When we recycle, used materials are converted into new products, reducing the need to consume natural resources. Recycling also protects natural habitats for the future. Sucardi Cijntje, President of Interact Club of Curaçao (at Radulphus College) is really passionate about recycling. She spends a lot of her free time doing clean ups around the island with her Interact team. There is a lot of pollution on Curaçao, which harms the island’s local animals. A lot of plastic also finds its way into the sea causing mortal damage to turtles and other sea creatures. Sucardi wishes you to be aware of the environment and wants you to know you can also do your part in keeping earth safe for future generations.
