ELS Burgas – Deforestation


Listen to two students from ELS “Geo  Milev” in Burgas, Bulgaria – Christina Stefanova and Silyana Mihaleva from 9.d class. They are talking about deforestation.

Deforestation is harmful to the environment as it leads to the cutting down of millions of trees every day for paper, wood, and furniture. Using electronic alternatives, recycling paper, and planting trees can help. Teenagers should be encouraged to participate in tree planting campaigns. Successful campaigns like Plants for the Planet have trained children and youth worldwide about the climate crisis. Bulgaria plans to reforest a large area by planting 100 million trees by 2030. Forests are important for biodiversity, provide jobs, and have medicinal plants. Using alternative materials for furniture and recycling old wooden furniture can reduce tree cutting. Saving the planet requires using less, recycling, and planting more trees.
