Are you wasteful?

Mar 29, 2007
With all of the talk about global warming, more kids are becoming aware of the condition of our environment. Fortunately, we can help in many ways! Take this quiz to find out if you're on your way to saving our environment, or just making it a whole lot worse.

1. You wake up extra early on Thursday morning to download Brand New Planet. Just as you're in the middle of reading a great quiz, your carpool arrives to take you to school. You know you're going to finish the article when you come home, but no one will need the computer until then. You decide to:

a. Turn the computer off. After all, you won't be using it for seven hours.

b. Leave it on. Waiting a whole five minutes for it to boot up again when you come home is a waste of your life!

c. Hesitate, then change the monitor to sleep mode. At least that's not a total waste of energy!

2. When you've taken the last bite of your apple, you put it:

a. Into the special garbage can you have for wet waste.

b. Into the trash, along with the milk carton you've finished as well.

c. Leave it on the counter, unsure where it should go.

3. Whew! Your history teacher finally lets you empty out the pages of your heavy binder. The old, unneeded notes go:

a. Into the recycling bin, after you've removed all the staples.

b. Straight into the trash can!

c. Into your backpack, doomed to stay there forever.

4. In your school washroom, you notice that someone left the sink dripping, so you:

a. Take the paper towel you were using to dry your hands and twist the knob until the dripping stops.

b. Decide that it's not your problem, because you were not the one that left it dripping. Some people are so wasteful!

c. Mention it to your friend who recently joined the school's environment club, pointing them in the direction of the washroom.

5. You're working on a project with the lights on over your desk when your sister yells that you should come for dinner. It's your favourite tonight, and you only remember you forgot to turn the lights off when you reach the kitchen. You:

a. Race back up the stairs and quickly flick the switch off. Now you can eat that pizza!

b. Sit down at the table and grab a huge slice. Then another one.

c. Decide to eat quickly rather than walking all the way up to your room.
