Paul:

Excuse me. Would you like to make a contribution to Greener World?

Sylvia:

Sure. What are you working on right now?

Paul:

Well, we're developing educational programs for schools. We want to show children how the oceans are being polluted by industrial waste. And we want to tell them about how fish supplies have been depleted through overfishing.

Sylvia:

I think what you're doing is terrific. I wish I could do more to help.

Paul:

So, have you ever thought about becoming a member of Greener World?

Sylvia:

No, but tell me a little more about it.

Paul:

We've been active in this area for almost five years now. Are you aware of some of our other local projects?

Sylvia:

No, I don't think I am.

Paul:

Well, one of the things we've been doing is planting trees. We have a group of volunteers involved in several tree-planting projects in different parts of the city. We're trying to get as many trees planted as possible to help clean the air and also to help lower the temperature during the summer.

Sylvia:

That sounds smart.

Paul:

Uh-huh. We've also placed over 50 recycling bins around the city so that people can drop off things for recycling – cans, bottles, plastic bags, and newspapers. Last year we raised over $100,000 through recycling.

Sylvia:

That's fantastic. I'd love to get involved in Greener World. Where do I sign?
