All of us can do a little bit to preserve the environment. It's just don't throw garbage in forbidden places, don't pollute rivers and don't consume products from factories that don't respect the environment .

Hello everyone! Like the first woman said, I don't think I do enough. I do as much as I can. I don't throw rubbish everywhere I reach and I don't waste water freely, you know, the pure water are down all over the world. That's all I want to say. BYE!

And, of course, I take a shorter bath than I can, I use to turn off as all things as possible from the outlets at night and use my car only when is really necessary. That's what I do to be green.

Hello everyone! I noticed that this part of Tom the teacher's section has some differences from de audio:

Will: I’m still at school. I’m 16 so I’m doing my GCSE exams this year.
...
Jodie: I’m 16 as well.
Tom: Yes, she says "I’m sixteen as well". ‘As well’ means the same as ‘too’ in this phrase. You can say "I’m sixteen too" or you can say "I’m sixteen as well".

Actually, Jodie speak first and then Will.

Thanks a lot for your amazing work!

Hello arlisson,

Thanks for pointing that out and sorry for any confusion. I've made a few corrections in the transcript so that it reflects what you hear in the audio. I'm afraid I can't change the audio, but I think it's pretty clear now.

Thanks again for taking the time to point this out to us.

All the best,

Kirk

I am not as green as I would like, but I try to be in the small attitudes of routine.

In Egypt , Our life style is totally green . :D
Because we don't cast down any thing that we have used except the rubbish.

I'm really industrious in this aspect.
I engaged in regular environmental sanitation.
Yes. I really does.
I think, its optimal.
However, being green absolutely adds value to life.

To me, i really like clear air, in my village , the air really clean, there are many trees and flower but when i come to the city to learn , the air is polluted by traffic smoke, so i think we have to do alot as much you can do to protect environment like don' through the trash in the street, use reusable bags, don't smoking at public and more importantly we should change our mind and change your habbit single day

Use Reusable Bags.
