What is imbalance in the environment?

User Avatar
In the environment, everything is reusable and replenishable but at a certain rate. The certain rate is the much environment can balance itself. Overly consume or damage would break the balance beyond the point of restorable. For the example of imbalance. Fish is replenishable goods of seas. However, near shore fishery using fishing net cause damage to corals where fish would breed and thus imbalance in the environment. This imbalance would results to extinction and no more fish for fishing.

Why do people hate straws more than other forms of plastic waste?

User Avatar
Straws are an easy target for environmentalists because they are so prevalent and because they're simple to replace or forgo. Because they're so small and are often made of multiple types of plastic, single-use plastic straws usually can't be recycled. Because of this, it's estimated that Americans alone use upwards of 100 million straws per day (the often-cited figure of 500 million per day has been disputed, but not by much). Activists have found it relatively easy to convince people to decrease their straw use—some restaurants have started asking if customers want a straw with their drink instead of giving them out automatically. Those restaurants have seen a 50 to 80 percent reduction in single-use plastic straws—that's a big result from a pretty simple fix. Not only is it fairly easy to get people to cut down on straw use, but there are also a multitude of more eco-friendly options on the market, like reusable stainless steel straws or biodegradable paper straws. All in all, it's not really about hating the concept of straws or thinking that straws are a worse form of waste than any other single-use plastic item. It's more about the relative ease of convincing people to limit their straw use or switch to alternative types of straws.

User Avatar
Students, the most powerful stratum of the society, knows the importance of environment and nature sustainability. Nature has endowed us with all the resources to which maximum beneficiary is human beings. Nature has full proof system of protection of all the creatures and environment subject to check on excessive pollution and resources utilisation. Students understand the need for protecting environment and they are prepared to fight against the contamination of atmosphere as todays student is tomorrow's citizen. They show the consciousness and save the various energy sources by going on foot or bicycle to schools and other places. Students may Go to bed in the evening no sooner sun sets. They may develop the habits of Reading and writing in day lights. With their efficient skills of interaction with other parts of the society, they communicate to the society about need for protecting environment. Students may promot use of cold water in day to day activities if temperature/atmosphere permit. Students need to promote the plantation in surrounding areas. They should help the government and non government organisation in preventing pollution from the society by actively participating in programmes and by giving the informations of those who pollutes the environment. Students in all disciplines of education may contribute some from the knowledge in the area of their expertise. They make creative contribution to arrest pollution and protect environment. It is not only industrial pollution but the pollution from various day to day operations that needs checking for protecting environment. Thus student can play a pivotal role in changing the scenario of protecting environment.
