Sabrina is a friend of the environment. She practices the idea of going green. How does she do it? When she goes to the market, she brings along plastic containers and a rattan basket. The butcher, fishmongers and vegetables sellers will pack the meat, fish and vegetables that she buys into these plastic containers. Then she carries all her purchases in the rattan basket. She always brings tiffin carriers to the shops or food stalls when she buys cooked food.Being a member of Nature Club of the Town Council, Sabrina helps to organize activities and conducts workshops for children, housewives and senior citizens. She tells them that they can be friends of the environment like her too. She educates the adult community on the importance of separating and sorting rubbish. She reminds the participants who attend her workshops to put unwanted items into the correct coloured bins. The blue bins are for glass products, such as bottles and vases, except for mirrors and glass panes. The orange coloured bins are for plastic containers and aluminium cans. Sabrina tells the participants not to put tins with old or used paint into the orange coloured bins.The children like to attend the workshops that Sabrina conducts once a month in the community hall. She uses all kinds of unwanted things as materials to make handicraft items for the children. The children enjoy cutting, pasting, stitching and gluing parts together to make new and useful items that they can use or give away as gifts to their friends, teachers and relatives.Sabrina lives in a single-storey house. There are many pails and containers around the compound. She leaves them there to collect rainwater that is later used to water the plants and wash the porch.

I WONDERI wonder why the grass is green,And why the wind is never seen?

Who taught the birds to build a nest,And told the trees to take a rest?

O, when the moon is not quite round,Where can the missing bit be found?

Who lights the stars, when they blow out?And makes the lightning flash about?

Who paints the rainbow in the sky,And hangs the fluffy clouds so high?

Why is it now, do you suppose,That Dad wont tell me, if he knows?
