The following is a student's response to the question: "What can you do to solve the environmental issues?"

I think we should save electricity, gas and water.  I have two reasons for this.
First, it is essential to stop global warming.  Supplying electricity and using gas release much CO2 into the atmosphere.  So, I always turn off TV and light when I don't use them.  Also, I use extra heat for cooking.  These action is effective to save energy, I think.
Second, we have torotect various creatures and beautiful scenery.  This is because they are being broken by people who build dams and dig natural gas.  People do these things because people need a lot of energy.  I have ever seen some pictures of animals which suffer from environmental destrution.
Because of these, I think it is proper for people to save energy.

The following is a student's response to the question; "What can you do to solve the environmental issues?"

I think that the activity to reduce plastic will make a good world.  I have two reasons why I think so.
Firstly, burning the plastic emits a lot of CO2.  And the process needs a lot of time.  Therefore, theplastic is not good for the environment.
Secondly, the plastics make ocean dirty.  Sometimes, people throwthe plastic waste to the ocean.  The waste can't melt quickly.  Therefore, the plastic waste flow in the oceanfor a long time.  And, some fishes and ocean animalseat the waste, and they are killed.  Sometimes we may eat the fish whicheat the waste.  It is dangerous for our health.  So, we need to reduce the plastic thrown into the ocean.
For the above reasons, I believe that we shouldreduce theplastic waste to solve our environmental problem.

The following is a student's response to the question: "What can we do to solve the environmental issues?"

 

I think that 3Rs can solve the environmental issues.  "3Rs" means Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.  I'll introdue two examples.
First, you can reduce trash by using eco-bags.  Eco-bags are thing that you can use when you go shopping to a supermarket.  Eco-bags can reduce trash that would be produced by using plastic bags.  My mother didn'T use an eco-bag before knowing 3R.  But since she knew 3R, she started using an eco-bag.  I also take an eco-bag when I go shopping.
Second, you can recycle things such as paper, plastic bottles and so on.  You can throw away such things into recycling boxes.  Then,by douing so, they can be recycled and used as another thing.
I believe that 3R works for the better environment like these two examples.  3R can give the world good influence.

The following is a student's essay about "What can we do to improve the environment?"

Global warming is now gaining attentionas one of the global issues.  I think it is good for each family to take part in activities.  For example, we should keep the air conditioner at a low degree.  We should not leave water running.  While my father is brushing his teeth, he always leave water running.  When I see him doing so, I stop the running water, saying, "Don't leave the water running!  Don't waste it."  Then, he came not to do so. It is important for each of us to be careful about everything in our life.

Also, the forests destroyed for the benifit and livelihood of people are increasing. I was sad to hear the news that a koala got a serious burn because of slash-and-burn farming in Australia.  I think it is threatening not only the environment but also animal life.  Tree planting is effective.  Animals and insects can get homes again and decreasethe amount of CO2.

Therefore, we should continue to think about living with nature.

The following is a student's response to the question, "What can we do to protect the environment?"

Japan is working on solving the environmental issues.  It's important to consider the way to solve them.  Then, I came up with the idea.  It is that people in the world grow up their own trees.  There are two reasons.

First, plants produce oxygen, but they are decreasing now.  It's because people don't plants after they cut and use them.  Then, all people grow trees, and then they can increase them.

Second, plants can be some creatures' homes.  It's necessary for us to preserve them.

For these reasons, I think the idea that dpeople all over the world own their trees will solve the environmental issues.

The following is a student's response to the question, "What can you do to improve the environment?"

I think that it is good for the environment to pick up a trash.  I have two reasons.

Firstly, if we do that, the places where we pick up trsh will be clean.  I joined a volunteer work on the last summer vacation. After the firwork festival, I went to the river bank and picked up trash.  It was very early morning, so I was sleepy.  I wanted to finish.  But when my teacher said to me, "There was no trash.  This place is clean.  It's thanks to you," I was happy.  I thought it is good to pick up trash.

Secondly, it is easy to pick up trash.  Even small children can do.  And even for a short time, we can do.  So we should pick up trash for the environment.

In this way, I think it is effective to pick uptrash.  So I want to join volunteer activities from now on.  And I want to pick up trash in many places such as schools and parks myself.  To pick up trash is easy and we feel good when the places are cleaned.  So it is effective.

I like sunny days, but I like a little chilly weather better than very humid one, because a little chilly weather is very comfortable to run a marathon.  So I think a sunny day in fall is suitable for taking exercise.  From the above, my favorite weather is sunny and a little chilly one.

My favorite weather is sunny.  In a sunny weather, I always want to walk out.  I can feel warm while walking outside.  When I feel warm, I can be relaxed and be fine.  In winter, very strong wind runs toward me and trees.  When the wind blows, many leaves leave the trees and they seem to feel cold.

My favorite store is "GEO."  You can borrow DVDs, CDs and comic books, and buy them too.  I often buy used DVDs of varietyshows andmovies.  They are cheaper than other stores'.  If they are not in good condition, thestore guarantees them.  These days DVDs at the shop are getting more and more expensive because of the increased rate of consumption tax.

My favorite store is LAWSON.  It is one of the convenience stores.  It was used as a mild store in the past.  Therefore, its symbol is a bottle of milk.  It sells "Karaage-kun," or fried chicken.  I like it, but the goods are a little expensive there.
