[Thematic Report] Environment and Me

by Seyoung Kwon | 15-08-2020 01:44 recommendations 0

For I have been interested in taking care of the environment and impacts of mankind on it, I’ve been always trying to do something to minimize our effect. The first thing I do is to ride a bicycle instead of taking my parents’ car. Bicycles don't emit any pollutants like carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides that fosters global warming. Personally, I believe riding a bike is a better solution than just walking, if the environment is capable of riding it, because it is way faster than walking and I love enjoying the speed and wind tickling my face. Also, I take public transportations such as buses and the subway. Korean transportation system is very efficient and well organized, so I don’t have to ride a car.

One more thing I do for the environment is to bring my own container and tumbler to avoid producing plastic wastes. Firstly, I bring my own lunch to school and even if I need to buy my lunch sometimes, I bring my own plastic container so that I don’t have to use plastic plates and utensils. Some people might think that using only one plastic fork and a plate won’t really change anything, but if it accumulates for a year, great amount of disposable plates and utensils would end up in an incinerator or landfill. 

Though my actions seem like only tiny attempts, I believe that it will bring about a great help to the environment like the butterfly effect. Also, in the future, I want to do some physical service such as gaining trash on the beach or forests, donate money to environmental organizations, and buy an electric car. The only thing I want is to be more aware of our impact on the environment as I get older and to become a mature person who is responsible enough to minimize my harmful effects on the environment.

    Thank you for writing about your efforts for the environment! I always feel this way by reading articles like this, but I think it makes me reflect on my actions. I reflect on myself for ignoring the environment with the neglectful mind. Your mind is always thinking about the environment!
