I would like to visit the Eden Project very much. I want to see how those ideas of environmental protection work and try to figure out what I can do at home. Also I am really interested in various of plants. They are beautiful things.

What they are doing at Eden Project is a good way to protect endangered species. By making sure the plants bear seeds artificially in a controlled condition is important and efficient. In this way, we can make sure the rare plants won't die out. For the ones that are out in the wild, we need to maintain a well-balanced natural habitat, reduce detrimental human interference, and also reduce pollution.

I think I probably have produced lots of rubbish. I hope if everybody's rubbish is just enough to build one 'WEEE' man, my rubbish wouldn't be too much that two 'WEEE' men can be built out of it. But it is so hard not to produce rubbish. Most of the things we buy from supermarket are over-packed. When you open a box of chocolate, for example, they will at least have s shelf thing to immobilize them, then some of them are even wrapped with plastic paper individually.

Oh my gosh!
where is my pdf support pack?

Hello Rohul,

We try to include support packs for as much of our content as we can but not every page has one yet. We are trying to add more, but it does take some time.

Best wishes,

Eden project is very attraction, I really would visit it.
I think we should protect them in natural conservation and education people together protect them.
The rubbish each day we throw away are quite much, I think it is enough to make a WEEE man.

i helped a friend i do NABU voluntary work with build an electric vehicle tank station using walkie talkie in my local.

Hello!
Would you mind giving me some help? I'm a little confused about the word "pop" in the sentence "Just dab that in there and pop that in there".

Hello Amy,

If you look up the word 'pop' in our dictionary (see the Cambridge Dictionaries Online searchbox on the lower right), you'll see that one of the meanings of 'pop' as a verb is 'put'. That is the meaning in use here.

I hope this helps.

All the best,

I would love to see the Eden project because even if I live in the Tropical country the Eden project has it all. We can protect endangered species by saving them, recycle and buy sustainable products, reducing threats to wildlife and plant more trees and flowers. I've never heard of a WEE man in my country because recycling is way far different and some people don't have discipline in throwing their rubbish.

Dear Team,
which one is correct?
1-I take shower 2- I have shower 3- I get shower.
I think number 2 is correct.

Hello Omer,

As you can see on our delexical verbs page, both 'take' and 'have' are used with 'a shower', 'a bath' and quite a few other words and phrases. So both 1 and 2 are correct, but not 3.

Please note that you should say 'a shower' in both of these phrases, and also that it would be unusual to say just 'I take a shower' out of context. If you're reporting what you're doing at the moment, you should say, for example, 'I'm having a shower' (using the present continuous).
