Conservation and Preventing Pollution; Prevention of Pollution
To me, conservation is when you recycle,
prevent waste and pollution, and reuse things that are still good.
Something I do in my home is to save up toilet paper rolls. I
started this project because I noticed that they were numerous in
the trash and I knew the garbage could be reduced. Sot save them to
use in my craft projects.
I read in a geography
book that conservation is not just recycling and preventing
pollution. but it is also "the protection of natural resources." One
thing that a neighbor does in my community is every spring she
cleans up this little "island" in the middle of my street. This
"island" consists of some signs such as "STOP"
and "Watch Children", a mailbox, and a bunch of weeds. But every
spring she turns those weeds into a fresh patch of blooming flowers
and adds a little fake bunny. She does her part in our community!
Another problem that
exists is that our neighborhood is often really messy with trash!
Every day I see trash! On the sidewalks! In the streets! On
people's property! I believe that residents should do something
about it! Is it so had to go out for ten minutes for a few days a
week and help your neighborhood by picking up trash'? I don't think
so. We must cut down on pollution! Not just my neighborhood' hut the
whole world. I have asthma and it is hard for me to breathe in areas
with smoke or pollution.
Chemicals in the air
also cause acid rain. Acid rain in the air destroys animals' homes
and kills fish it rivers and lakes. How can we help? Car pool.
Volunteer a few minutes each day! We can all become
