How to Eliminate Noise Pollution
Nowadays, along with the fast pace of urban development, noise pollution has largely disturbed the normal life of city dwellers. It has becomes such a serious problem that it has aroused the concern from the whole society.
To put an end to such a serious problem, in my mind, calls for the efforts from all sides. First of all, major factories, as main noise creators, should be moved to industrial zones in suburbs. Department stores and big restaurants should not to be established too close to residential quarters. Moreover, the municipal government should increase the ratio of green land in the city, which can reduce all kinds of noises significantly. Last but not least, all urban constructions should be stopped during the night so as not to disturb the neighboring dwellers.
How can anybody expect to lead a meaningful life until he is far from noise pollution? Only when all of us join in the efforts of eliminating noise pollution at all levels can we expect to have a better environment and a more beautiful future.
The Problems of Plastic Bags
Plastic bags have found their way into a wide area of everyday life. They are provided in big supermarkets and corner stores. These bags do make peoples life more convenient. They dont need to carry cloth bags, or baskets with them when going shopping. They are also very cheap so many people always buy them.
However, plastic bags also bring side effects. The plastic bags some people throw away casually cause the white pollution to our environment, which is very harmful because plastic bags cannot be decomposed.
People have to be careful with the use of plastic bags. They should make sure they put the plastic bags into dustbins after the bags are used. It also might be better for people to use the traditional cloth bags to hold the goods instead of plastic bags.
Limiting the Use of Disposable Plastic Bags
In the past, a great many people used to use disposable plastic bags for shopping and other purposes. However, the excessive use of disposable plastic bags has led to great damages both to environment and to peoples health.
On the one hand, it takes about 200 years for a buried plastic bag to decompose and be absorbed by the soil. On the other hand, the use of disposable plastic bags will indirectly do harm to peoples health, which is less known to the public. Sometimes people buy hot food packed into disposable plastic bags to save the time and labor in washing their dining utensils. Yet they are not informed of the chemicals in the bags will release in high temperature. Therefore, they are eating the poisonous stuff while enjoying the tasty food.
Its enlightening and significant that our government has banned the free provision of disposable plastic bags in supermarkets. Trial practice has shown considerable reduction in the consumption of bags. In a word, fewer plastic bags will bring us the sustainable development of our earth.
