Good Morning to my English Language Teacher and my fellow friends. I stand here today to give a speech entitled “Things That You Can Do to Save the Environment “. Our environment is facing a serious level of pollution. We are also experiencing the phenomenon known as Global Warming. I am sure all of you have seen effects and heard the facts about it. So what can you, as individuals do about it ? Can you play a role in saving our already polluted environment? Yes, you can.
Start by doing these simple things. Firstly, recycle as much of your rubbish as you can. You can do this by following these steps. Sort the rubbish at home. Pack recyclable things like plastics bottles, old newspaper, tin cans, and cardboard boxes separately. Then, take them to a recycling centre. You can do this at least once a month. Next, do not practice the open burning of rubbish. Dispose rubbish in rubbish bins. This rubbish collector wil dispose the rubbish that they collect at landfills.
Organic waste can be made into compost. You can learn how to make your own compost through internet. Another easy thing that you can do is to save electricity. Turn off lights, fans, and other appliances when not in use. Practice this both at home and in the school too. When you save electricity, you save the fuel burned to produce the power at power stations. This cuts down on harmful gases like carbon dioxide that are released into the atmosphere.
Lastly, plant more trees and other plants in order to stabilise the ecosystem. This is because plants release oxygen into the atmosphere that is needed for human beings and animals. Besides that, plants also do absorb harmfum gases that is released into in atmosphere. These are just a few simple things that you can do.
