Today is the Earth Day. Our reporter Nick Ford interviewed several people in the street. This is what they told him:
9:24 Miss Mayfield, a young teacher
I try to tell my students the importance of our relations with wild animals. I take them to zoos and forests, and I avoid using materials that come from wild animals, for example, ivory, which comes from elephants. I don’t wear things made of fur, and I even avoid buying leather shoes. Wool is okay, though－the sheep don’t get hurt!
10:03 Mr. Perdue, a businessman
I don’t use my car for short journeys. I walk or go by bike. It’s good for my health, and it doesn’t pollute the air.
10:30 Tom Pitt, a 14-year-old student
I only buy writing paper and notebooks made from recycled paper. And when I buy something made of wood, like a wooden table, I’ll make sure that the wood comes from a forest where they plant new trees.
11:01 Mr. White, an artist
I’m an artist, and I enjoy recycled art. They are things made out of rubbish－like this model plane made from old containers. In fact, I hate throwing things away. I even keep my old woolen clothes and cotton handkerchiefs and use them for cleaning.
11:35 Ms. Nelson, a policeman
I’m careful not to waste electricity. For example, I always turn the lights off when I leave a room. And I don’t have the TV on when I’m not watching it.
12:00 Mr. Parks, a doctor
I take my empty bottles, jars, and anything else made of glass to the recycling center every week. I try not to buy plastic bottles because you can’t recycle most kinds of plastic.
