save the planet

Picture this,in the artic you see a polar bear going up north with her two cubs because her home is destroyed by pollution and global warming.Is it my fault that she has no home. CRACK! Ice breaks she swims, darkness surrounds her then she lies on the ocean floor, lifeless. What will her cubs do now? million of animals go through this everyday. Today I will explain to you why million of animals bear this burdened.
Which country do you think damages the environment the most? You might think developed countries like Canada, England and Australia pollute the most… but the truth is that underdeveloped countries like Brazil, china and Indonesia are the some of the top polluters in the world. You might be shocked that the USA comes 2nd in the world top (by national Geographic’s) if you want to keep our planet healthy we got to do something, fast! Luckily there are some countries, they help keep our environment clean, 
e.g Singapore, Australia and many other countries in Europe. Fun fact, did you know that Switzerland is the cleanest country in the world.
When we pollute we have consequences for our action! Did you know that economies will collapse because of pollution. Animal and humans will die out because of droughts, storms and other natural disasters. Some of these disasters are happening right now. 
E.g. due to climate change animals are dying quickly also you might think pollution only happens on land, in the air and in the sea, well think again, there are also other ways that people pollute, like noise pollution, light pollution and radioactive pollution. We should also avoid these types of pollutions and all other pollution. If we don’t want to make earth a war zone.

So, you might be wondering how can we tell these underdeveloped countries to stop polluting or help the animals those who are suffering from pollution? Although you cannot directly help you can still do small things to make a big difference. Remember that a little spark ignite the flame. It takes a little seed to grow a tree. Some ways to help is use less air conditioning, avoid driving to near destination, and don’t litter! Fun fact: did you know that it takes 1800 gallon of water to grow the cotton for 1 pair of blue jeans !!!that’s ridiculous! 

But no need to fear there still hope. Some companies have creative ways to save our environment, like the Eco Laundry company, Google nest and Dell. There are also lots of famous people who have given money or help the environment a lot. Such as Brad Pitt. Leonardo DiCaprio and Angelina Jolie. So, if we do the simple things together, we will save our environment.

We talked about the countries that pollute the most and the least we talked about the consequences of pollution and the types of pollution. We also talked about how we can help save the world. Now it is your turn. I challenge all of you to help in at least three ways. Let’s stop pollution… WHO’S WITH ME !!!
