关于乱扔垃圾的英语作文

1,what effects does littering have on the enviroment?

Litter can cause a whole range of problems for
everyone in the community. Litter discarded in
streets and parks can travel through the storm water
system to our bays and oceans, where it can cause
harm to wildlife.
-Litter costs money. Removing litter from the environment
costs everyone money.
-Litter is a threat to public health. Litter attracts
vermin and is a breeding ground for bacteria. Items
such as broken glass and syringes can be a health
hazard in public places.
-Litter can be a fire hazard. Accumulated litter and
carelessly discarded cigarette butts are potential fire
hazards.
-Litter looks bad. Litter negatively affects the image
of places, especially tourist locations.
-Litter attracts litter. Litter sends out a message that
people do not care for the environment and that it is
acceptable to litter.
-Litter can harm or kill wildlife. Plastic litter can
choke or suffocate birds and marine life. Carelessly
discarded containers can trap small mammals.
-Litter harms our waterways. Organic matter, such
as dog poo, leaves and grass clippings, pollutes our
waterways.

2,what do you think we should do to stop people from littering?

There are a number of simple ways to help prevent
littering.
Use garbage cans properly if provided. Make sure
your waste goes in the garbage can, not beside it.

Take your litter home when visiting parks and gardens.
Wind and animals scavenging in garbage cans
can often lead to littering in our parks.

Pick up garbage, do not flush it away. Sweep
paved areas and pick up all the garbage, rather than
hosing it down into gutters and drains. All the
garbage in gutters works its way into the water.

Pack a garbage free lunch with reusable plastic
containers and water bottles rather than bags and
drink boxes.

Never sweep grass, leaves or any other waste into
gutters as they degrade to form a rich nutrient
source for algal blooms. Never hose paths as it will
only wash your waste into the drainage system.

Wash cars on the grass, never on the road or hard
paths where it will wash detergents into the
drainage system.

Always dispose of unwanted chemicals responsibly,
never pour them into gutters or drains. Gas,
paints, thinners, pharmaceutical drugs, and garden
pesticides and herbicides are poisonous to wildlife.
Your local government can advise you of the best
way to dispose of these.

Prevent oil from leaking from your car as it could
end up in the river or sea.

Use a reusable cloth bag when you are shopping,
or choose cardboard boxes instead of plastic bags
whenever possible. Reuse plastic bags by taking
them back to the store, where they will be recycled
into items such as flower pots.

Use washing detergents which contain no phosphates,
to prevent excessive amounts of these entering
the drainage system. Also avoid excessive use
of chemical fertilisers as runoff from these into the
waterways cause algal blooms.

Never pour waste fats and oils down the sink, but
rather throw them out with other household
garbage.

Always take a pick-up-bag when walking your
dog. Don't leave its droppings in the gutter or on
the footpath as they will wash into the drainage system
and contaminate the water.

Always place waste in the most appropriate place.
If there are no garbage cans, take it home with you.
Don't bury it in the ground or sand, as it will soon
be uncovered by animals, or peoples' feet. It is best
to reuse and recycle, never litter.
