World Environment Day (June 5, 2014)

Wendy . Blog Shakespeare slept here! Publicado 03 Junio 2014

What can YOU do to help the environment?
Think about it for a few minutes.

You could turn off the water when you brush your teeth. You could use a canteen for water instead of plastic bottles. You could share a ride to school or take the bus or ride your bike!

.

"Plastic cups, plastic bottles, plastic everywhere.
Get a mug and use it!
Or maybe, you just don't care! - Wendy

There are lots of things you could, can and will do, before we ruin our planet! Just think about the melting icebergs and the polar bears. And what about those islands that are just a meter or two above sea level? They could disappear soon and their inhabitants with them.

"An island paradise today
A ripple in the ocean tomorrow." -Wendy

Look at the bulletin boards in the Main Hallways on campus. Add your ideas. If you come by on Thursday, June 5th between 12:00 and 14:00 you'll get a gift for your endeavor. Design a sticker! Create a slogan! Write a message! I did. Test yourself. See what you can invent in just 10 seconds! -Wendy

"Calor hace. Sí, hace mucho
¿El aire condicionado?
No, no lo uso" - Wendy

Hello Wendy!....I finally find the blog, I hope that this is the way to get into your blog. I agree with you that we all need to do more for the environment. They could start malls and theaters not put the air conditioning so high and every day. In winter heating is also very high, this makes the waste of energy is very high and the planet doesn´t have much energy to expend.

hello wendy, I think all humans are aware of this situation and most of us do not contribute to a change, for me, a big way of contributing to the environment, is all that large companies such as hotels should control more their spending water and electricity. This starts with the mindset of people and is something that over time people will understand. regards

Hi Wendy, I think that protecting the environment need not be a technical and complex matter. Also we should all care for the environment as the pollution causes critical situations regarding the health of the population, unstable working conditions and environmental impacts.

In recent years the world has suffered a loss of health due to human activity. The real problem is not that we are many people or no means to clean but people are not socially aware yet. but I am conscious because I always throw rubbish in the bin and try to help people understand that should do it. probably if all do our part as I said before, we can live in a sustainable environment in which all animals, plants and the air is respected. I also think it is important that once and for all countries that have signed the Kyoto Protocol respect it.

The world is realizing that the only way to stop global warming and other forms of environmental degradation is uniting humanity in a single effort. Caring for the environment is a global issue, as is clearly seen to climate change, without going any further, but the actions must be local. On the other hand, does not help that some try to live green if others do not, whether companies, governments or individuals. The care of the environment knows no political color, or social classes, or rich or poor countries because it affects us all, something that many global, political and business leaders refuse to see. Every facet of our lives are related to the environment: from food to transport, through the use of energy or waste management

I think that enviroment is changing because we don't have enough caution. People know that if we don't change our habits, the world will end. But it seems that people don't think in anyone that themselfs.
