1. Do you recycle now? Why?
想要答复这道题，我们首先要弄清楚何为recycle：收回那些可被再利用的东西—for reusable things；做环保志愿者和遵从一些地方规则—volunteer or follow the policies, 比方在上海废物分类。

? paper 纸
? reuse plastic bags 重复利用塑料袋
而这全部其实是为了收回利用可再生资源，从而减少这些物品的重复购买—try to reduce your purchases of these products and look for alternative。
Yes I do, as much as possible. I'm in Shanghai by the way, so we make recycling as a collaborative effort where everyone participates, and the reason why I do all of these is not just because I need to follow the policy, it also can really reduce the pollution generated by the burning of fossil fuels, so I really think we should recycle the right materials, like if you only recycle in the kitchen, it's definitely not enough. There are so many recyclables at home, office or bathroom that we have thrown away. For example, we can recycle clean bottles, cans, paper, and also we can reuse those plastic bags we bought from supermarket.

2. Did you recycle when you were a kid?
Wooo, interesting question. Yes, I did. Actually when I was in primary school, we had a lot of class activities, like having spring outing in the riverside park, and the fee of renting a bus was from our savings of bottle collecting. I mean every kid in our class was obsessed with finding plastic waste in our campus, which was really a hilarious scene I know, but we never felt embarrassed at that time as that was like our first time for being “financially independent”.

3. Will you recycle in the future？
I think the answer is yes. Not only will the recycling policy be trendy in the whole country, but we also need to be aware of the importance of recycling. Recycling the food waste can help us preserve natural resources for our future generation. In this way, proper recycling can maintain the balance in nature since it will save a lot of expense required for the virgin materials.

4. What kind of things do you recycle?
Plastic spoon. Since I have ordered food delivery a lot these days, they always send me plastic spoons, but I find they can be reused several times indeed. By the way, I'm more into using chopsticks, which have made the plastic spoon a waste totally. I think even reusing your plastic spoon for several times is not enough. The best way to cut it off is carrying your own reusable chopsticks seriously.
