  • Thank you, though I id like decorated labels of things in class, much-loved when in Khoekhoegowab

  • A very cool idea. Thank you! I will definitely draw up such a planner with my family. We are apprehensive about the future of our planet and therefore are constantly organizing various events to collect garbage and the processing of various materials. Also, popularize movement repeated use of waste.
