Wasting our world

我们赖以生存的环境,需要大家共同努力来呵护


WASTE paper and used Coke cans are thrown out anywhere and everywhere. You might have seen plastic bags (塑料袋) flying in the sky when the wind blows and getting caught in the trees (挂在树上).

Or maybe you've seen old cans sitting in rivers and polluting the water.

Our environment, the place we live in, is being ruined (毁灭) by us.

Believe it or not, every family in China makes about one ton (吨) of rubbish every year. That's over 100 million tons of rubbish in China alone (独自地). It is enough to fill a line of 10-ton trucks that goes around the world almost five times.

All this rubbish makes our soil (土壤), our water and our air dirty. And so it affects (影响) our health. Bad habits, such as dropping litter, add to this problem. Many people think that dropping one small piece of chewing gum (口香糖) doesn't matter too much.

But, did you know that nearly 600,000 pieces of gum were stuck to Tian'anmen Square during the last National Day holiday? It cost 0.2 yuan to remove (除掉) each piece. And it will take many years for the stains (污迹) of gum to disappear (消失).

So it is clear that we can not go on living like this. We need to cut down on our waste. This world is ours. It is our only world. And it is the job of every person to make an effort to save it.


HELP
believe it or not: 信不信由你
add to: 增加,加重
stick to: 粘住
cut down: 减少
make an effort to do: 努力去做
