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.

The foollowing is a studetnt's response to the question, "What's your opinion about school uniforms for high school students?"

School uniforms has a bad side.  For example, a difference of male or female.  Most school uniforms are divided into pants or skirts.  And teachers often ban male students to wear skirts and female students to wear pants.  The young can't wear proper uniforms they think.  Compulsion of school uniforms sometimes becomes a sexual discrimination.  Noweadays, a lot of people make their own sexual orientation public.  We should understand and accept them.

I think it is a good point of school uniforms that we don't have to choose clothes to go to school everyday.  I am for school uniforms.  I have two reasons to support my opinon.  First, they enable us to save several minutes to choose clothes.  Students are very busy.  Second, wearing schol uniforms is economical.  We don't need to buy many clothes.  School uniforms should be changed, because Japanese clomate has changed.  Old-fashioned designs such as sailor suit or gakuran are difficult to suit the change of temperature.

The following is a student's response to the question, "What's your opinion about school uniforms for high school students?"

School uniforms make us feel part of the group.  It prevents discrimination based on clothes and saves time, effort and money.  There's no need to buy new clothes or think about what to wear.  Uniforms could help us study and "get into concentration mode" in a way how our roms might slow down our studying becayse it's a place of comfort.  Bad sides include no chances to express individuality or uniqueness.  Teenagers are at a point of their lives where they have to discover themselves but uniforms hinder that development.  Uniforms also makes us identifiable, which in turn represents the school.  Since it's possible to five the schol a bad reputaion, it calls for stricter rules.  Strict rules make the atmosphere unconfortable, where as wearing our own clothes would ake  us feel relaxed, and of course people are more comfortable if they get to choose what to wear.  I'm not against school uniforms, but I think there is an alternative solution.

It is often said that school uniforms make it difficult to express individuality.  I'm sometimes convinced of the idea and think that I want to wear my favorite clothes, but now I'm not against school uniforms.  One day, I had a chance to visit a nursing home.  I talked with the elderly and then, she said to me, "Your school unifrm reminds me of my school life."  She told me a lot of her experiences of her school life.  The school life is different from present school life.  However, my school u niform connects present with the past.  I think not changing thins like school uniforms are important.  Tradition connects various things.
