Write An Essay On Protection Of Environment

What a great topic for discussion - one that we should be having on a regular basis to ensure everyone becomes exposed in some way to 'reduce, reuse, recycle'  as pointed out by "pophnei."

What a great topic for discussion - one that we should be having on a regular basis to ensure everyone becomes exposed in some way to 'reduce, reuse, recycle'  as pointed out by "pophnei."

One of the ways to do this is through education. Children need to learn the importance of recycling, not just from their parents, but in their school environment. Learning by example is also paramount. Schools (and I know some do) and community organizations should have comprehensive programs in place to encourage and support waste management. How simple is it to rinse bottles and tins, squash them and recycle them along with newspaper and paper - especially considering the volumes of these items in schools. I know plastic is more challenging but we're overcoming that problem too - through education.

Also print less from the computer, save your e-statements to a 'stick' instead of copying them, dry your clothes naturally whenever possible ( a reliance on technology can make us lazy!!). What about turning off the TV and engaging in some good, old-fashioned conversation?? 

Some schools hear the mention of the words 'support programs' when it comes to getting involved and envisage enormous set-up costs. However, it is very inexpensive to set up programs for recycling and space is a bigger issue as waste needs to be separated. To the many schools that do already do this, that's great and it is up to parents to then ensure that the environment at home is conducive to continuing the recycling process. Again, a cheap but life-changing process!   

Repurposing is a new catch - word and can be added to the 'reduce, reuse, recycle' mantra. It's exciting to see old, seemingly useless objects turned into new furniture and so on with minimal effort, a little bit of vision and without any harmful effects on the environment.

And let's not forget all the natural resources out there. It's time for

the arrogance of humanity

to have a reality check and for us all to do our own little bit.

So let's educate and innovate - even on a small scale - and make our contribution.   

 


Protecting the Environment
by Branko

Every company should invest in our environment. We live in a time when the environment is in danger, so it is important to protect it. We need a healthy environment in order to survive, so we must protect it. We need to protect the environment now to help prevent health problems, to maintain the ecosystem, and to preserve the Earth for our children.

Pollution from factories and cars can cause damage to the environment. It makes the air dirty. Breathing this dirty air causes health problems, particularly for children and the elderly. Pollution not only increases spending on health care, but also decreases working ability. We need to control the amounts of pollution we produce in order to prevent health problems.

We also need to pay attention to the ecosystem. Plant life, animal life, and people all depend on each other. An unhealthy environment disturbs this ecosystem. For example, changes in the environments might cause a certain kind of plant to die. If that plant is food for a certain kind of animal, the animal will die too. If people use that animal as food source, there could be big problem. To avoid the big problems, factories should pollute as little as possible and use natural resources rationally.

If we do not protect our environment it will continue to get worse and our children will suffer the consequences. The air and water will be dirtier, natural resources will become scarcer, and more plants and animals will die. Our children won’t have as much natural beauty to admire. Even worse, their well-being will be threatened.

Without clean air to breathe, a healthy ecosystem, and a future for our children, the human race will not survive. That is why protecting our environment is important. If we have a healthy environment not only the company is going to make a profit but also workers, customers and community.
