Letter to the editor: Pollution is a concern for everyone

June Samulak’s Grade 3 and 4 class recently completed an assignment where students penned letters to the editor of the Trail Times.

June Samulak’s Grade 3 and 4 class at Fruitvale Elementary School recently completed an assignment where students penned letters to the editor of the Trail Times. Here is a sampling of their efforts.

An issue that my family and I feel needs to be a priority is pollution.

Not only does pollution smell bad but it is also harming people, animals and the environment.

Animals are dying from eating garbage that people litter, the air we breathe and water we drink is not as good as it should be and the ice in the Arctic is melting because of global warming.

People need to put their garbage into garbage cans, drive less and learn more about why pollution is bad.

It makes me feel sad when I think about how pollution is hurting people, animals and our environment.

The Earth is our home and if we ant to keep it that way we need to take care of it.
