How to Change the World

There are manl' other ways that you can help change the world apart from the ones 'Jrat are listed here, but for now here are a few easy things to do, seeing as you are only a teen. You could do much more, the possibilities are endless.
You've most likely heard about recycling and you might even do it yourself. However, you may want to recycle even more. If you've finished drinking a bottle of water and you're definitely sure that you're not going to use it agairy recycle it. You can recycle many things, quite a few things are: papel, glass, cardboard and plastic.
Donate. Donation can vary from time to time. You may find yourself in a charity shop donating all your old clothes/shoes/toys or you could simply find yourself putting all your loose change inside a money box outside a charity shop. You don't have to do extreme things like for example donating blood if you're definitely not 100% sure about it. Do what you feel com-fortable with doing. Money that is donated to charity is usually used to help those that live in poverty or those who need a little extra care.
Littering. Time after time you may have found yourself in a position where you have littered. Littering contributes to polluting the planet and is quite hazardous to the people and animals around us. If there aren't any nearby bins, hold on to your rubbish until you find one. If your rubbish is recyclable, recycle it.

instead. If your joumey isn't walkable, you might want to take a bus/train instead. However, it may be best just to let your parents drive you if you don,t like to use public transport.

Don't give up if it takes time though. you could altematively want to change something or address a problem withl 1,eur
