This Saturday 22 April is Earth Day. 🌎
During this special day, people from all over the world show how much they love and appreciate our planet!
Earth is our home, and it takes care of us every day with its food, water, fresh air and beauty.
So why not give it something back by finding ways to help preserve planet Earth and the natural world? 🤔
Well, that’s exactly what these record breakers did!
Most bottles recycled by a dog
An adorable Labrador from the UK, called Tubby, helped recycle an estimated 26,000 plastic bottles in six years. 🤯
How did he manage that, you ask?
By collecting them on his daily walks, crushing them, and passing them to his owner Sandra…
Such a good boy! 🐶
Most people potting plants simultaneously
This record is very popular and has been broken a few times. 👀
Currently, the record title belongs to a group of 4,035 people in Udaipur, India, led by the Prince of Udaipur! 👑
In fact, the Prince decided to lead by example and celebrate his birthday by planting as many plants as he could.
Largest vegan burger
Have you ever eaten a vegan burger? 🍔
Vegan is an environmentally friendly diet that avoids using any animal products (such as meat, milk and eggs) and only uses plant-based foods instead (such as fruit, vegetables, cereals and nuts). 🥗
Vegan burgers can be made of soy, veggies, rice and more delicious ingredients, resulting in a delicious meal!
This burger in particular was not only eco-friendly and delicious, but also of record-breaking size.
In fact, it weighted 162.5 kg (358 lb 4 oz)… that’s as heavy as three octopuses. 🐙 🐙 🐙
The burger was then given to charity to distribute to homeless people.
Now it’s YOUR turn!
Eco-warriors assemble! Now it’s YOUR turn to make a difference. 💪
Recycling helps us reuse the precious resources that our planet Earth has given us, and it’s one of the best ways to help reduce the pollution.
So, what better way to celebrate Earth Day than breaking a world recycling record?!
The record is for the fastest time to sort two bags of recyclable materials (team of two) and it’s anyone under the age of 16 can attempt it.
Here is what you will need:
- A teammate – can be a friend or sibling 🧑🤝🧑
- Recyclable materials, such as paper cups and plastic bottles 🥛
- 2 bags to sort out the materials in ♻️
- 3 bins 🗑️
