I didn't use to do much for the environment in the past, but now I start to do recycling and I have joined a club that tries to plant 1000 trees across the country.

I like to help the environment because we live in this world and it's important for us to look after our forest,animals,air and etc.for example What do we do to have a good air?We can use the public transport, however I know they are often crowed.I believe the bicycle is so good because it's healthy for us and air and we should stop to shoot the animals and the end we should stop to use the plastic packets.

Hello everyone! I'm very green in my soil. I'd like to do a lot of useful for my planet. Unfortunatelly, in my country it is not taken to preserve and protect enveroment. I can only pray.

Hello! "How green are you?" Unfortunately I don't really do enough for enviromental. I just don't now what can I do to help save the planet. Of course we always clean up after ourselves when we have a rest or have a barbecue in nature. And I am agree with man who say that factories all over the world pollution every singl day and I can't understand how one person can help save the planet. When I was in Plitvice lakes in Croatia I was amased by the beauty of this place and how it protected. There isn’t even allowed fishing. And what really bother me now - how to save our lake Baikal, becouse there are now building the factory. And many russian people protest about it. I hope we will stop it and save Baikal!

Hi, I shoud do mor to help environment. I do not a lot.

I think we have not yet become aware of the garbage that we generate daily, and I had to insist a lot in the supermarket so that they would not give me everything in several plastic bags. In my city we started thinking about all the plastic that we discard in the form of bags and wrappings of all kinds.

Hi Everyone,
Everywhere can be clean if clean our living place. We should be sensitive againist nature. People fell trees for build hotels. They slayghter nature. My responsibility warn people if they make mistake something. this world isn't just our world. too our children and our granchildren. nature friendly is human.

Hi Learning English Team!
I found this English Lesson Podcast Recently. So I am the beginner. The lerning system of this Podcast Process is very good and I try to study every day. Thank you all of the Staffs.

By the way, ther is one pargraph I can not understand. That is podcast Series 01 Episode 06/Voice 4.

Describing one man "#### and I don't see how saving your old newspapers is going to help apart from making people feel good about themselves."

Thank you very much for your help.

Hi monodama,

The sentence '...and I don't see how saving your old newspapers is going to help apart from making people feel good about themselves' is a comment about recycling. The speaker thinks that saving old newspapers does not benefit the environment, but is just a way for people to think that they are doing something helpful.
