TWO concerned eight-year-old girls are urging people to recycle their rubbish and avoid the dire consequences of polluting our planet.The new Environment Club at Uphill Primary School has inspired pupils Emma Caney and Daniella James, pictured right, so much that they are trying to make sure as many people as possible learn about the benefits of recycling.The pair wrote to the Weston & Somerset Mercury, urging people to go green and help save the planet.In the letter they say: "Did you know that you can now recycle plastic bottles if you live in North Somerset?"We would really appreciate it if everyone would recycle because our planet is becoming a rubbish dump."If you don't recycle the tips will be full and people will dump their rubbish in the countryside and then the animals may eat it and become ill or maybe even die."This is bad for the humans because we are running out of space for houses for people to live in. If we don't recycle global warming will start, all the tips are going to fill up, the sea will get higher and everywhere will flood and humans could get wiped out."You can recycle all sorts of plastic bottles such as lemonade, milk bottles, coke and shampoo.
