Sixteen thousand – Martina Ricciotti – International

    Sixteen thousand – Martina Ricciotti – International

    When we were working on this problem, we read that the sandpiper, a small wading bird with a reddish head, is capable of flying 16,000 km, and we almost couldn’t believe it. Have you ever walked 16,000 km? This is about the distance between Naples and Sydney, Australia.

    The cover article for this issue tells us that many birds can fly from one part of the planet to another by orienting themselves thanks to the magnetic field, stars, and the shape of coasts, rivers, and mountains.

    On page 28, we instead talk about super-fast fashion: buying clothes that cost so little isn’t always a good idea. A new magazine for girls and boys from Sweden, which we discovered this month, talks about the environmental consequences of our purchases. The article also contains the golden rule to avoid buying useless things: keep your wardrobe tidy. It seems like trivial advice, but this way you avoid buying countless duplicates of your T-shirts, sweatshirts, panties, and socks.

    On page 56, however, we discover that this process should never take place during the weekend: these are days that must be devoted to complete idleness and one must do absolutely nothing, not even homework. Tell that to the teachers.
