Hey, Brandon. What are you working on?
An article for the newspaper club. Have you heard of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch?
No, I haven’t. What’s that?
It’s a huge area of plastic garbage floating in the ocean. Ocean currents bring garbage there from all over the world. The plastic breaks down into tiny pieces and damages the marine ecosystem.
It’s shocking! How could this happen? If more people cared about our planet, there would not be so much pollution.
Some organizations are trying to clean up the world’s oceans. However, the tiny pieces of plastic, called microplastics, are difficult to clean up. Inventors will have to create new technology.
New technology? Why is that?
Microplastics would be easier to clean up if they weren’t so small. Because the pieces are so tiny, we can’t just scoop up the garbage from the ocean.
Maybe our generation can think of innovative ideas to clean up microplastics.
Yeah! I’ll ask our classmates in the science club about it.
I put the dresses in garment bags and packed them in this box.
Great. Let’s send them to Comme La Lune!
How can I help you today?
We’d like to send this package to Paris, France..
Certainly. We have standard shipping and express shipping.
Let’s see. Which do you recommend?
If I were you, I would choose the standard shipping option. It’s less expensive, and the package should arrive within ten days.
Sounds good! Thank you.
Today, we went to the post office and shipped the dresses that we made.
Now we just have to wait for the judges’ decision.
Congratulations, guys. That’s really exciting.
Congratulations to you and Emma! What a special Valentine’s Day surprise!
The top of the Empire State Building was so romantic.
I guess something good happened to all of us this week.
You know, I’m so grateful for you all. Without your friendship, my life in New York wouldn’t be so amazing. I’m so lucky.
We’re lucky too, Ayane!
