I am writing to tell you something about the activity Clear Your Plate Campaign you referred to in your last letter.
Clear Your Plate Campaign is intended to reduce food waste and help students realize how important it is to save food. Before the campaign, many students, unaware of their wasting of food, bought much more than they could eat and even threw the leftovers without a second thought. But encouragingly, knowing the significance of saving food after the campaign, more and more students are beginning to buy a proper amount of food for their meals. Actually, all of them find this mere action not only save food but money as well. They believe this life style is also environmentally friendly.
Personally, it is of great benefit to join in the campaign and form a good habit of clearing the plate. And it is essential to start with ourselves and start from now. Don’t you think so?
I’m looking forward to having your opinions of the campaign.
As is shown in the picture, two men had a big dinner in a restaurant, but much of the food was left and some was even untouched at all. When the waitress asked them to pack the remaining food, they felt very surprised, thinking that it was unbelievable for them to do things like that with too much money in their pocket.
It is a pity that many people act like the two men in the picture. In my view, we should pack the leftovers when we have meals outside. As we all know, saving is a fine tradition for our Chinese people and therefore we shouldn’t waste a bit food. Also, there is not enough food in the world and there are many people starving. In addition, we students should form the habit of saving food and give away some to the people in need. Finally, we have the responsibility to help people around us realize the importance of saving.
Only in this way can we build up an economized society and live a happy and healthy life.
