Nowadays people are encouraged to use their own used bags when go shopping to reduce waste, and people who do not bring their own bags will be charged for some fees, talk about the advantages and disadvantages of this policy.
I think the advantage is quite obvious. Firstly, it will raise the public’s awareness of protecting environment. We all have been used to using plastics like bags. It seems that there is no cost for this kind of behaviors. To make everyone pay, even just a penny, for the things that might do harm to the environment will let them take environment protection seriously again. However, there is also a significant demerit. Because it’s really inconvenient to bring a bag with us when we are going to a supermarket. And the fee usually is not high. Although they will realize the plastic bags are harmful to the environment, they will keep using it. Thus, the policy will not actually influence individuals’ behavior.
When visiting a museum that allows people to take photographs, do you prefer to take photographs or just simply look around?
Personally, I will choose to take pictures of what I have seen. Because I can read the description of some products carefully after I went home. Usually a museum will be huge. There will just be too many fantastic stuffs for me to take a good look at. But I will have only few hours to stay in it. Thus, when I’m running out of time, I will take some photos of the rest parts of the exhibition. Besides, I like to share impressive things with my friends. I think this is a good way to socialize. For example, I will post some interesting antiques online and let them guess what they are used for. They will always be amazed that we human beings have created so many fantastic inventions in the ancient time.
