Seven years ago, a planet twelve space sectors away from Earth, had been devastated by uncontrollable waste. This waste had destroyed the ecosystems and plant life, the surface had become a barren wasteland and no one could survive the toxic, poisonous gases. The only option was to abandon the planet and start a new. Bo and Zowi, brother and sister, who are survivors of the devastated planet, have been tasked with helping inhabitants of other planets to understand the importance of recycling, so they could avoid what had happened to them.
Scanners sound throughout the spaceship. "Bo, the global surface report is showing that this planet has a vast population and they too are at the early stages of waste destruction"
Bo lifted his eyes from a screen displaying the blue and green globe remembering his own planet, which had once looked like this one. "We need to warn them Zowi! We cannot let this world be destroyed like ours because of waste. What does the technical WEEE recycling report show? Do they have any form of electrical equipment that can be recycled?"
A beeping sound resonates throughout the spacecraft. "That's the scan complete, data coming through now. It looks like the people of this world have a large number of unused electrical communication equipment that could be recycled. They call them mobile phones."
With excitement, Bo jumped from his seat and moved towards Zowi's screen. "Ok Zowi we should land on this planet and help show these people how they can reuse their mobile phones!"
Another beep sounds from one of the screens "Bo, it appears that the people of this planet use something called cash to purchase items – perhaps we should use the WEEE recycling technology to recycle their old phones and reward them with cash"
"That's an excellent idea Zowi. The more modern the device the more cash we will be able to generate and we can recycle the phone so others can use it. Configure the WEEE recycling system and bring us into land"
Bo and Zowi's spaceship manoeuvres towards Earth's atmosphere. 30 seconds until landing Bo. We will be landing in an open area, detecting live forms. Computer data indicates these are humans"
Various beeps and the sound of the metal moving resonant as the small craft prepares to land on the surface of Earth.
"Open external communication channels" Bo exclaims as he moves back to his seat.
"We will be landing in 5, 4, 3, 2 and set down. Systems now ready for you to communicate. I have accessed one of their major communication networks: the World Wide Web"
Sitting upright and looking eager Bo starts to broadcast his welcome message "Greetings Earth friends, we are Bozowi. We have come to help you recycle your waste. We will recycle your old phones so others can benefit and pay you in cash for your help. Together we will help save this planet from waste! We will help keep it clean, fresh and beautiful."
