  • Do you like the idea of ​​pencils that contain seeds that are planted?and do they have a role in reducing pollution, and preserving the environment?

  • Mr. Ben, you said that it is good to act according to your beliefs, but there are many people who act according to a wrong belief, not everyone has a correct belief. The closest example of people who are the cause of the deterioration of the environment by their belief that the environment is not important, they do simple things in their belief that it does not cause deterioration, such as throwing Waste and the use of plastic, and this is something that deteriorates the environment, but I am sure that your belief is 100 percent correct, because you are an active member of the environment and a helper to your country.
