Now I would like to share you about 3R. Do you know about 3R? 3R mean Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
- Reduce mean we don’t use a lot of plastics. Ex when I go to shopping I did not use the plastic. But I use reusable bag to carry the thing.
- Reuse mean use plastic again. Ex I use the plastic bag that it broken when I make the reusable bag.
- Recycle mean we change the plastic to the new thing. But it use a lot of energy. Ex I take the plastic to make the electricity. But it a lot of energy and money to buy the machine.
On reuse we did the experiment already. The experiment are making something that help people use less plastics. My experiment is make the bag with Vitou and our bag is look good. The bag that we make first is help to protected the tablet from the rain. That bag it take me 5 hours and make from plastic bag that we throw it away. The second bag is for put the books. That bag it take me 4 hours and make from the plastic bag. Landfill mean the place that for put plastic. The problem of landfill is it take a lot of space because it take place to dig the hole and then we put the plastic in. Other problem is it can make the water system is not good because when we do the landfill they has to dig the hole and if the peoples dig the hole is too deep the chemical will go into the water system by people throw the plastic in. One more is make methane gas. Methane gas is the gas the come from the organic west when it don’t have the oxygen and it not good for the environment too. The plant that take the methane gas is the Christmas tree other is not take this gas. Now peoples like to burn the plastic because when they burn the plastic it easy and fast. The problem of burning plastic is it can make Co2 is the gas that we don’t want to have it a lot. Have a lot of smoke that it can make people die by crushing thing because when someone they burn the plastic near the rood. The smoke it spread out to the rood and has some motor or car come then it crush together. When has a trip or have some party they like to throw the plastic to the rood and it can make the float. Other than that is can make the fish die because when have the plastic into the water then fish they think that plastic is their food and they eat plastic so it a can make them die. To sew the problem we has to help the environment like don’t throw the rubbish in the water, when go to shop take the plastic bag go with, use the leaves of banana, put the rubbish in to the right bin Ex we put the organic waste into one bin and the plastic waste into plastic bin. 5D mean Define, Discover, Design, Develop and Deploy.
- Define mean to find the problem. Find the problem plastic.
- Discover mean learn problem. Ex learn the problem of plastic.
- Defign mead use it again. Ex like I make the plastic bag that strong.
- Develop mean make it better. Ex when I make the bag finish I think about the bag (How to make it better.)
- Deploy mean teach someone about something that you do the step 5D. Ex When we do the bag finish we go to teach someone to make the same like us.
On Friday we went to the BKK market. When arrived there I saw a lot of plastics , people rubbish and so on. We went there because we wanted to know about the plastics. Then we interviewed some of the people in the BKK market. We knew a lot of ideas in BKK market. After that we went to City mall market. When we went to there we interviewed some people at there and all thing that in there are use plastics. We went there my friend they in the interview one mad he tell us about coca cola. When he buy the Coca Cola they give him a plastic but he don’t want to take the plastic and he give the plastic back to the seller. After that we are went to stadium and we eat lunch at there. Then we went to Cintri. At Cintri we learn a lot of thing like in one day at PP not all the place they get 1400 ton to 1500 ton of rubbish.
On Wednesday went outside of Liger to ask questions and we are went with some of Sophorn group too. When we went there we saw a lot of plastics and people use a lot of plastic too. We ask the questions to a lot of people because we divided to the group. One have three peoples and one person has to ask 2 peoples. When I ask one moment she burn the chicken I ask (Do you burn the plastic). She says no but she burry the plastic. Then two month she go and she chack the plastic that she burry but the plastic that she burry is not decompose. So I says the plastic it take long time to decompose.
Iron, Plastic bag, Needle, String, Scissor, Buttall
This bag I made with Vitou. This bag it help people to don’t use a lot of plastic and reuse plastic too. It is for put the tablet and so on. When the tablet fall this bag is not help them. But when the rain come the rain it can not go in to your tablet. In this bag it have just only one step and it help you to carry it. The length of this bag is 22 cm-23 cm and the weight is 19 cm-20 cm. The strap of this bag is 110 cm and it have color blue , oranges. To make this bag it take me 5 hours. How to make this bag?
- Is to make the plastic strong then cut it and take any shape that you want.
- Sew it , when you sew you have to make it strong
- Put the strap to the bag and sew it
- Make any design that you want back or front.
- Test it with water but don’t test with your table or your phone.
If your want to make your bag strong and did not break your table or phone. You put just the foam or the material that you think it help your table or phone. Then you do the same like I tell you before.
