Our environment is such a beautiful place to live in, yet our world tends to ignore how to take care of it. Some of us have turned our backs on preserving our home, but there are so many different and simple ways available for us to keep it clean. My assignment for fave was to survey people on how they “keep it green” – whether it be recycling, using the green bin, or choosing to use green beauty products.


The first, most encouraging statistic is that 96% of people surveyed do indeed recycle. A number we are all happy to hear, in 2011. Beyond this, 44% of those surveyed said they do use green beauty products at home, including products with recyclable packaging, are or- ganic, biodegradable, or have a high percentage of natural ingredients. These products include shampoo, facial cream, foundation, lipstick, face wash and toner, lip gloss, shower gel, body cream and mascara.


47% of teens surveyed use the green bin”


Although recycling is a popular practice among the people interviewed, 53% of our participants admitted that they do not use their green bin. This was mildly discouraging, be- cause the green bin program is critical in not only managing our waste disposal, but also in keeping our planet beautiful! Green bins are necessary in breaking down compostable food – which in turn enriches our soil, and allows our plants to grow. Green bins are responsible for flourishing flora – and anyone who appreciates natural beauty can’t argue with that!
