篇一：reduce waste on campus 校园浪费现象
nowadays, there is too much waste on some campus. you can see students leaving their dorms with lights on. you also find that many a student, after washing their clothes, doesn't bother to turn off the tap, leaving the water running. if you go to the cafeteria at dinner time, you are likely to see tables covered with the remains of all kinds of food.
waste is very harmful. if you are extravagant with your money, you will soon be poor. likewise, if human beings recklessly exploit the natural resources, then they are sure to have a gloomy future. what's more, being wasteful is a bad habit that, like a drug, gradually erodes a human being's virtues. once a person grows wasteful, the virtue of frugality is eroded within him.
as far as i am concerned, i am determined to set a good example to combat waste, trying to use every grain and cent and call on more schoolmates to realize the necessity and importance of frugality. only in this way, i think, can we hope to put an end to the waste on campus as soon as possible.
as is known to all, waste on campus has become a more and more serious problem. we can easily see many students dump a lot of food in the garbage can. some students spend thousands of yuan buying fashionable clothes and so on.
the negative effects of waste can be shown in the following aspects. in the first place, it makes some students dependent on their parents for money, which is harmful to their development. if they don’t learn to support themselves, they will be “useless people” when they graduate.
in the second place, it is not easy for our parents to arrange for our schooling. last but not the least important, there is no denying the fact that our country is still poor. there are many people who cannot go to university and many poor people still need our help.
as far as i am concerned, i should set a good example to reduce waste on campus. first of all, i will refrain from wasting anything, from food to stationery. what’s more, i’m determined to call on more schoolmates to fight against waste.
only through these measures can we hope to reduce waste on campus.
