关于一只象乱扔垃圾的英语作文

Waste management is a big problem for Australia. Australian population continues to grow and we need to use more and more resources and creating more waste. Wastes are substances that have no further use and, if disposed of in land, water or air, can harm humans or the environment. If we don’t do something for the amount of waste that is produced there is a risk that we may run out of room in landfills or even run out of resources, and I conducted the surveys from my friends and neighbours to check how many rubbish we need to waste and what is that.
I conducted 20 surveys, asking them about type and amount of waste that they generate each week. The results showed that about 35% of people have 2 bags of rubbish per day. And about 25% of people have 1 and 3 bags of rubbish per day. The rest of them have 8+ bags per week. Do you know how large of the number for the rubbish? If an average weight of 2 kg per bag, that’s mean we got about 116+kg per week for 20 household. If we have 23 million people in Australia, that’s mean we need to waste about 113.4 million rubbishes per week. That’s a really huge number. And then I want to tell them about which strategies they need to be using to make a positive impact on waste management. If we still waste that lot, may be one day all the landfill are full and we have to found a new place to set the rubbish, and at that time we will be really regret.
The survey result also showed that there were a number of different types of waste thrown out in each household. Just like I think before, most of them are food waste (29%), and the following are plastic (21%), garden waste (18%), paper product (15%), glass (10%), miscellaneous (5%) and the last one is aluminium (2%). As you see food waste still pretty much, but we can’t do anything to that, right? Therefore we need to improve our waste management by recycling the paper product, glass and aluminium rather putting them in the garbage. That will be helpful for reduce landfill and save resources. May be that just a really small number for the rubbishes waste, but that will make landfill have a lot space to put other rubbish.
In the survey, people were asked to rank which strategies they would be prepared to use to help better manage waste. Most people said use products that can be reused or recycled is the first one, the next highest rank is choose to buy goods that have less packaging and join an environmental group, establish a worm farm to reduce food waste and put rubbish in a bin, not on the ground. The least popular choice is Volunteer to help on ‘clean up Australia day’. These choices show u, people want to do something more easily to do and don’t need too much time to spend to do.
I think Australian people need to do one thing good and that does will be fine, just need to improve our own waste management by recycling the paper, glass and aluminium. If Australian government will check all the time and wanning people, that will be more easily. Thank for reading.
