My brother believes strongly in recycling. You could say he has a passionate attitude about it. One day, at a family reunion, he gathered up all the plastic bottles. As people watched, he quietly took the bottles to a recycling center. When he returned, someone asked and he had statistics ready to share. My brother told us how long it takes aplastic bottle breaks down, and how easily it can be recycled. Soon, he had converts, and now almost everyone inthe family recycles.
