paper is recyclable too, what will I find next?
A glass bottle! I was vexed
Then a plastic tub fell on my head
Over there was the top and it was red
I found the rule breaker and began to educate her
Plastic, metal, glass, cardboard, and paper
Don't belong in the trash
There's another place for this stash
Instead recycle them and then you'll see
How it affects animals like you and me
Put them in the blue lid recycling cart
You must make sure to do your part
I'm the masked bandit but I'm not mean
Recycling's important to keep the Earth clean!

Valen Porges - Escuela Elemental Blankner School - 4.° grado

Always "Think 5"

Dear friends and family, we have to "Think 5"
To keep the Earth healthy and improve our lives.
By recycling all sorts of everyday things,
The skies will be blue, and the birdies will sing.

Let's start with plastic, it's used to make jugs
Which is quite fantastic. It also makes tubs.
When recycling plastic make sure you are able
To see the numbers one through five on the label.

Then there is metal. It's shiny and strong.
To throw it away would be wasteful and wrong.
So when you are done with those rusty old cans,
Send them for recycling, and they might come back as fans.

Don't forget glass used for bottles and jars,
When thrown in the trash, broken glass can make scars.
But all those glass things in the recycling truck's load
Get ground to glass cullet to make nice new roads.

When in the landfill those paper and boxes
Will break down to methane, which smells so obnoxious.
Recycle those things like your coffee cup holders,
And they might come back as new manila folders.

So what we have learned is recycling is good
For all Earth's inhabitants and neighborhoods.
So always remember that we should "Think 5"
Reuse and recycle and keep Earth alive.

Comes Back Around

Plastics
Chugged and sipped, poured and flipped water bottles quench your thirst,
Comes back around as brand new carpet.

Metals
Crushed and crimped, heated and melted,
Comes back around as recycled helmets.

Glass
Collected, washed, and shattered - smashed to bits,
Comes back around as microchips.

Cardboard
Boxes safely deliver packages straight to you,
Comes back around as tissues you can use.

Paper
From trees to mush made into newspaper and books,
Comes back around as recycled notebooks.

Recycle for the planet, green means go.
Always remember Think 5 will help us grow.

Leland Taylor, Jr. - Escuela Elemental Blankner School - 5.° grado

Give Me Five

Recycling recycling what does it do?
It keeps the world safe for me and you!
When you pick up a bottle - plastic or glass...
Think quick before you put it in the trash.

Always "Think Five" - paper, plastic bottles and jugs,
Don't forget the cardboard, metal cans, glass bottles, jars, and tubs.
Remember these items go inside the blue bin.
So they can be made into things that help us win.

They can make carpet, new bottles and plastic grass.
These items are destined to last.
Family and friends, it's quite simple to do...
Remember the world depends on you.
