HAVE you ever wondered why malls put at least two trash cans in one cornerâ€”one labeled â€œbiodegradableâ€ and the other â€œnon-biodegradableâ€?
Biodegradable and non-biodegradable are actually two different kinds of garbage.

Be simple that’s what they always say
But sometimes it’s hard to live that way
There are very many temptations
That’s why we are not simple in some situations

For you’re like stealing their money that can relieve their strife
Live simply so that others could simply live
That’s a poem I believe
