I think that nature is mother of us and we should try to save it from hurt. but we try to abuse it and destroy our mothers. we must create a universe plan to reduce greenhouse gases production and cheer scientific programs for saving our environment.

I'm really participative in this regard.
I engage in regular environmental sanitation.
Yes. I does.
I think my participation is optimal.
Generally, i sanitize my environment and tidy it up ensuring proper disposal of waste in order to maintain personal hygiene and healthy life.

I have a spiritual link to the environment.

We must use the public transport so that there will be less vehicles on roads and the smoke emitted from it in the atmosphere can be reduced. If we want to use our private vehicles we can use our own bicycle which does not leave any smoke.

I think I do not enough. We should save our environment. Don’t use too much plastic and don’t waste it. I should sort out garbage into paper, plastic, glass, metal, and bio trash.

I think I do as much as I can, like every day I can, I take my bicycle to go everywhere, only on rainy days I take the bus to work, but the rest of the days I use the bycicle to travel trough the city. I try to recicle most of the rubbish that we procuce at home and we use the organic trash to make compost to use it to grow our own vegetables. If all of us do a little it would produce a great change to the enviroment all over the world.

Thanks for all the episodes of this series, they're all really good for practise English and improve the writing and speaking.

Planet Earth quite literally provides us with everything we could ever want or need. We should really care about it. For example, stop pollution and win poaching.
