Everyday around our cities and towns people are recycling cans, newspaper, and plastic containers. If we are already doing things to improve our environment why should we need to have a new law passed stating how we recycle our trash? Careful- make a mistake, and you will be fined. Those fines, along with the increased taxes to pay for the services and personnel, make this a bad idea for taxpayers. In my own home we recycle newspapers and cans. the cans go in one
Reading this essay has made me more aware of how wasteful we all can be. It goes into detail of what we waste and how often. If we know a way we can “waste not” we should make that change and encourage our loved ones to do the same. It starts with us. Take in consideration the time and things used when building your new home, go paperless when given the option and always remember it 's never too late to make a change. This essay was written over 5 years ago and to look at how much is still being wasted is shocking. Things have improved since then but things could also be much better. If we motivate and educate each other to save and not waste as much we began to notice our improvement and maybe even make headlines. The essay “ Waste Not, Want Not” by Bill McKibben was very informative and motivational. It makes you think how many of the things that we are used to are causing harm to our environment. I will definitely be making changes in my lifestyle and motiving the people around me so that we will one day be able to notice
The first attempt and success to climb Mt. Everest occured in 1953. Since then, almost 4,000 people have been able to scale the mountain, but over 230 people have not been able to climb it successfully. There is a chance of accident or death when climbing this mountain or any dangerous activity. All people should should have the right to rescue services even if they knowingly put themselves at risk because there is always a chance of an accident happening, rangers are there to save people in danger, and there are rescue vehicles being produced to be used in case of an emergency.
“Ask not what your country can do for you ask what you can do for your country” JFK said in a speech . What I would do for the USA, is to help the environment by picking up trash and other items. Here are some more examples, saving water and electricity are the biggest problems. We can also clean up the parks and streets. So to do it, we could have signs to tell people to take care of the earth by recycling. The following are reasons why recycling is important to America; one, so we don 't cut down so many trees, two, it saves energy, three, previous global warming reduces water pollution, and five, it reduces waste. All of this keeps the country a nice place to live, work, play, and make friends. We take advantage of the freedom,
The Freshman 15 is a thought that crosses the minds of most future college students, but most say that it won’t happen to them. This fear of losing a toned body after graduating high school bothers some more than others. They realize after high school there are no longer athletics, and they’ll no longer be exercising regularly. Also, when they depart from their parents house and begin to live on their own their eating habits change. Responsibilities change when at college and this can cause stress and weight change. A change in diet and not eating properly can cause someone to gain weight. Not to mention that sleeping habits change dramatically when you go to college. The first thing that comes to people’s minds when they hear “freshman 15” is drinking alcohol, but this isn’t the only factor in the problem. This is a problem for these future students, and there isn’t just one solution to it. Many of the solutions to this problem are daily habits that could be changed easily while at college.
Over the past years littering has become quite a concern for our nation. Everywhere we look and especially during the rainy season, we see rubbish in the muddy water. This happens when we litter without concern. But have we thought about the damage we are doing to the environment?
Imagine living in a world where the air is polluted and most people are afraid to step outside their front door, in the near future, this may be reality for Americans. Americans throw out over 200 million tons of garbage a year, yet recycle not nearly as much. Most people do not realize it but recycling is a vital part of America’s society and if Americans do not perform this action, it will backfire on them. People in America are debating whether Americans are recycling enough and correctly.

The amount of plastic products that ended up in the ocean as of 2015 are quite high. How high you may ask yourself? No not 1 million but 9 million tons of plastic waste laid in the ocean as of 2015. Who could be responsible for most of this plastic in the ocean? Surprisingly its china, they are responsible for 2.4 million tons per year. That 's 30 percent of the global total. The top countries most responsible for the plastic pollution issue are as following, China, The Philippines, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Egypt, Malaysia, Nigeria, and Bangladesh.What are we gonna do about it? Switch bag materials or don 't even provide bags just make the people bring their own bags and then they can continue to reuse them and then we won 't have the issue of plastic ending up in the ocean. Innocent animals we haven 't even discovered yet are dying because people can 't walk 10 feet to a trash can. If you could save your mothers life by walking a couple yards to the nearest trash can would you? Of course you would! Dumping plastics into our oceans is a huge problem for our environment and the people that live in it.
Recycling is a great idea for it 's a way to make the environment a better place, im a pro for the no recycling laws for Gatesburg. If the law passed it would criminalize violations of its complicated rules. Why would we want someone to tell us how to live our life or having to be worried about being fined for putting an item in the wrong bin. Yet they want to increase out taxes to pay for the services they think is right. This law proposal requires a radio-freguency identification computer chips to the recycling bins is an invasion of our privacy, it tracks the pounds we throw in there every day and if its over the normal amount summons the trash police to check to see if we threw a recycle item in the trash barrel? Why would we pay more to
“Food waste is an atrocity that is reducible, if not completely avoidable.” -Stephen Hough a famous composer once said. Food is a precious item many people do not have access to. Yes, you may have a surplus amount of food, but one should think about how much of that food do you waste. That food could go to the poor, unassuming and haggard people in society. Food can be bought and wasted because of the ample amounts bought. Although, one may not give to the poor people of the world, food can be gone to compost, or can be used to make new food. Many belittle the fact that food waste is harmful to society. The first article, “U.S. throws away half of all food produce” By Suzanne Goldenberg explains how Fresh produce is often wasted in fields,warehouses,supermarkets,restaurants,and refrigerators. The second article, “How Norway is selling out-of-date food to help tackle waste” By Daniel Boffey shows A supermarket in Norway which is dedicated to selling expired and old food.

The world is experiencing a dilemma today. Many people suffer from hunger, malnutrition, and other problems caused by the lack of sufficient food. However, many other people buy or order excessive foods and waste a lot. In my community, food waste is much more serious than food shortage, and it is easy to see that people throw foods in the dustbin and the foods indeed are still eatable. Food waste is a serious problem. It not only wastes money but also causes some environmental problems, such as pollution and rats. However, many people do not realize the problem now. Considering that food waste is troubling, it is important to initiate a movement to motivate residents to reduce food waste, and the movement can be carried out through reeducatice and facilitative strategies.
To begin with, people should recycle because it protects our living area, Earth. First, recycling can cut down pollution.

People tend to consume a lot, when there is consumption, there is waste – and that waste becomes a big problem that needs taken care of, which costs a lot of time, space and resources. If not managed, in turn, the world that we live in will become a hazardous place for all living things. According to the World Bank, people throughout the world, “spend $2.3 trillion a year on food and beverages alone” (Global Consumption Database, 2018), that is quite a lot. In addition to that, the world count mentions that, “we throw out over 50 tons of household waste every second. A number that will double by 2030” (The World Counts, 2018).
