Once there were two glorious and dynamic yurts at the English Village in Ling Jhou Primary School. They were ruined due to time and weather, and finally abandoned in the corner of the campus after our old building was torn down. As it is such a pity, our team determined to rebuild the yurts. Since we do not have rebuilding fees, we thought of the glamorous, trend-leading department stores in our neighborhood. There must be a lot of discarded trash. Thus, we visited them, gathered and reused the recycled materials. Turning trash into gold, we make the two yurts be glamorous and vibrant again, and become a small performance hall in the community.


1. To recycle the leftover from the department stores around our local community to rebuild two yurts.

2. To understand the recycling environment of our local community, and bring up some suggestions that can make it better.
