Rubbish is a big problem in our society. I suggest that people should recycle materials. We should
recycle paper, plastic bottles, batteries, and other materials that are reusable. We have to take care of our
planet. We have to save water, electricity and other natural resources. We must love our nature and take
care of it.


The environmental pollution

The environmental problem is a global problem that concerns us all. How to solve the problem of waste
and environmental pollution?

The prevention of pollution or pollution control input, is a production solution, which reduces or
eliminates the production of pollutants, often changing chemicals or using less harmful processes.

Contamination can be avoided (or at least reduce) with four "Rs" of the use of resources: Reject: do not
use, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Environment (what should and should not do).

You should plant a tree every year.

You should get your own cup of coffee.
