Reuse

The world is not invisible. It can be destroyed. That is why we need to reuse things such as water bottles, glass bottles, even steel and gallon jugs. Also you can make figures out of soda cans. So we should take care of it more like the agencies in the state of California spend about $300 million dollars to clean up the coastal area for trash. Also it takes approximately 12 million barrels of oil to make the amount. And also the world needs to reduce the things they use.
