Improving the Environment Essay

by Su jin
(Seoul )

Individuals can do nothing to improve the environment. Only governments and large companies can make a difference.

To what extent do you agree or disagree?


In this modern era where technology and industrialization has highly developed, keeping the environment safe and clean has become a big concern for human kind. Some people say that governments and large companies should play a big role to protect the nature and take appropriate measures to solve the problems. In my opinion individuals can also contribute to the nature protection on their own level.

First of all, one of the main issues that we encounter today is air pollution and the smoke of factories and cars is the main cause of it. Thus in order to reduce the air pollution people should use public transport instead of private cars to commute to the work. In this way the number of cars will be decreased and so will be the harmful smoke that they emit to the air.

Secondly, the second biggest problem is the garbage. We can reduce garbage by recycling the materials and reuse it. Thus people should sort out the garbage and throw them away properly. Some wastes such as bottles and plastic papers take centuries to get absorbed into the soil and harm the animal habitat for a long time. Therefore, recycling the bottles, cans and using paper bags instead of plastic ones could be the answer to it.

At last, some of our earth's energy resources such as electricity, food supply, water are non-renewable. Thus it would be better if we consider consuming energy supplies properly by turning off the light and other electronic devices when not using them and saving water by closing tap after use.

In conclusion, however, protecting the environment is a big topic it is not that far from our lives. In other words individuals surely can help to improve the condition by doing minor habitual things including using a public transport, recycling, saving energy and so on. Our future is in our hands. If we do not start implementing and influencing others in protecting our mother nature then who would be in responsible of it.
