    environment From the other side some technology is really a hindrance in saving environment For example plastic bags which cannot be decomposed by soil and people use them every day in most countries It is really not good for our environment Therefore we can reduce using this kind of technology to improve the environment Avatar GOTO Free Books It s not what the planet can do for Avatar but what Avatar can do for the planet says James Cameron I almost see it as an opportunity for Avatar to be helpful as opposed to creating a situation for things to help Avatar he said To support the

of Global Warming how do you think you can do your part to Go Green By leonardcheah on 01 Jun 2010 Comment Like Report 28 Comments weeshengyi There are a few ways I can do my part in order to go green One of the ways would be purchasing eco friendly products Another suggestion is to reduce reuse and recycle I think we can practice the 3R s in our daily lives such as recycling used papers I would also try to participate in the Earth s Day As we are now facing the issue of Global Warming we can actually do alot for our gaia so le ts work hard together to save the mother nature weeshengyi Sorry is mother s nature weeshengyi Sorry for typing wrongly It should be let s So sorry nicholasho Some ways to contribute are to use Fluorescent light bulbs instead of the normal ones as it is more energy efficient and give out about as much light too One way is to bring along your own plastic bags frequently when heading down to the supermarket to purchase the daily necessities so as to save the costs in manufacturing more plastic bags to serve people s needs Another way is to try to educate people about the issues relating to golbal warming to increase their awareness Hence with more people being aware about the problems caused by gloal warming they will do their part to contibute and perhaps spread the word to others too xinrui First in order to reduce the usage of tissue I can bring along handkerchief to wherever I go If really unavoidable I can use one ply of tissue at a time Other than that I can also switch off the lights whenever I leave my room I also try not to sleep with the air conditioner on at night I usually take public transport to school and also share a same transport with my friends if we have the same destination in mind Moreover I try my best to dine in everytime Taking away food will waste resources If I really need to take away the food I will bring along a reusable container Besides I will collect the water that i used for laundry and cooking to reuse them wisely For example I use the water after laundry to flush the toilet bowl after using it and water the plants using the water which I use to clean vegetables To avoid using plastics bag which is a non degradable material I will bring along a recycle bag when i go shopping The most impoertan thing is I will not litter anywhere and will dispose the rubbish in a proper way There are still a lot of ways for me to do a part in go green but I will try my best to make contribution to the environment lm1625 A Composition of Protect Our Environment Taking good care of our environment is very important Wherever you live You can do something around your neighbourhood Like don t waste the water turn off the faucet immediatly if you do not use it and we can use the water which clean the vegetable flush the toilet bowl And not use plastic bag and Disposable chopsticks we can use our own recucle bag If we saw the rubbish on the street we can pick up and throw it in the dusbin it s our duty to keep our environment clean and tidy If everyone makes a contribution to protectingthe environment the world will become much more beautiful vine2 To fulfill my part to Go Green I can organise my trash bin into 3 categories Paper Plastic and Metal In the Paper bin I can throw unwanted papers such as brochures Plastic containers that I got from takeaways could be thrown into the Plastic bin and empty canned drinks would go into the Metal bin I would also suggest to Singapore Polytechnic to have recycling bins around the campus Furthermore when buying products I would chose to buy recycled foolscap paper correction fluid that is ozone safe and products that has Green labeling At home I would use the laptop rather than the computer as it consumes less electricity and I would plant some plants at the backyard cyk To Go Green we can first make recycling bins easily available to us by placing more bins around the neghbourhood This is due to the fact that most residents who wanted to recycle are unable to do so as they cannot locate the recycling bins and hence threw away their stuffs instead of recycling them Other than recycling we can use green and natural cleaning products for cleaning Green and natural cleaning products are biodegradable and toxin free hence aids in reducing environmental pollution yk leejunteck To me I do not think that education on future only works right now It is already too late for us if we only educate the next generation the dangers of global warming is coming head on to us If we wait until the next generation to Go Green Earth may be half gone by then So we should start practice many habits to help save the world now only if we do it now effects of global warming can be slowed and may even stop in the future As to what habits to practice there is already many commented on this page so i will not further elaborate When we are practicing all these Go Green habits it will also allow education to our future generations to do so too Education from our government is not enough only by education in the family will teach children to practice habits that will be beneficial to the Earth One example is Japan They have been doing it since last generation now the country is very conscious about the environment So I think that everyone must do their part right now so that they can save the Earth and further educate the next generation at the same time to allow more benefits to the Earth hlyl To do my part to Go Green it starts with our daily lifestyle When we buy things small things which does not requires a plastic bag we can do our part by not using so many plastic bags If needed we can even bring our own recycle bags to put our things so that less plastic bags are being used If all of us do our part we can reduce the usage of it and thus reduce pollution of the environment Not only that just a simple action of not littering can make a difference The recycling bins are there for a reason and we can do our part to Go Green by disposing our litter at the correct bin for recycling Lastly switching off the lights or fans when not in use is another way All these little actions can help our environment much The Earth hour is one good example where everyone in the world will off the lights for a perios of time Hence off all electrical appliances when not in use Let s Go Green Hannah jiiahuii Well not only teenagers are facing the issue of Global Warming Everyone on Earth are facing it and so as an individual we should save the earth by going green Firstly we can save our energy electricity by unplug appliances when we are not using them using compact fluorescent light bulb rather than those incandescent bulbs use cold water to wash clothes as 85 of the energy used in machine wash clothes is required to heat the water Secondly we can also save our water by taking shorter showers to reduce water usage Thridly we could reduce the amount of gas produce by walking riding a bicycle or taking the public transport to school Last but not least we should not be taking plastic bag when we are buying things Instead we should be using our own bag If everyone is responsible in going green i believe that the earth would recover slowly and not geeting more damaged JiaHui D kaycee There are alot of little things that we can do everyday to Go Green For example we can choose to take public transport instead of private transport to go to school or work everyday Switching off the lights when you are not using it and using fans instead of air conditioners also help to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases which will lead to global warming We should all do our part in saving the Earth to ensure that certain species of organisms do not get extinct Cheers Kar Chun yankang There are a few ways we can do to Go Green Firstly take shorter showers to reduce water use This will lower your water and heating bills too Use compact fluorescent bulbs instead of incandescent bulbs as it uses less energy Lastly everyone has at least a few items that they don t really want but can t bear to throw away Freecycle it Freecycling is giving something to someone who will use it for free instead of throwing it in the garbage theverytallcp12 I think that we all can do our part to go green by avoiding the use of products that are harmful to the ozone layer We should purchase and use eco friendly products We can also play our part by maybe using recyclable materials This can reduce the waste in our land and prevent pollution Chih peng uresopreto07 There are many ways to Go Green I think that reducing the harmful waste and cutting down on certain necessities will help us Go Green but should we not also help Mother Earth grow back I feel it is important to plant trees shrubs bushes and etc As teens we grow up with knowledge and stature in this case we learn new things that adds to our experience likewise we should add new things trees shrubs and many more to Our Earth So not only do we reduce the rate of Global Warming we are also helping Earth grow back Ureso Preto aka SIVA xuesheng to go green we as teenagers should reduce reuse and recycle switch off the lights and air condition if we are not using them not only we help to save earth we also help our parents to save some money from the expensive electricity bill xuesheng 2a 05 pala02 As teenagers there is a lot of simple things that we can do to save our EARTH It does take some effort to do this things but come on It s our Earth You guys must have heard recycle but do you know what is Precycle well it means choosing products with less packaging recyclable packaging Another way is to unplug appliances when not in use Attention Shoppers reduce use of paper and plastic bags For the committed SPREAD THE MSG Pala 2A 05 allen05 Global Warming is really a big problem we have to deal with nowadays because it has the potential to change our lives forever and our surroundings as we know it First of all global warming has been since the great industrial revolution and it just got widely noticed nowadays it may just be too late but little things added up together can go along way in slowing down this problem Little things like using energy efficient appliances Using the washing machine or dishwasher only when they are full Reusing your shopping bag can not only save you money but also help in the uphill battle against global warming Allen 2A 05 massa23 When shopping it saves energy and waste to use a reusable bag instead of accepting a disposable one in each shop Waste not only discharges CO2 and methane into the atmosphere it can also pollute the air groundwater and soil zhiyang 2A 05 minnaypyi Nowadays everybody is talking about Global Warming But I have seen no one who is taking that issue seriously So we should motivate among our friends Bring this topic to their attention This is at least what we can do Before telling them what to do make them want to do those things first And I think we should plant more trees to balance the nature to reduce CO2 in the atmosphere etc Min 2A 05 maotao19 Global Warming has become a big problem now As a teenager we can do a lot of things to prevent the issue At first we can appeal people to pay more attention to it If a lot of people realize the issue they may take actions to solve it Secondly we can plant more trees Trees play the important role in improving invironment Thirdly we can make full use of the notebook to save the papers In this way we can save many trees Let s make contributions to protecting our world hazwari06 We as teenagers can form volunteer groups to collect unused materials such as papers plastics aluminium cans For example we go around neighbourhood areas to collect those materials and sell them for recycling The money we get we can buy baby tress to plant them around the neighbourhood areas In this way we can produce more trees to reduce our polluted air and save our environment Hazwari 2A 05 ameerah03 i feel that we can do our part by taking public transport to school everyday instead of getting our parents to send us so that it will reduce the number of cars and will thus reduce the amount of exhaust released into the air which destroys the ozone layer Teenagers should also reduce the usage of items which could not be recycled like plastic bags and hairspray to do their part in saving the earth Ameerah 2A05 elaine1226 3R which is Reduce Reuse and Recycle I can do my part by using resouces carefully For example i can reuse my plastic bag from shopping save paper and save water Recently the global warming threat has been increasing at an alarming rate by using the examples i ve mentioned i can do my part to save the earth elaine johnovan15 As teenagers we can do our part in saving the Earth in many ways To list a few we can help the enviroment by using less non recyclable materials such as plastic plates spoon fork and cups We can also minimize the usage of plastic bags when shopping at the supermarket Reducing the usage of water also helps significantly By using a cup filled with water when brushing teeth instead of running water alot of water is saved considering the fact that you brush your teeth everyday High carbon emissions are also the main cause of global warming We can help reduce carbon emissions by taking the public transport whenever possible and fitting a catalyst to our car exhaust to reduce harmful emissions of hydrocarbons carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides into the atmosphere Energy consumption in our homes play a part too Consuming less electricity by using energy saving light bulbs and switching off appliances whenever not in use is definitely a great way to help the enviroment Public awareness of global warming is farspread and many are trying to play their part to help the enviroment including teenagers We are reducing the amount of waste by reducing reusing and recycling For example both sides of a paper are used before being thrown into the recycling bin teehee01 We as teenagers can start doing our part to save the earth by reducing the use of air cons which contributes greatly to global warming Turning on the air conditioner could make global warming worse because the electricity widely relies on coal power plants which add warming greenhouse gases to the atmosphere We could also help by planting more trees which removes carbon dioxide from the air storing carbon in the trees and soil and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere Clarie 2A05 johnovan15 teehee dog janson11 As a teenager we should put into practice all the ways we know regarding GO GREEN for example we should switch off fans and lights when not in use and also throw those used cans into recycle bins rather than normal bins In this way not only we can do our part we can also influence our peers to GO GREEN CRS Tuesday DASE As teenagers facing the the issue of Global Warming how do you think you can do your part to Go Green

    bound to serve as a reminder for everyone to do their job in saving the planet Labeling music as green Effective waltzingmathile I guess there are two sides to this These albums are a great way to raise awareness about the green movement because people would actually pay attention to these musicians artiste and the green things that they have to say But oh my god isn t it corny We have all heard the green cheers during the green march yesterday and I personally thought it was too corny to contain And looking around me I saw similar expressions Doesn t it sound like a gimmick to you these corporate giants are making use of the current in thing just to make money Oh it s all too familiar Oh well but maybe I shouldn t be too cynical Preserving LA River Recently a team led by Heather Wylie went on a boat trip it isn t leisure It was to protect the Los Angeles river In LA natural places are hardly ever seen Yet the river is often polluted without thought The Corps tried to strip the river off Clean Water Act protections Wylie started a mission to save it even if it meant losing her job By wheewhee93 on 03 Aug 2010 Comment Like Report 2 Comments jade I think she serves a great inspiration to us with her great lengths and efforts to preserve the environment Yet I think the lesson we can gather is not that we must go to great lengths over nature preservation Rather we should protect the environment without having others to go to such great lengths Here s the full article http www latimes com news local la me tobar 20100716 0 2145175 column page 1 bluefairy Great job A truly inspirational being that we can all emulate Who says that you have to be someone of a high status to make a difference She has set a great example that anyone and everyone can make a difference and save the environment She went through great lengths to highlight the plight of the river but we don t have to do that yet It would help if we threw our litter into rubbish bins so that when it rains the rain water doesn t flush the rubbish into the rivers Little acts like this can go a long way City rivers are some of the most polluted water ways Up Up And Away What happens to the helium balloons that float into the sky Do you think that these balloons will burst fall back to Earth and animals will mistake them for food eat them and die It could happen Especially if the balloons have strings or ribbons attached to it If they don t kill the poor animals it would most likely pollute our Earth So By khai on 03 Aug 2010 Comment Like Report 4 Comments codenamebutter Yes that s true Although biodegradable balloons may be a bit costlier

    caspertan Wow I am really impressed by those ideas However I feel that they are not crazy but instead brilliant ideas I feel that the 1st idea of Hotel offers free meal to guests who are willing to generate electricity can be import into Singapore However it might not be in hotels but gyms instead Look at the number of guys who are obsessed with body building nowadays Imagine the amount of energy that can be generate per day during their workouts My suggestion will be for gyms to use those energy generated by those in the gym to provide power for their lighting air con and other appliances dorkyain I am so amazed by the ideas It is amazing that people are actually going to such lengths to save the earth I personally love the Prepeat printer That kind of technology awes me in ways that only i can understand I really hope more eco friendly products are going to be invented in the near future Willing To Give It Up A new Eco Pulse survey conducted by the Shelton Group of just over 1 000 American households finds that while Americans are trying to buy greener products and be more environmentally conscious with their purchase many don t want to give up modern conveniences When asked if they would give up mobile phones air conditioning By zeywery123 on 28 Jun 2010 Comment Like Report 38 Comments jervaishowes I do not think I would give up my computer or handphone however air conditioning and microwaves I would give up easily and already have And I do not own an ipod I believe that we should not give up all our convenience as they are an important part of our society and technology However there are certain conveniences we can give up or at least replace to conserve the environment Such as not using the air con but using a fan instead not having an ipod since the current handphones already has the functions of the ipod Things like computers and handphones are things we definitely cannot give up as they are our most efficient means of communication and it is how we keep in touch with the world outside Singapore savitha There are certain things that i would not give up for example my iphone The fact that i use it everyday makes it hard for me to give it up as im overly dependent on it although my iphone is not a need to use but a form of entertainment im still not willing it give it up however there are things that i can give up like air cons and laptops because there are others ways to accomodate it and i dont use it everyday bernard No i wouldn t give up such products either as these products are the one that keeps me moving Also with the help of this products i m able to connect with my friends and at times these products aid me in my studies In the way that with these products such as laptop only am i able to do my research for my assignments adding on to it products such as handphone are the one that helps me to keep connceted with my friends and family and obviously in times of emergency situations these products do become handy to me Thus i ll not be able to give up such products namely handphone laptop for any reasons lana Without airconditioning microwaves and ipod it s still manageble But i think without a handphone or a computer it will be far too much We need a phone for everything nowadays for communication and everything Moreover the technology is getting more and more advanced now so it s not likely possible for us to live without a phone in this era Computers or laptops are also necessary as it is required for our daily life activities such as homeworks REPORTS and it s is also a mean of communication for us Both of the devices have a lot of functions that is required for us in everything we do nowadays tleibing I wouldn t give up my iPod but I m willing to give up the other modern conveniences My iPod allows internet access through wireless connections so I can do without my laptop Without my iPod I don t think I ll be able to study because I m used to listening to music while studying Mobile phones are not really necessary and I think without the use of mobile phones everybody will learn to be punctual and reponsible noisebomb Hello For me I would give up products such as air conditioning microwaves and iPods Air conditioner microwaves and iPods are not used often byu me so if given a choice i would give it up Certain things like computers and handphones are quite valuable in a sense that it helps in a way such as finding information on the internet and communicating with other people Handphones are quite important too as it can be use in times of need like calling for help when needed As for computers they are basically needed for us students to complete reports so it is considered important for now khamisah I dont think i can give up my laptop My life will be so boring because i spent half my time on the internet watching videos surfing the net and reading up news on the entertainment Maybe i can give up my phone because i can use public phones and also without a phone i need not waste my money paying for the bill But handphones are important now so perhaps i wont give it up It will be inconvienient if i wanted to send a text to someone and i got no handphone elvi If you ask me to give up those product such as air conditioning microwave computer ipods TV ect i am willingly to give it up and i won t die without them the only thing that i really can t live without is mobile phone i will find it uneasy without it I will take my phone out to check or just see the screen for a while then i will feel better the other reason is that mobile phone has advantages that can replace a lot of technology such as connecting with people online playing games listening to music radio and many other thing that s why i can t live without it farahani i can give up all thge modern conveniences except for handphones i have lived witout airconditioning and ipods for most of my life so it does not make much of a difference if i give up on them however i have lived with a handphone for quite a long time and it has become a part of my life without my handphone i realise i cant get a lot of things done i feel that i am uncontactable and lost without my phone i need to sms my friends and keep in touch with them all the time i also need my phone just in case of any emergency calls so that i am easily reached my handphone is essential in my everyday life joekirno89 OK lets see not really all the items that listed there for the items that i can give it up is the aircon microwave ipods this three i can give up rather then hand phone and computer is because those three can replace for other thing example for aircon it can be replaced by using fan for microwave u can replaced to use boiling water and stem it ipods haha i dont even have one befor for the phone is ture that it can also be replaced by use public phone BUT is public phone portable answer is no is public phone available anytime and everywhere answer is also NO there for phone is very important another lame example is that is let said there is an accident in the middle of the high way and u need to make a very emergency call do u wan to run and find a public phone to make a 995 call jus for the ambulance do u think when the time u found the public phone the person already dead thats why phone is very important to me how about the computer can it be replaced by any other things for me i think it cant maybe for others it can replaced expamle if i need to do a reseach on some science stuffs i can just simply login to google or yahoo to get my information other that goin to the library and find the books that i need for me computer is a very usefull technology ncoleey I m not willing to give them up We are too used to the modern conveniences brought about by the advancement in technologies It is impossible for us to entirely give up on the technologies that we had learned over the decades Do you agree that every production causes carbon emission Well from I pod hand phone to even food production it involves carbon emission in the process We become so dependent on the technology and the convenience it brings about So much so it is impossible for us to be independent from them Would you rather lead a Tarzan like lifestyle Tarzan like lifestyle meaning green no machine guns to hunt no factories to produce proper clothes and NO ELECTRICITY Most importantly No music no life no kpop I die minli Personally i can give up modern conveniences like air conditioner and microwave ovens since i dont really use them often However techonologies like handphone laptops and ipods are some things that i cannot give up as i need it to communicate with my friends family and to get updated on the lastest news of my idols Also i need to have music accompanying me during long journeys so an ipod is a neccessity Hence although these modern conveniences might harm de environment i dont thnk i would be able to give these few items up candy023 I think that it will be hard for most people to give up their modern conveniences and entertainments because we are too used to having these modern technologies and we cannot bring ourselves to give them up Personally I cannot give up my computer as I use it every single day to chat with friends check emails listening to music and checking the latest news and gossips of celebrities Without the computer I will be unable to do most of the things I normally spend doing daily Also it will be more inconvenient for me to communicate with others as I normally ask people questions through the MSN or email dragon29125 Technologies have advanced to make things convenient for us while most of them are something that we can do without there are some things that human beings have heavily depended on from the last century Personally I am willing to give up on air conditioning microwaves iPods This is because air conditioning and iPods are just objects that gives material comfort something we can always do without since our life is not heavily depending on these material comfort Of course microwaves is just an invention that can help to cool faster through vibrations of liquid molecules However being someone who is particular about food microwaves do heat up food but does not give Mailard browniong of food which means the radiation given off does not actually make the food crispier and tastier So what about handphones and computers specifcially internet They are something that human beings have depended on a lot from the last century This is because of globalisation Because of globalisation we tend to feel easy to travel further be it at local or to other countries as a result of vast improvement made in transport technology Therefore it is pretty much impractical to be without internet or handphone if you are going to communicate with people that is not beside you at the moment It is just SO impractical to write letters to your family members who are probably in cinema watching movies or perhaps just studying in school just to ask them to come back home To conclude communication technologies are something that I personally think we can t do without as a result of globalisation but the other technologies are just mostly material comforts martinpriscilla I would be willing to give up my air conditioner microwaves and everything except for my communication tools Not having such technologies are fine because it s easier to adapt without them But being in a world that is so advanced it s hard to avoid a tool that is very nesessary Handphone We need to know whats happening around the world and it is vital to have a tool that can allow us to know about it In cocnlusion i can give up all my technologies except for my handphone meiyue i willing to give up air conditioning microovaves computers or iPods as can be substitude by other thing that it is more environmentally friendly Instead of air conditioning can be replace by fan as it take up more electrical energy but the only thing that i cant give up was handphone cause it to convience and the only tools that you can used to communicate as fast as possible davidlee There are some things that i would not even consider giving up like my laptop and my handphone these are my most efficient mode of communication Still i can give up things like aircon and water heaters instead of using the aircon we can use the fan this helps us to save electricity As electricity is mainly produced by the burning of fossil fuels we would be conserving a limited resource on the earth We would also be reducing polluttion of the earth as burning of fossil fuels release pollutants into the atmosphere peiqian89 well personally i feel that in our current world now especially in singapore living without technology is almost impossible especially computer and handphone it link us to the rest of the world and allow communication and finding of lastest news information etc As for air conditioning microwaves and ipod music i can let go Well this three product isn t essential in our daily life simply because we can still survive even without it air con is use for cooling purposes but we can always used a paper to fan ourself isn t it microwaves could be convenient in preparing food but we can always used cooking stove to get our food prepared Current technology for handphone would definately replaced the current ipod jiaqi909090 For me i am willing to give up products such as air conditioning and Ipods I am willing to give up these things because there are better replacements for them For example i could use the fan instead of using air cons I am willing to give ipods up because i could use my mobile phone to listen to music I am not willing to give up my handphone because it has many different functions and it is also portable It allows people to contact me whereever i am making it an everyday necessity I am also not willing to give up laptops because i need to use it for school projects entertainment and other sorts of functions which is very important and that makes me unwilling to give it up v v v v D D D D D D D D D D D D D D D D D D D D D D D melvina I think i can give up microwaves air conditioning or ipods Because such products not quite useful for me in daily life but for mobile phone or computer it will no give it up because i need computer to do some research my assignment In a addition i need phone to communicate with others jiaqi I would be willing to give up on air conditioning microwaves computers and anything else except my moblie phone I can subsititute my laptop and ipod for my handphone Handphone have the applicantion such as music player that can replace the use for having a ipod With the rise of the modern technology these days all moblie phone have internet access therefore it can replace the need of having laptop dragon29125 Of course not to mention for TNCs Transnation Corporations imagine if they communicate without using of handphones and internet they would have take a few days or even weeks jus to get one message from another corporations chewping I am willing to give up my ipod since phone do have the function of playing musics and videos Ipod is not a must for me and may not use it everyday However phone is crucial to me so that i am able to communicate with my friends and families Due to the modern technology i felt that phone are making our life more convenience and do have many function as well as application Therefore I don t think that i am willing to give up my phone since phone is a form of communication in our daily life alybelle There are 2 things in terms of modern conveniences that are very important to my life which are laptop and Iphone To be honest I won t be willing to give up any of these 2 devices as I need my Iphone to listen to songs and for calling when I m outside However when I m at home I d need my laptop as it is my source of entertainment I know that I may seem selfish however this is the reality of the modern life Most of us would not be willing to give up any of any of these items as it is already part of our

deserve the term junk Emails direct sms You know marketers should really start thinking of like working with other companies to cut costs Like companies could pay for ad space on macdonald s cups or other forms of trash like inside potato chip bags on plastic bags maybe on the side of disposable chopsticks annabellaftw Indeed junk mail is a big issue However as we move ahead with the times we see less and less of junk mail and more of junk emails Years ago I remember seeing the lobbies of HDB flats littered with junk mail Since then HDB has implemented an area for their residents to throw away their junk mail Although the problem with junk mail is still evident we can always counter it by recycling these unwanted scrapes of paper tanyanhan I really do hope that marketers get the message that flyers are NOT working for most of us Property agency flyers tuition flyers most of us wouldn t even think twice and would throw them in the bin in the next second I think printing advertisements on fridge magnets seem to work I still have the fridge magnet by a plumber company which came in handy last month when we needed their pumbing services World Environment Day It s World Environment Day

contribute to the downfall of the earth soapandshampoo It s amazing how Earth s resources are being used at such a rapid rate Even more interesting would be the fact that most people are oblivious to this fact and contributing to this wastage Take for example the typical American citizen who contributes about 0 979 tonnes per year That is close to 1000kg It s also a scary thought that at this rate

    more of a help in saving the environment Indeed people do blame technology for causing the world to be in the bad shape it is in today when it is them who are actually the cause if this disaster What they do not see is how it is through technology they can save the environment TV for example is a technology is a powerful media which is able to influence the society greatly It can do good by spreading the message to people to help save the Earth by practising the 3Rs going green Besides TV the recycling plant itself is in the form of technology Recycling helps to save the Earth doesnt it without technology clearing of BP s oil spill will take forever and some of the marine species would have become extinct Thus technology helps in saving the environment It is now up to mankind to think of their actions make a difference greenme Technology has better our lifes in various ways we couldnt imagine however it also has created a mass amount of waste and polluted our clean and green Earth I feel that since we cannot do without these technologies we can actually use the technology to reduce the damage done and aid us in our quest to save the Earth For example for the thousand of handphones discarded everyday most of them are recycled to reduce the amount of waste generated Technology created those waste and it has a way to reduce and reuse them Thus ultimately i still believe techonolgy is a help than a hindrance cyen It depends on individual Some may think it is a hindrance in saving the environment causing global warming by producing greenhouse gases such as burning CFC products Others may think it saves the environment There is a type of vehicle which uses solar energy rather than fuel Computers also have positive impact on the environment For example a simple email could replace tons of paper It doesn t mean that a personal letter isn t needed it just helps on sending several thousand letters or frequent updates in the mean time As for me i think that technology is more of help than a hindrance in saving the environment S clock I think it is really depends on how you see Some people may say technology not only improves our daily life but also helps in saving the environment Without technology we making a fire to light up rooms or using paper to write letters which is not good for the environment However there are lots of clean energies which can give us better quality of life and also save the environment From the other side some technology is really a hindrance in saving environment For example plastic bags which cannot be decomposed by soil and people use them every day in most countries It is really not good for our environment Therefore we can reduce using this kind of technology to improve the environment Polluting The Environment Spewing vulgarities has become a communication tool among youngsters nowadays and its POLLUTING THE ENVIRONMENT What do you think By lyx on 28 May 2010 Comment Like Report 4 Comments farisdmtm well that s how youngsters communicate with one another nowadays to us it may be unpleasent to hear and it s rude but to them it s a way of communication by using vulgarities is how they express themselves it may be POLLUTING to our ears and the environment but they don t care tingwen92 I think that the action of spewing vulgarities by youngsters might be polluting the environment in some way It is because when youngsters say vulgarities they are actually affecting the ears of the people around them Thus this might cause discomfort in the ears of the people surrounding the youngsters Even though vulgarities can be discomfort to our ears the youngsters do not think likewise They think that vulgarities is a form of communication with their friends Thus as time goes by the youngsters actually form a habit of using vulgarities in their communication They would naturally think that there is nothing wrong with speaking vulgarities eutrophication Teenagers spewing vulgarities isn t really polluting the environment in literal sense but it shows how civilised these teengars are despite Singapore being touted to be a first world country and having the best education system xingxuan I agree that spewing vulgarities is polluting the environment It is becoming a habit for many teenagers This is their form of communicating with each other Without including some vulgarities in their dialogue they might find it uneasy However vulgarities do affect the impression of people towards you They might find it unacceptable Even before getting to know you they will assume that you have poor upbringing By including vulgarities in the dialogue it will eventually becomes a habit and occur to them naturally They will continue to use them even when they are older this might influence the subsequent generation s way of speaking Since it s a habit to them vulgarities will occur to them naturally even when they do not have any intention of using it They should try to refrain themselves from using vulgarities Go MAD In School First As a final year student in SP and an active member of a school based society the nature of my involvement dictates that I return home from school after 8pm on an average of twice a week I ve noticed a worrying trend in SP lecture theatres and classrooms have lights and air conditioning left to operate throughout the evenings and late By pearlynannlim on 23 May
