Write an essay on either of the following topics:
- a) Compare the ecological footprint of two countries.
- b) Think of an item you could recycle. Describe how you can create something from this item, and demonstrate how this item would be useful to the environment.
- c) Water is life. There is the same amount of water now on Earth as when it was first created. For us, it’s easy…we turn on the tap and there it is. Yet in Africa and Asia, women and children spend about 6 hours a day and walk an average of 3.7 miles a day just to collect water, according to water.org. This is time they could be spending in school or caring for their families. Think of five ways you and your family could conserve water so that everyone can do their part.
- d) Studies show that very few people recycle. Why should we recycle and how would you convince your family to do it?
