There  are  three  ways  to  reuse  paper.  Firstly, we  should  have  a  separate  wastebasket  for wastepaper.  Secondly,  we  should  keep  sheets  with single printed page for drafting.  If  you follow these simple rules, not only will you save money, but also the environment will  be cleaner

4.4 . A short passage about saving energy

As you know our energy has limitation so saving energy is also our duty. For me, we can save energy in the following ways.

Firstly,  to save energy we should turn off all  electric appliances such as lights,  fans , air conditioners, gas stoves when we don’t use them.

Secondly, we should turn off the faucets when we go out because a dripping faucet can waste 500 liters of water a month.

Finally, we should go to school or go to work on foot or by bicycle or use public transport to save petrol and money. We should also have a mechanic check our motorcycle regularly.

In short, saving energy is essential problem that we must do immediately now if we want to preserve our natural resource of the earth
