Always "Think 5"
Dear friends and family, we have to "Think 5"
To keep the Earth healthy and improve our lives.
By recycling all sorts of everyday things,
The skies will be blue, and the birdies will sing.
Let's start with plastic, it's used to make jugs
Which is quite fantastic. It also makes tubs.
When recycling plastic make sure you are able
To see the numbers one through five on the label.
Then there is metal. It's shiny and strong.
To throw it away would be wasteful and wrong.
So when you are done with those rusty old cans,
Send them for recycling, and they might come back as fans.
Don't forget glass used for bottles and jars,
When thrown in the trash, broken glass can make scars.
But all those glass things in the recycling truck's load
Get ground to glass cullet to make nice new roads.
When in the landfill those paper and boxes
Will break down to methane, which smells so obnoxious.
Recycle those things like your coffee cup holders,
And they might come back as new manila folders.
So what we have learned is recycling is good
For all Earth's inhabitants and neighborhoods.
So always remember that we should "Think 5"
Reuse and recycle and keep Earth alive.
