提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!

I am Hilarie Barsky from Good Morning America Now; my guest is Cindy Crawford. Happy pre-mother's day

 

Oh, thank you

 

Do your kids do anything special?

 

 I am sure I’ll be getting some objects made out of clay. Yeah actually I saw them working on it last week when I was volunteering at school. And they're like you're not supposed to be seeing them. And I said ok, I don’t see it. But I know I am getting a clay hand.

 

They’re 16 and 8

 

Yes.

 

And they have made you eco-friendly in a way

 

Well, I think as soon as you become a mother, you start having more concern about the planet that you're bringing children you know to live on. But also the school that they go to is very environmentally aware, and it's just a big part of the curriculum there, and it's kind of show me that I need to pay more attention to it, and we've learn from each other, you know like our school does a beach cleaning up every year and we all go, we do it together. And I think if they, they saw me wasting plastics or whatever, they would say something. It’s kind of like smoking, you know how now if anyone smokes, the five-year-old, its like “mom”, and I mean I don’t smoke but I’ve seen kids. First my mother smoke, and my daughter is just so mad at her “how I told grandma to stop!” But say if we're wasting plastics or you know running, you know they know turn off the water when you're brushing your teeth they don’t just leave it run, they already know that

 

Wow they’re so savvy

 

But I think they re just make it a see mikle timey that they we don’t, that we have to learn that. They’re just growing up in a world as the way it is.

 

And tell us you have developed this reusable water bottle?

 

Well I, I teamed up with Pure Water Filtration which is a, uh they make water filters for home use. We teamed up to make reusable mineral bottles. We call it thirsty for change and even I started just myself like ok, I am not going to use plastic water bottles at home. I started just easy. and I stopped 6 water bottles a day, 6 plastic water bottles which is over 2000 a year, I mean it I thought wow and then my kids see me doing it my husband sees me doing it and other people who are at my house . I just have one other pictures sitting out I have a room temple and I have one refregis cold. And that's what I gave people now, and then when you make one small change you're like well what else can I do. It’s empowering to do little changes.

 

It’s interesting I throw out some water bottles this morning and put them in the recycable bin in my apartment building; I can’t believe how many bottles I have thrown out.

 

Well, it's like 50 billion water bottles that I think that a year we use in America and only less than 15% are recycled, so that's 86% aren’t recycled. and you know besides the financial implication, the plastic is made from petroleum from oil, and I think that the numbers on that were something like if we didn’t use off, if America didn’t use off all the plastics bottle, it would fuel 100,000 cars for one year.

 

It’s incredible

 

And when you think about that, just the cost because the part of the cost of the bottle of the water is the bottle that we throw out, and also you know there's also a lot of health concerns about when those bottle heat up, when you get a new car, does it get into the water, I mean aluminums doesn’t mean anything in the water plus I mean I think New York everyone also drink bottled water but where they’re tested is at the plant, and sometimes it’s going through very old pipes actually get to your apartment. So even though it might taste good, there is staff you might not see, and when you filtered the water and the pure water is three times filtered it’s a triple filtration system, it actually tastes great, and you know that you're not getting any lead or any the other you know things that could be lurking in old very old pipes
