ESSAY ON HOUSEHOLD RUBBISH
by Mª Bella Granado Castro, B2-1 (B) Inglés
The amount of household waste that we produce is increasing. Most food comes in plastic containers, which are taken to huge landfills when we are finished with them. Landfills are getting full, and this produces soil, air and water pollution as well as a terrible impact on human and animal health. All this is slowly killing the planet, so what can we do to help?
To begin with, we could recycle old food containers by finding a new use for them. A great way to do it is to make people aware of the importance of recycling. For instance, metal tins can be made into a jar for storing pens and pencils, or as flower pots, rather than just throw them away. This way, people will become more environmentally aware and less rubbish will be taken to landfill sites.
Another solution could be that local councils provided more facilities to recycle large items. For example, damaged household appliances like cookers and fridges are often just left out in the street. If the local authorities provided especial collections of these items for recycling, the environment would be less polluted.
Another way to help is to compost our food waste. For example, vegetable peel can be put into the soil in our back gardens, or in pots in our balconies or window sills. This will make better quality soil and enable more plants to grow.
In conclusion, I believe there are a lot of ways to encourage people to recycle more and reduce the amount of rubbish we create. By recycling plastic and metal, and reusing food waste, we can help to make the world a cleaner place for everyone and make our environment safer and cleaner for the future. After all, who wants to be overrun by rubbish?
