Sustainibility Argument Writing.

Why You Should Be Sustainable.

Wouldn't it be nice for everyone to be healthy and happy and for the world to be a more clean, green longer lasting place?! We would all live longer and the world would be just so fantastic and thriving on seedlings and having things being grown on it. Well, I'm here to inform you about some of the things you can do to have your part on helping our environment be more sustainable and to tell you my opinion on why I think it is better to be sustainable.

So firstly, do you want our planet to be a safe healthy environment now and in the future? When you grow up and possibly have children and when they grow up, do you want them to live in a safe, healthy environment? I'm sure your compassionate enough to care about that. So if we continue living the same way we have been then there quite possibly may not be a planet left for us to live on. Did you know there is only approximately 1.32nd of the earth left for growing natural, renewable sources on! That's pretty small, and when I'm dead and gone there's probably be even less than that. I worry and think about the future generations of not just my family but everyone else too. It's a very scary, serious issue. And everyone should be immensely concerned.

Secondly, it is so important that we don't use up all of our natural, easily-renewed sources, because like I said we only have approximately 1.32nd of the earth left for growing organic sources on, and this is because we have been using too much nonrenewable sources and wasting valuable land space we can't get back and now we've taken up all our land when we could just used it sensibly in the first place! I don't think people realise how much they can do to have their part in saving the planet now while we've got the chance, and how simple it can be, I'm not saying it's the simplest of tasks, but just the little things in life like using the green bags at the supermarket instead of plastic bags, or instead of an over packaged packet of chips you could just have a carrot or an apple?! It's not overly hard it's just a matter of not being lazy and thinking everyone else is going to do something so that means you don't have to, because if we all think like that then obviously nothings going to get done about it. Another thing is that in this time of recession we should be helping ourselves and growing our own produce to support ourselves, since all the prices of everything is shooting up lately. Maybe one weekend you should just not plan anything and take the time to plant some trees and make a vegetable garden, you could try making a compost bin or a worm farm. How about you Google it? I'm sure there are millions of ideas on the net to help you on your road to being sustainable.

You know if we're lucky we may even be able to regain more growing space to improve that pitiful 1.32nd?! But that would only be if everyone on this planet helped out in some way, shape or form. But i think there is a very slim chance of that happening. It would be great to get more land space, because it would encourage people to actually grow more of our own fresh and healthy produce instead of always buying that terrible processed stuff! It would A) be better for humans and our health and B) It'd be better for the world financially, because we would be saving money on the groceries we would be buying, except we're not because we would be growing our own stuff. Having our own extra land space for growing our own fresh, fruit and vegetables would probably encourage people to stop buying and eating the yucky, chemical filled, processed junk we all seem to enjoy, which can't be good for you. You know if everyone lived healthily then the years for an average human to live would probably increase, because of having a healthy diet full of you own organic food and by breathing in the healthy air that isn't polluted.

So I have just stated many reasons why you should be sustainable and many ways and ideas to help on your road to doing that. A sustainable life is the healthiest, most economical choice, you need to make a stand against unsustainable things and do the most you can to help it. We can change the world, but it's now or never for us and the planet. Come on New Zealand, help make a difference.
