Messi helps fight climate change – level 3

09-04-2024 07:00

Football star Lionel Messi has taken a stand against climate change and he teamed up with an environmental organization Join the Planet.

Messi wants to extend his impact beyond sports by participating in efforts to protect the environment. His collaboration involves cleaning up coastlines worldwide and transforming collected plastics into a sculpture that resembles his iconic left football boot. This initiative begins with cleaning the Paraná River in Rosario, Argentina. The director of Join the Planet Foundation expressed optimism about Messi’s involvement, and he emphasized Messi’s ability to influence global culture positively. Messi’s sculpture is made from recycled materials and highlights the importance of sustainability.

Messi believes that collective effort and community spirit can safeguard the planet. Join the Planet repurposes discarded materials to fund projects that preserve natural ecosystems globally.

Difficult words: take a stand (to express an opinion), resemble (to look like), repurpose (to find a new use for an idea, product, or building).
