Individuals can do nothing to improve the environment; only governments and large companies can make a big difference. To what extent do you agree or disagree.

  Man and his
environment
are an entity, not one can do without the other. The topic of whether the
government
and big companies or individuals could make an impact in caring for the
environment
remains a very controversial issue. In my opinion,
i
refers to the speaker or writer
I
stronlgy
with strength or in a strong manner
strongly
disagree with the notion that individuals cannot do anything to improve the
environment
, because the bulk of the work rests
on
Suggestion
with
the people, as they have the greatest ability to make a difference and enforce the rule of law.   
First
and foremost, individuals make up the
government
,
coporations
a business firm whose articles of incorporation have been approved in some state
corporation
and the society at large. If each individual can care for and improve his or her own personal space and surroundings,
then
the world will be better for it
.
Accept space
.
Furthermore
, even though the
government
is responsible for environmental policies, it is the job of the people to follow and implement
this policies
Suggestion
this policy
these policies
, as well as to report
deterents
something immaterial that interferes with or delays action or progress
deterrents
to the authorities.
For instance
, in Lagos, Nigeria, in 2017, a survey was carried out to discover how the state was able to reduce public disposal of waste. It was revealed that
this
act reduced by 70%, when the people of the community become vigilant and reported people who openly littered the
environment
to the appropriate authorities.
This
proves
ttat
pointing out something
that
the people are majorly responsible for the
environment
.
Accept space
.
  
Secondly
,
although
some schools of thought can argue that large companies and the
government
, have the manpower, infrastructure and financial capability to improve the
environment
, their visions cannot be
actualised
make real or concrete; give reality or substance to
actualized
if the people that constitute them do not have the same drive.
In addition
, it falls on individuals to want to make the world a better and clean space
,
Accept space
,
not only for humans but for all living creatures as well.
For example
, little things like making sure the waste generated at work places, go to the proper recycling bins and ensuring that the company or organizations, whether publicly or privately owned, make use of
ecofriendly
products, makes a huge difference.    In conclusion, the question of who is in the best position to make a difference to improve the state of the surroundings, is it the
government
,
coporate
of or belonging to a corporation
corporate
bodies or individuals? Is becoming increasingly popular. I strongly disagree with the opinion that people can do nothing to improve the
environment
because they make up even the
government
and are the drivers of change.
