Plastic is bad news!

My Song about Plastic.

 

I wrote a song about plastic to help the important message that plastic is bad news!!! People produce so much plastic and often when they finish with it they just throw it onto the ground and it ends up in a river or the sea - where animals like turtles think it is food, so eat it and then they die!   

This is where Water Explores comes in - to save the world before it’s too late! I shared my song with my Water Explorers team, and we learnt it together, so that we would be able to share this important message with others too.  We use plastic instruments like plastic bags and bottles as percussion for the song, and I use a milk bottle decorated with colourful plastic lids as a megaphone.

We did a small bit of my song at the Water Explores National Event last week and I was glad that everybody enjoyed it so much. Follow this link for a YouTube clip of us singing my song in Howick: https://youtu.be/f64Zo4MvRJk

Here are the words of my whole song…  

 

Plastic Is Bad News

We don’t want plastic pollution

We want cleaner lakes and seas

If we don’t we’ll have no nature

People leave the world alone

 

We do not want more dead turtles

We don’t want more dead dolphins

Plastic trash gets in the oceans

It’s killing all our sea creatures

 

Hey! People! Plastic is bad news

Hey! People! It’s time to refuse

 

Plastic waste is filling     all our oceans and seas

Toxins travel from fish     to you and me

 

We don’t want more plastic straws

We don’t want more plastic bags

Time to cut down plastic packets

Single use plastic no more

 

Time to change our way of thinking

Time to change our attitude

So reuse, reduce and recycle

Repair, rethink and just refuse!

 

Hey! People! Plastic is bad news

Hey! People! It’s time to refuse

 

Plastic waste is filling     all our oceans and seas

Toxins travel from fish     to you and me

 

Hey! People! Plastic is bad news

Hey! People! It’s time to refuse
