Transcript

  • 1. Environment
  • 2. Here are just a few examples of the threats to our environment and some ideas to help you to do something about them.
  • 3. Problems affecting environment
    • Pollution (air, soil, water, noise)
    • 4. Acid rain;
    • 5. Global warming;
    • 6. Destruction of rainforests and other wild habitats;
    • 7. The decline and extinction of thousands of species of animals and plants.
  • 8. Idea to Help
    • Sort out your rubbish.
    • 9. Use recycled paper to help save trees.
    • 10. Try to avoid buying plastic. It's hard to recycle.
    • 11. One way to cut down on plastic is to refuse to use carrier bags
    • 12. Don't buy over-packed goods. Many things we buy have unnecessary amounts of plastic and paper around them.
    • 13. Never buy products made up of tropical hardwoods e.g. mahogany and teak. It is better to buy only pine, oak, ash or beech because they can be replaced
           
  • 14.
    • Use less energy by switching off lights when rooms are not in use, not wasting hot water, not overheating rooms and not boiling more water than necessary when making a cup of tea!
    • 15. Use a bicycle or walk instead of using a car for short trips.
    • 16. If you spot pollution, such as oil on the beach, report it to the local council.
    • 17. If you use chlorine-based bleach or detergents containing phosphates you are contributing to water pollution. Try to buy 'environmentally-friendly' products.
    • 18. Don't buy aerosols containing CFCs. Actually, it's not a good idea to buy any aerosols. Even 'ozone friendly' aerosols may contain harmful chemicals and spray cans are difficult to dispose of - they cannot be recycled.

    • 19. Don't waste electricity. Electricity is produced by burning coal, oil and gas and this action gives off carbon dioxide.
    • 20. Car fumes produce carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide - so try to cut down on car journeys if possible. Use a bike or walk - it's good exercise for you too!
    • 21. In many countries souvenirs made from rare wildlife are available - never buy shells, coral or things made from elephant ivory, rhino horn or cat skin etc.
    • 22. Avoid using chemical sprays in the garden - some of these can be poisonous to wildlife.
