The roads are dotted with trash, the railways arelittered with decaying garbage and our cities aredisgraced by plastic bags. Lately, the worseningrubbish problem has aroused people’s wide concern.Some hold the belief that it is an overstatement toclaim that people have formed a “throw away”society, and that they just discard the used items,which is necessary. Others, however, firmly contendthat people do develop a habit of throwing thingsaway. Personally, I firmly side with the latter.
It is no doubt that our cities are on the waytowards becoming a huge landfill. To begin with, people are in the habit of littering. Nowadays,people tend to discard old items like outdated furniture and worn-out appliance, which areactually recoverable. Furthermore, due to the inadequate facilities of garbage collection,people throw away their refuse everywhere at will. In addition, rubbish is in rapid increase. Inthe first place the quickening tempo of modern lifestyle gives rise to people’s favor ofdisposable items for sake of convenience, which greatly adds the amount of rubbish. In thesecond place, the development of science and technology also contributes to it. It generatesnew product in a more frequent way, which makes the old ones cast aside as rubbish at aquicker pace. Consequently, our cities are decorated with trash..
In view of the severity of the issue, we should adopt immediate measure to address it.First of all, the government should play a leading role. It ought to bring in strong anti-litteringlaws, backed by heavy penalties and effective enforcement, to tackle the littering behaviors.Also, officials should make good use of mass media to promote the public’s awareness ofenvironmental protection, making sure that everyone will become a conscious environmentprotector. Additionally, scientists can develop efficient technologies to degrade and recycle therubbish. Research findings reveal that 63% of the refuse nowadays are recycled. Finally, it isessential for schools to attach importance to environmental education, so that every child willbecome environmentally friendly and get rid of the littering habit.
In conclusion, people’s littering habit is turning our communities into a rubbish holder. Itis high time that we took joint effort to solve the rubbish problem. Otherwise, we will live withrubbish in the future.
