Fix it, don’t toss it
When things break these days, our first inclination is to just throw it away. But our society is creating too much garbage and we all need to do our part to try to reduce waste. If there is a way to fix your toy or piece of clothing, then try to do that first. You can ask one of your parents to help you sew it or you can take it to a local fix it group (a lot of cities now have groups of volunteers that will help you fix items, like small appliances or toys). You can also call the company that made the product to see if they replace the part that broke.
