a) People have been throwing away more and more electronic devices. – TRUE

“E-waste, or electronics garbage, is the fastest growing section of the U.S. trash stream. In 2007, Americans discarded more than 112,000 computers daily, according to the 10 Environmental Protection Agency” (Lines 8-10)

b) A majority of electronic devices are being recycled. – FALSE

“Even worse, just 18 percent of discarded televisions and computer products were collected for recycling.” (Lines 10-11)

c) Dumping electronic devices can be dangerous. – TRUE

“When improperly disposed of—i.e. dumping, burning, etc.—these chemicals can seep into the surrounding environment, harming humans, crops, and ecosystems," says Lin. (Lines 14-15)

d) Lin believes in repairing computers rather than recycling them – TRUE 

“However, once Lin and his team discovered that reusing computers was much more efficient than recycling, they decided to create a computer-refurbishing program.” (Lines 28-29)

4. Focus on lines 23 to 36 and give three examples of Lin and his team’s actions.

Holding recycling drives; 

“We worked with Metech International to hold an e-waste recycling drive that collected over 21,000 pounds of electronics” – (Lines 23-24)

The creation of a computer refurbishing program;

“… they decided to create a computer-refurbishing program.” (Line 29)

They undertook a media campaign;

“Lin and his WIN Team sent out thousands of fliers, made radio announcements, wrote 35 articles for local newspapers, and made presentations in front of both student and town council audiences” (Lines 34-36)

5. Explain in your own words who benefited from their refurbishing initiative and how they felt about it (20 words +/- 10%).

Poorer students in the area are benefitting from the initiative and they are very excited and enthusiastic about it. (19 words)

9. Justify the following sentence with a quotation from the text.

Having famous people taking part in a campaign has already been done before.

There is little new about using celebrities to promote causes, of course, although this series has actors getting their hands dirty more than most prior efforts (Lines 8 -9)

10. Give two benefits of using celebrities in this programme (quote the text).

Two benefits of using celebrities can be seen in the text by:

They personify ideas and social issues – Line 14

They put a recognizable, individual face on a complex, systemic phenomenon like climate change and therefore make the issue connect with audiences, engaging them on the issue, and potentially mobilizing them to take action. (Line 14-17)

11. In your own words, briefly explain what is expected from the audiences (20 words +/- 10%).

The audience is expected to take note of what is being talked about and to act to combat climate change. (20 words)



12. Sum up briefly what both initiatives are fighting for (20 words +/- 10%).

Both initiatives are trying to make people more aware of climate issues and push them to act to protect the environment. (22 words)

13. Pick out the sentence that best describes the difference between the two initiatives.

The sentence that describes the difference between the two initiatives is:

a) One is about a modest personal initiative and the other is about a collective initiative


1. You are a journalist interviewing Lin about his past and present actions, his hopes for the future and his feelings. Imagine the interview.

Me: Lin, do you think that your actions with WIN from the beginning until today, have been successful?  

Lin: Certainly! We can see this in the fact that Rhode Island has passed Bill H7789, banning the dumping of electronic good in the state.

M: So, where do you go from here? What are the next steps for you and your WIN team?

L: We are hoping to continue our campaign, to get people to think differently about their e-waste, but on a national level. I would like to see America adopt anti-dumping laws in every state, and not just Rhode Island. After this, why not the rest of the world! 

M : How do feel being at the origin of such a landmark movement such as Bill H7789. Are you proud of yourself? 

L:  I am very proud! At the beginning, I never imagined that something as simple as a student led project could have such an impact on the wider community. I am very aware however, that more needs to be done and I am committed to continuing the media campaign that we have begun to make people and councils more aware of the dangers and problems of e-waste.

2. What cause would you be ready to support? What celebrity would you choose to represent it and why?

I would like to support a cause working against obesity in children and teenagers. People’s lifestyles and eating habits are changing; children are eating less and less healthily and doing less and less physical activity, which can have dramatic consequences on young people’s futures.  It is for this reason that I would like to support an initiative to get young people more active and make them more aware of the risks in the future if they eat unhealthily today.

To support this scheme I would choose famous sports people who are known for their fitness and discipline. Someone like Olympic judoka Teddy Riner would be a good choice. To be an Olympic athlete, you must train very hard and avoid eating junk food. Furthermore, the fact that Teddy Riner is very recognisable means that he would be a very good representative for this cause.  

In addition to a sports personality, I would also choose a famous chef such as Philippe Etchebest to be the face of the initiative, as he is in a good position to help people learn how to cook healthy food and understand the benefits of eating a balanced diet.
