[SCIE web news, November 13th, 2016] In order to reduce our footprint on earth, we need to make sure that we can start from the small cases around us, such as in our school and at our home.
We can utilize effective methods to protect our atmosphere as much as possible. Above all, since paper has already become a part of our life, we can recycle the paper after using it and reuse it if it hasn’t been filled in. Students also emphasized that it is better not to use the printer if possible, since there is a great much of derelict paper in school library. What’s more, school is also able to save electricity through appoint students managing classroom’s light and projector.
Moreover, it is an awesome way to decrease school’s expenditure by letting students switch off the projector and light when it’s no longer in use.
Last but not least, teachers are able to reduce the usage of paper by changing some paperwork to electronic form. Every student in our school has at least one electronic device, therefore it is entirely unnecessary to have all of our work finish in paper instead of electronic version.
On the other hand, we ought to protect the environment by decreasing the energy we waste at home. One of the biggest problems we faced is that we have too many plastic bags at home and it will cause fierce consequence after using it. Therefore, it will be much better to change these bags to paper bags and reuse them for many times. The other way to avoid environmental impact is to use solar power if possible. Burning fossil fuel has stepped an enormous footprint in our daily life so utilize other types of energy is a fantastic method to prevent the worsening of the situation.
Every one started to realize how important it is to enhance everyone’s social responsibility and protect our homeland. Reuse, reduce and recycle have already brand in our mind. We believe that we will greet a bright, new world in the future through improve people’s awareness on ecological footprint.
