A : Hi….what will you do with those things?
B : I will throw them away. I don’t need them anymore.
A :Don’t throw those electronic waste carelessly! It’s dangerous for our environment!
B : Listen to me! It’s none of your business. These things are mine. Please leave me alone!
A : We should protect our environment as good as possible, because it can influence our lives.
B :Really?? What happens with this broken cell-phones? Broken computer? Should I keep them and fill up my house with these unuseful things?
A : I don’t say that. But do you know that every year more than 10.000 of computer monitors and TV become obsolete? Electronic waste is toxic and contaminate the soil.
B : How do you know it?
A :Look at this. This battery contains lithium, this microchip contains arsenic, phosphorus, nitric acid, sulfuric acid, and more hazardous materials. Those materials are not just contaminate the soil, but they can damage the brain and give bad effects for our health.
B :Oh… I see. So where should I throw these things?
A :You can drop your electronic waste in the box network or sell them to be recycled.
B :Alright, I think you right. Sorry for being rude.
A : It’s ok.
Benn : Kevin,…let’s join to the beach!
Kevin : The beach?! I’m too lazy to go there. Why don’t we go to somewhere else Kevin?
Benn :There is a community work. We will clean the beach. We will collect plastic garbage too.
Kevin : What for! It’s government’s responsibility. Moreover, why should we collect all of the plastic garbage? What will you do with it?
Benn : Kevin, you don’t know the harm of the plastic to the ocean? Plastic is non biodegradable. It can pollute the ocean and in turn, it can harm the water and also the fish, the ocean environment. We should care about what happens to the ocean.
Kevin : But what will you do with the garbage?
Benn :We will take all af the plastic to the company that can re-use the plastic to be recycling products.
Kevin : Who will bring all of the garbage to the company?
Benn : We can give it to the scavenger. The scavenger do this job all the time. They sell plastic, glass, metal to the company to be recycled.
Kevin : Oh I see, alright I’ll join you.
A : Do you join a non-profit organization?
B : Yes I do.
A : What motivates you to join it?
B : Because I see many people still unaware about their own environment, and in fact we face
a lot of destructions.
A : What efforts have you done to promote a healthy environment?
B : Personally, I try as much as possible not to use plastic bags. We do some campaigns to
change people’s mind about a healthy environment.
A : Could you tell me about the campaign?
B : We produce many posters about the harm of bad behaviour toward environment.
A : What are they?
B : A lot of disasters caused by damaged ecosystem such as major flood, prolonged drought,
climate change, erosion, and many more.
