People should do in their everyday lives to conserve natural resources and preserve the environment. Firstly, we should conserve natural resources. In this age, many people around the world use natural resource. That is very useful in our lives. For example, we can watch TV, we can listen music, we can cook, we can spend warm when cold winter comes because of natural resource. So that affect all our lives and we need that necessarily. But nowadays, people spend a lot of natural resource. It's a big problem in the world. Because it is limited. If we don't conserve natural resource, it will be gone once and for all. That day comes, how can we go from america to japan, how can we cook, how can we do at deep dark night? We cann't everything. Secondly, we should preserve the environment. We positively need environment which are like air, clean round, clean water to live. As you know, if some environment is broken we cannot live. However sometimes, we pollute environment. It make environment break and destroy. So terrible natural disaster happen like big flood, global warming. As a result a lot of people die from those. If we don't keep environment, we cann't live in the earth anymore. Therefore people should conserve natural resources and preserve the environment.

More than two thirds of the earth is covered by water but less than 1% is freshwater , 97% is too salty and the rest is ice. Every day, there are many simple, practical things we can do in the house, when you're pottering around outdoors or if you are at work to conserve water, save money and help the environment. Should we do daily practical things to save water? Some people don’t take of saving the environment of a looming water crisis. But we should avoid this disaster by doing simple daily things. For example, Rain is supposed to be drinking water, so we should use it to recover to something else with a rainwater tank rebates. We shouldn’t take a shower over 15min, waste water is a waste of money and it’s also bad for the environment. In Perth, people use a system call “wastewater”, today more than 1.5 million people live in the Perth metropolitan area and produce 335 million litres of wastewater every day. Wastewater is the spent or used water from a community. It comes from domestic, commercial and industrial sources. With that system we can save a lot of water. We should keep freshwater clean, so that it can continue to support life on earth. We can use the same water twice, we call it the ‘’grey water’’. So it is with simple everyday practical things that we can save our planet from a shortage of water worldwide scale. Razz

One of the most important solution to preserve our environment and conserve our natural resources is obviously RECYCLING. Recycling has many different meanings but the most common one is related on the process of remanufacturing old goods to new products. Wasted products as glass, plastic and paper are collected, cleaned and arranged into very similar items than the original’s one. Thus, it is primordial that people sort the wastes into the correct garbage to be recycled. Aluminium for example is a very heavy polluted materiel to produce due to its raw state which doesn’t naturally exist, so it has to be extracted from mine, transported and manufactured before being useable. The energy’s gain saved while recycling one aluminium’s can could run a TV for three hours. However, before even throwing any products away, we should try to REUSE them, see if any of your friends, entourage or charity could not use them again. Even though reducing our consumption of energy and reusing our old items instead of frenetically throwing them away appear as truths that no one can discuss, some people might disagree on the efficiency of recycling. Specialists maintain that in certain cases, particularly for plastics, recycling doesn’t prevail as the right solution to preserve our environment because the balance between the energy’s gain and demand is not worth. This came as the result of that recycling involves expensive processes which include transports, manufacturing and industrialisation which contribute to increase the original pollution.
