Speaker A: I think people should pay more attention to reusing materials. It’s the best way to save our planet’s resources. In fact, we don’t have any other option if we plan to leave the planet for generations to come. For example, it’s more environment-friendly to use linen napkins that can be washed and reused than to use paper products. It’s also important to stop using dangerous chemicals that spoil our soil and drinking water.
Speaker B: My name is Stephen. I’m very worried about high urban pollution. This problem is actually global. Anyone who went to Beijing to watch the Olympic games can confirm it as Beijing was covered day and night by strong smog. The problem is that this smog in big industrial megapolises is not set to decrease, but instead it will increase over the coming years: this will bring about pollution all over the world and will cause global warming!
Speaker С: I find the effect of water pollution on the ecological balance and human life really dramatic. Though there are many other things that are polluting water, oil is still the major contributor. There may be cases of large oil spills during transportation, but the fact is that small motor oil spills on land are far more dangerous. So it’s important that we take measures in time to save our water environment.
Speaker D: My name is Barbara. I’ve only been “cleaning green” for over a year now. It was a difficult start. My daughter made me stop using toxic chemical products for cleaning by regularly telling me how I was poisoning our health, polluting the air in the house, damaging the planet and exposing my grandson to all of the above. Now I like it a lot! I will never go back to chemical cleaners, not any more.
Speaker E: I support the idea of using only natural products for cleaning purposes. Of course it’s not easy. Changing from old habits to new healthy, non-toxic ones takes time and practice. It’s like any bad habit, once it’s been done we feel really good about ourselves. But we’re not doing this for some unseen stranger. We’re doing it for ourselves. Let’s leave our planet in the best possible shape we can by all working out and following new rules together.
Speaker F: I think everyone can do their part to protect our planet. It’s easier than you may think — do not litter and do not dispose your waste in the way that will harm people or animals. Always use the proper method for it. And it’s really more useful to put out different bins for different waste materials like glass, plastic bottles, paper and tins. The bins are usually of different colours to be easily identified.
