Recycling and Pollution

Are you aware of the main considerations about the topic of Recycling and Pollution? How do you contribute to heal the world?

 And what about? Plastic pollution

Do you recycle?

 Here's a listening from the BBC Learning English:

Join Dan and Kate this week as they talk about pollution. How is plastic affecting the environment and what can we do to make the situation better?
This week's question:
How many pieces of plastic are there in each square kilometre of the world’s oceans? Is it:
a) 22,000 pieces of plastic
b) 38,000 pieces of plastic
c) 46,000 pieces of plastic
Listen out for the answer in the programme!

For further practice on the same topic, you could have a look at this vocabulary handout.

On the other hand, we could also read some about Pollution by the New York Times:

 Obama Seeks to Curb Auto Pollution

President Obama directed the Environmental Protection Agency to reconsider the Bush administration's past rejection of a California application to regulate auto pollution.

By the same token, today we were reading through a text about Organic food, however, we find it a bit complicated, so we'd better work on some vocabulary and words through this glossary, which is organised according to the words'order from the very first word until the last one. I hope you can find the glossary and the answer key useful for the better understanding of the whole text.
