Introduction + Main Points

Recycling is the Solution to Pollution

  • Americans are not fully aware of pollution

  • Recycling should be enforced more strictly

  • Criminals should have to clean up trash during their time in prison


America has to become more aware of pollution

America has to become more aware of pollution

  • Some cities like San Diego for example use direct mailers, TV ads, and interactive web sites, to increase public awareness.

  • Americans should understand that it is morally and ethically right to recycle.

  • It can improve our overall health.

  • It is a required by law in Philadelphia that every building recycles.

Counter arguments against pollution awareness

Counter Arguments against pollution awareness

  • Some might argue that people should be allowed to manage their waste w/o interference of the law

    BUT…

    If humans produce trash they should agree that it is morally and LAWFULLY responsible to clean it up !


Recycling should be enforced more strictly

Recycling should be enforced more strictly

  • Stronger fines should be made for dumping and littering.

  • In some cities, like Philadelphia there is a minimum fine of $300 dollars for littering

  • The fine for dumping in Philadelphia is $50000 for first time offenders, double for second time offenders.

Counter arguments against enforcing recycling

Counter arguments against enforcing recycling

  • People are hard headed and complain that the fines are high enough already

    But…

    It really is a major problem and that if fines were raised most people would think twice about littering.


Criminals in jail have should have to clean up trash during time in prison

Criminals in jail have should have to clean up trash during time in prison

  • In rare occasions some criminals might be seen on the side of the road cleaning up trash, this should be put into practice more often.

  • Instead of a 6 month jail sentence Chris Brown opted to clean up trash and graffiti for his conviction of assault on his girlfriend.

  • This is a very constructive way of paying back society for committing their crimes.

Counter arguments of criminals cleaning up trash

Counter arguments of criminals cleaning up trash

  • A possible argument might be that criminals still have rights and should not have to pick up others trash

    But…

    If someone is in jail b/c of a crime they committed they should have to repay society by doing constructive things like recycling trash
