The earth is the home we depend on for survival. Now this home is surrounded by garbage. As the owner of the earth, we can't wait to die. We can't just worry and complain. We need to act to purify our living environment.
Recently, garbage classification in Shanghai has become a hot topic. In the past, garbage was thrown whenever you want. Nowadays, there are no garbage cans in the streets of Shanghai. People should not only throw the garbage to a fixed place, but also throw the garbage according to the time of delivery. What's more, they should classify all kinds of garbage. Dry waste, wet waste, recyclable waste, hazardous waste and so on must not be mistaken. Take the milk tea we often drink for example. The Pearl in the milk tea belongs to the wet garbage, the milk tea cup belongs to the dry garbage, and the cup cover belongs to the recyclable garbage. This cup of milk tea needs to be put into three dustbins respectively. We use it every day. No matter how wet it is, it's dry garbage.
According to statistics, the total amount of garbage produced in China is about one billion tons every year, and it is growing rapidly every year. Hangzhou's garbage can fill the whole west lake in three years. At present, two-thirds of cities in China are facing the situation of garbage siege. Therefore, we need to enhance the awareness of garbage classification. There are many advantages of waste classification: separate the perishable kitchen waste and make it into organic fertilizer to improve the soil. The classification of hazardous waste is conducive to the harmless treatment of waste and the reduction of environmental pollution. Recyclable waste is classified and turned into treasure, which not only reduces the demand of raw materials, but also reduces the emission of carbon dioxide. Garbage sorting can also reduce the workload of sanitation workers.
Let's take action together to reduce garbage production, effectively classify and recycle garbage, reduce pollution, protect the environment, and make our homes better!
