I can make a difference by reusing things instead of throwing them away. Things like water bottles, plastic bags, and toys around my house are plastic. Plastic can threaten the lives of animals in the ocean and make oceans and beaches dirty .Instead of throwing away plastic bags I can keep them in my house for times when I need them.And I can sell toys for money instead of trowing it away.Instead of spending so much on plastic bottles of water I will use a reusable one.These are just simple ways I can reuse and help my environment.
