Good for the world
July 10, 2023

By Leiland, Healthy Trailblazer Journal | When I was younger, I used to always throw plastic everywhere without caring. But after doing some serious research I realized that I need to be a change agent. Now I don’t use much plastic. Instead of plastic bottles, I drink from my water dispenser. I recycle now because I know it is good for the world. I want people to know that plastic is dangerous and we need to recycle it. Let God shine through you by recycling.
