Fairytale

Once upon a time there was a planet whose name was



“Sparkclean”. It was relatively small but bustling with life! All


living creatures on that planet lived happily in love and peace.



They also loved their planet a lot and they took great care of it!

Once upon a time there was a planet whose name was



“Sparkclean”. It was relatively small but bustling with life! All


living creatures on that planet lived happily in love and peace.



They also loved their planet a lot and they took great care of it!

But time flew fast, as fast as it flies in fairytales, and the people of



Sparkclean stopped being loving and caring for their planet. They


built enormous buildings and cut the mountains so as to build



roads and highways. They dried the lakes so as to turn them to


farmlands and dirtied the vast blue sea with their gigantic ships.

Sparkclean stopped being loving and caring for their planet. They


built enormous buildings and cut the mountains so as to build



roads and highways. They dried the lakes so as to turn them to


farmlands and dirtied the vast blue sea with their gigantic ships.

And, to cut a long story short, they filled Sparkclean planet



with so much rubbish and waste that the poor planet got



seriously ill… Its name almost changed into “Smearstink”


Planet! The trees and flowers withered and the sea had nothing


like the bright blue and cerulean colours. It was grey and dark



and miserable exactly the same as the other areas on the



planet…

Planet! The trees and flowers withered and the sea had nothing

And the people? No need to wonder? Over the


years, they got used to living among the rubbish



and they didn’t care the least for the once beautiful


Sparkclean planet! The King of Sparkclean was



desperate and couldn’t even sleep at nights. His


head was aching but no matter how hard he tried,



he couldn’t come up with any solution that would


help his planet be clean again! How awful… This is



how the King was feeling: AWFUL…

Then, one not so sunny day, while two little girls were playing


over the fields and far away, they heard a weird, faint voice:



“How can you live in such a dirty place? Everything is so filthy


around you! Can’t you really see that your planet gets more and



more sick day by day?”



“Who’s speaking”, Elpis, one of the two girls, asked in surprise!



Her name refers to Greek mythology, in which Elpis was the



spirit of hope and was usually depicted as a young woman,


carrying flowers in her hands.

“If you see me, I’m silver and if you touch me, I’m soft. I can


wrap around your food if you want! Can you guess what I


am?”, asked shyly a used piece of aluminium foil as it was



struggling to come out of a huge pile of rubbish!

wrap around your food if you want! Can you guess what I


am?”, asked shyly a used piece of aluminium foil as it was



struggling to come out of a huge pile of rubbish!

And this is how that little piece of once shiny aluminium foil



started chatting with the two girls. It told them about the time


when their planet was clean. The water in the lakes, the rivers


and the sea was so crystal clear that even the smallest star in the



sky could see its reflection in it. The hill slopes were all covered



in colourful flowers and herbs and the air smelt of their


delightful fragrance! And now… “Look around you”, the sad


aluminium foil continued. “Rubbish everywhere… What a shame!”

“Do you, by any chance, know that if you go on polluting the


place, you’ll surely get ill yourselves?”, another weird, faint



voice asked the two girls.




“Who’s speaking now?”, Sophia, the second little girl, asked in


amazement. By the way, Sophia in Hellenistic philosophy was


honored as a goddess of wisdom.

“I used to be a wise book. But my pages were viciously torn and



my heart was broken. Now I’m only a piece of useless paper”,


said a small, yellowish piece of paper sadly!




“And do you happen to know that I’ll soon end up in the landfill,


like all the other rubbish, and I may not be able to see you



again?”, another weird, faint voice asked the two friends!




“But who else is here with us?”, Elpis and Sophia wondered.

“I can be in various shapes. You can see me as a bottle or a pin


or a toy! It’s easy to understand what I am”, a dirty bottle said



feeling proud of being able to have so many uses!



Sophia and Elpis put their heads together and started thinking



and thinking! “What can we do to stop this?”, Sophia said. “Let’s


find a way to reduce all this rubbish and make something useful



out of it”, Elpis added.

That’s right! This is what they would have to do:


REduce and REuse! They’d heard it at school



before and there was also a special word for


this: “RECYCLE” was the word their teacher



kept telling them! But how could they do it?

It only took Elpis a couple of days to come up with a wonderful



idea! They’d make a robot out of rubbish, which would collect



and separate the rubbish in the area, thus cleaning Sparkclean


planet!




“Fantastic idea!!!”, the aluminium tinfoil cried out! “I volunteer


for being the robot”, it said without the least hesitation!




“Of course! You’ll be THE BRAIN of the robot”, Sophia said


while laughing out loud!

The two girls got down to work. They looked for hours and


days and months till they eventually found the most


suitable, precious pieces of rubbish they needed in order to



construct their robot. When you can dream it, you can do it



and so could do the two friends!

They managed to build a


unique robot. They’d call it



“REA”, like Titan Rea in



ancient Greek mythology, who


was responsible for the way


things flow in the kingdom of



Cronus.

As soon as everything was ready, they set off for the King’s


Palace. They were really looking forward to telling him


their idea and presenting the magic REA. The King was



over the moon with joy! At last! His planet would be clean



again!

REA went out on its mission right away! And so did the



people, who started cleaning Sparklcean again. They made


special recycling bins in order to collect recyclable



objects. They even made laws and fined all those who did


not comply and threw rubbish without respecting the



environment. People got used to recycling little by little


and it soon became part of their daily routine.

The trees and flowers started blooming again and Sparkclean


Planet very quickly changed for the better. Its King was happy



and cheerful again because what he could see was a cleaner


planet! And so happily all the people in Sparkclean live



nowadays that hardly anyone remembers those gloomy, filthy,


full of rubbish years they went through.

Only in fairy tales is it now mentioned that rubbish once


plagued this beautiful planet and some people believe it while



others don’t, as it always happens with fairy tales! What is


certain, though, is that everybody in Sparkclean has been



living happily ever since!!!
