  • Community Recycling Campaign is an excellent program to do. I have always been strong on the words "Recycle and don't litter". Every time there is litter on the ground, it bugs me, especially if they are cigarette buds. The whole world should respect Mother Earth because, without her, we would not have a home. I have also always liked to help charities because I think they are no different than us, and it's just how much money they have. They too have the same feelings and heart as us, so this is a great chance. It is even a great link to this year's robotics project - "Trash Trek". It can be an outreach project for us. So I am very proud to be doing Community Recycling Campaign.

    13. E-Waste: Dark Side of Digital Age >> These days, it's often cheaper and more convenient to buy a new PC than to upgrade an old one. But what happens to those old computers once they've been abandoned for newer models? The refuse from discarded electronics products, also known as e-waste, often ends up in landfills or incinerators instead of being recycled. And that means toxic substances like lead, cadmium and mercury that are commonly used in these products can contaminate the land, water and air.
