Sustainability argument writing...

Have you ever thought about what the world would be like if everyone took care of the environment, i.e, took time to do things like plant trees and grow our own vegetables and fruit in our own gardens at home, managed their waste disposal and thought about how much CO2 they were creating and letting off into our beautiful world that used to be much more clean and green! I am writing to inform you of how i feel about sustainability and tell you about how we are living and how it is effecting our planet... our ONE and ONLY planet!

Living sustainable is definitely better!
firstly, it is better because we need to keep the planet green for future generations. (our childrens, childrens children)
we are using so many things from unrenewable sources which is using up our world. Someone i know once said "what is the point in trying to make a difference, we are only a few people, we will not make anything change". If everyone thinks like this, in a negative way, then of course nothing will change. But if everyone does something little then we could do amazing things! I was thinking the other day, adults are always telling us to go play outside... well, in years to come if the world is going to carry on like this, going out side for a play will not be the best option! Imagine this... you are sitting inside and its quite a nice day, you want to go outside and hangout with your friends so you go to your mom and say that you are going out side for a while and will be back soon. Your mom says "you cant go outside it is to polluted, rather stay indoors"! If you think about it that is the way we are heading, soon that is the way it will be like! Just think about it for a while.

Secondly, we need to keep the level of pollution down so that plants and trees have a natural and healthy environmentto live in. I personlly think that we are getting more and more gready as the years pass and we are cutting down things like trees just so that everyone can have atleast 10 packets of paper in their house! Then, we are creating so mch waste from it! It is a lovely feeling to walk in a forest full of lutious green trees and have plants and flowers growing in our gardens, dont you think? Even these days you can see how the world is changing so fast! People are wanting bigger and bigger houses and more spacious yards, more and more buildings are being built, i.e. hotels, houses, supermarkets, malls and many more things. If you think about it our parents survived without huge mansions, and all the luxuries that we hae these days. If everyone just took what they needed then our planet would do okay, but at this rate in a few years we are going to need five earths to keep us as humans going with all our priorities and so called "needs".

I was thinking about it and i am sure that all the pollution in the world affects us as humans, i mean it can not be doing our bodies any good, i know that it would only afecct us a tiny bit, but arent scientists finding all these disceases and sicknesses that wern't even thought of years ago?
come on guys lets keep New Zealand clean and green! New Zealand is a beautiful country, i know, there are beautiful plants trees and nice birds too. If everyone does their bit to be sustainable then we might actually get somewhere.

thanks for reading my sustainability argument and i hope you learnt something and will try and make a difference from now on, if you are not already doing so.

In class we had to write ideas of how we could make a difference to our clean green environment. Because we have been doing a lot of work on sustainability in class we wrote some excellent ideas that people came up with and we are working on putting those ideas into action. Some of the things that i said were as follows:
Putting plastic bottles and tins into recycling, instead of the rubbish bin.
Turning eletrical appliences off at the wall.
Having shorter showers, and saving water.
I hope you have got some good ideas from this post and you can start saving our beautiful planet earth! : ]

In class we are learning about economics, we have learnt alot so far and we have learnt some useful information!

When the producer is making a product, that is the supply of something, when the consumers want something or when they are having their say that is the demand that they are giving. The equilibrium point is when the supply and the demand of a certain product cross over. The price of a product is how much the consumers have to be able to pay for a product, and the quantity of a product is how much stock or amount they have of it. The consumer is the person who buys the product. The producer is the person who creates the product, graphs show helpful information in easy to read steps, the relationship is between the producer and the consumer.

I got all my helpful information on the website below.

Handy Tips

We are learning about Sustainability in our class as you have probably realized, so i thought while we are on this topic i might aswell give you some tips on how to keep our beautiful earth green!

First of all plant a tree, trees aswell as give us oxagen, soak up all the nasty gases in our atmostphere!

When you are cold and think of turning on the heater, don't, rather put on a jersey or another t-shirt, or even longer pants!

When you are about to get in a car or bus, think first, do you really have to? Would you be able to ride a bicycle to where you are going? Instead of making more fumes in our atmosphere from petrol, and that sort of stuff, GO GREEN : ]

Buy local fruits and veges, or encourage your parent to! By supporting imported goods you are contributing to gases and fumes from ships and planes that they use to get goods overseas!

You could even contact you energy supliers and ask if the energy they suply you with is from renueble sources, if not you could swich to another company.
But to prevent all the bad things in our environment

Hello, everyone.
This is the best sustainability blog you will ever see!
For me "sustainability" means making something last or making and keeping the world green, that sort of thing.
In class we are learning a bit about what is around us(the world, global warming and how we can help).
Have a look around my blog, check out my pictures and leave some intellegent comments about what sustainability means to you.
