Not only will that be happening,
but on the 3rd there will also be an assembly that explains how you can help to
protect the environment in Cayman.
“Car pollution is not very good for
air, so it’s not healthy for people,” Emma said. “I think car pollution is
harmful for the earth and must be stopped.”
“I think car pollution is harmful
because of the greenhouse gases that it produces,” added Javid, another Cayman
Prep 6B student.
Did you know?
The problem of car pollution has
been ignored for 40 years.

How you can help
If someone is going the same way as
you then give them a lift.
If you live close to the
supermarket then walk, don’t drive. Then you don’t have to go to the gym.
“Using your car less and carpooling
is good for the environment because it causes less pollution,” confirmed Kaya,
one of the other Cayman Prep 6B students.
