I believe we need to take care of our environment. Our environment is
changing from many different things. One cause is global warming.
Global warming is caused mainly by the things we do each day. When we use up our
resources, our environment will change.
When people drive they use up the resource of gasoline, if people took a
bus filled with people who aren’t driving their own cars, they would save
money and the environment. If you car pool with your friends you can save
too because everyone isn’t in separate cars. It doesn’t seem like you are
doing much, if you carpool or ride a bus everyday, but if most people try
it, it may make a difference to our environment.
Personally, I don’t think people are trying hard enough to save our
environment. I try to conserve electricity in my house by turning of the
lights whenever no one is using them. I think it makes a difference,
because the power plants don’t have to use up as much energy sending the
I also try to help our environment is by conserving water. If people took
shorter showers, and washed their cars using less water, everyone would be
conserving water. Our planet has only about 3 percent drinking water, so if
we use most of that washing cars, and taking long showers, we won’t have
anything else to drink.
I believe that if more people tried to save our environment, the bad
changes we created will decrease, and our world will become a better place
to live in.
