    Recycle used paper, or use it for scrap paper.


  6. Owen Canada says:

    You should use tap water not plastic water to help climate change

    That was the best assembly ever!


  8. yukta USA says:

    we should make usage of the three r’s which are recycle reduce and reuse


  9. Sabirna USA says:

    I think that kids and adults should always turn off lights when not in use because any bit can help make a difference and help the earth. It will slow down climate change.

    One way that kids can help to stop climate change is to use bikes instead of cars. Cars let out a lot of carbon dioxide (CO2). Which will cause lots of air pollution. Another way that kids can do to help to sop climate change is to tell bike sellers to lower their prices.


  11. Nina USA says:

    I think kids should try to plant more trees because trees help the environment. Trees help the environment by taking in carbon dioxide and producing oxygen. It could also be a learning experience.


  12. Jack USA says:

    There are a lot of ways kids can slow down climate change, my favorite way is to unplug chargers because they still take energy when nothing is plugged into it.
