When you are in Beijing, do you feel some uncomfortable? Well, the air is not fresh and temperature is high. You always feel hot. When you want to relax yourself by seeing some “green,” you only find some plastic bags here! Yes, the reason that you feel uncomfortable is because of the POLLUTION in Beijing.
Beijing, the city will hold the Olympics, now has many ways to keep things from being wasted.
In Beijing there has an organization that organizes a person who has car to drive fewer days than usual. Like “mei yue shao kai ji tian che” which means “every month drive your car less.” This means that more and more people are realizing that we all have the responsibility to protect the environment. We all have started to take bus and subway as much as possible.
Even the super market has stopped offering plastic bags freely. It can stop people from wasting them and this thing we call, “white pollution.” Here is a survey to show 91.52% Chinese people are planning not to use plastic bags.
Every year, we plant trees and flowers to make our environment better and better. It can also prevent sands storms that come from the north. So trees make the air fresher and prevent natural sand storms.
In these ways, I believe our city will become more and more beautiful. The environment here will become wonderful and without pollution.
So let’s hope and wait!

There are many unforgettable memories in my life. The most significant memory I always recall is the experience of joining the Roots and Shoots (R&S).
This group is instituted by Doctor Jane Goodall. She is a famous researcher who studies chimpanzees. “R&S is an international hands-on environmental and humanitarian education program, with the goal of creating positive change—for our communities, for animals and for the environment.”
Although we could not solve such a big pollution problem, we can start from every little things. I joined this group 4 years ago and struggled to understand how to best protect our environment. As a member of Green Piece Group, we collected wastes regularly, such as discard bottle and newspapers, and then recycled them. At the same time, other two members and I started to advocate students to use packages and bags instead of plastic packages. Although we did not succeed at the first, the proposa; was accepted by most students finally by combining it with other strategies.
Due to good performance of works, my school presented me with the outstanding delegates to be awarded by Jane Goodall. I believed that this experience will benefit my future because I possess the desire to protect our planet.
