Describe a skill that you learned from older people
You should say

- Who you learned it from
- How you learned it
- And how you feel about it

• It is true that the younger generation can learn valuable skills and life lessons from older people.
• One skill I learnt is to recycle, reuse and repurpose everything.
• I learned this skill from my incredibly talented grandmother.
• I grew up in a nuclear family with both parents working busy jobs.
• Every year during summer I used to spend two months with my grandparents.
• My grandmother would find imaginative ways to reuse and recycle everything in her home.
• She would never dispose old clothes and would instead sew little pieces together to make curtains, quilts, pillowcases, tablecloths, etc.
• She would recycle glass jars and use them to hold spices, tea, grains, lentils, etc.
• She used newspaper to clean windows and reused aluminum foil to clean pots and pans.
• She made old broken furniture drawers into garden containers. She used fruit and vegetable scraps from her kitchen for compost.
• She would keep me busy with craft activities like making old card boxes into fun toys, cars, and robots.
• I mostly learned everything by observing her and helping her with some of the repurposing projects she did.
• I started to implement her ideas at my house too and as I grew older it became a habit.
• I feel indebted to my grandmother that she taught me these valuable skills.
• Reduce, reuse, and recycling waste is so important in present times.
• Our landfills are filling fast, and recycling is one way to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfills.
• Global warming and plastic pollution have taken a toll on the planet and people need to take action to stop this damage
• I am so glad that I am doing my part in saving our planet.
