An environmentalist on visit to your school suggested the use of three R’s to save the environment. Explain when he meant by three R’s and how you would follows his advice at home.
The three ‘R’s mentioned by the environmentalists are Reduce, Recycle and Reuse.
We can save our environment by practicing these three ‘R’s
1. Reduce: Reduce means using less. An example of this is reducing the wastage of electricity by switching off lights and fans when not required.
2. Recycle: Recycle means collecting the used and discarded items of paper, plastic, glass materials, and sending them to the respective industries for making fresh paper, plastic, glass or metal objects. One should encourage the use of products made from these recycled materials, instead of using products made from fresh materials.
3. Reuse: Reuse means using the same things again and again. For example, one should reuse packing materials such as the cardboard and thermocol coverings of electronic items.
