Клековкина Е., Манн
Comment on the following statement:
| Many people argue that ordinary people can do a lot to help the environment, including recycling materials and preventing waste. However, this depends on towns providing facilities for recycling and educating people on the need to help the environment, which some people think is too expensive. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that if government educates people on the matter of environmental problems they can help (to) solve many of them, whereas others say that it is too complicated and expensive to do.
I think that providing facilities and education to people on environmental issues are worth doing. First of all, if people know what to do and how to keep the environment clean, they will definitely do it. It is not a big deal for every one to invest some time and energy into helping to protect nature. Second, usually people want to take part in something that is important not only for them personally but for the whole society. So, if government shows the way to solve the ecological problems, people will be happy to help.
There are those who say that educating people on ecological subjects is not cheap and it is better to keep things as they are.
Well, it is expansive only in the beginning. When the majority of people know what to do and how to do it, it is going to be far easier and less expansive to keep everything working.
In conclusion, I would like to say that there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight, recycling and education is expensive, but in actual fact, people are part of nature’s environment in the sense that their health and emotional state depend on it and its problems are their problems. Thus, people have to take part in helping the environment no matter how expensive it might be.
