Topic: Ways to Protect the Environment
Nowadays, environment issues are become more seriously. It’s very important for us to protect the environment. Good environment can make people feel happy and fit. To improve the environment means to improve our life. Therefore, human beings can protect the environment in three ways: conserving water, recycling, reducing, reusing and saving energy. First, human beings can protect the environment through saving water. Water is very important to us because we can’t live without water. Water which is suitable to drink is becoming less and less. It is because we always waste a lot of water in our daily life. For example, many of the people always turn on the tap when brushing teeth. In fact, we must turn off the tap when brushing teeth and use a cup to fill water for gargle. If we can do this, it can save a family 5 to 10 gallons per day. Besides that, we also can conserve water in the kitchen. For example, we must don’t let faucets run for washing or rinsing, we can fill a container with water or use the sink by stoppering the drain and wash all the vegetables for a meal at the same time. Moreover, we should not rely on the force of water to washing anything. Instead, we can use a brush or your hand to dislodge particles of dirt (University of Illinois Extension, 2010). Furthermore, check and fix any water leaks frequently, not only conserving water but also saving the money (SEQL, n.d.)
