Many people think it is very important to protect the environment but they make no effort to do it themselves. Why do you think this is the case? What actions should individuals take to protect the environment?

It is true that there is an obvious increase in awareness of protecting the
environment
among the public. Knowing the importance of the
environment
, many
people
do little about it. In
this
essay, I will discuss the reason behind
this
phenomenon and show ways that
individuals
can take to protect the
environment
. There are two main reasons why lots of
people
make

Change the quantifier
fewer

It appears that the quantifier less does not fit with the countable noun efforts. Consider changing the quantifier or the noun.

It seems that efforts may not agree in number with other words in this phrase.

to protect the
environment
.
Firstly
, some
people
think that environmental problems are too big for
individuals
to address.
For example
, many
people
regard these problems, like air pollution and greenhouse gas, as the real ones, which need the international cooperation of countries all over the world, rather than being done by
individuals
.
Secondly
, they
also
reckon governments should be responsible for the action of protecting the
environment
.
For instance
,
although
they know that depleting trees would exert a series of environmental influences,
such
as soil erosion, they still
use
disposable chopsticks as they think abandoning their way of life is unworthy and the government could do it well. In short, those who make little effort to protect the
environment
have ignored the effects that
individuals
can have on it. In my opinion, tons of actions can be adopted by
individuals
to protect our planet. For one thing,
people
can choose to
use
public transport as much as possible, because reducing the utility of private cars could alleviate the gas emission which is the main source of air pollution in cities. Another activity is that recycling
use
plastics
that is
also
the main pollution factor due to their non-degraded nature. Take plastic bags as an example, because of their convenience, many
people
would
use
them when shopping and
then
use
them as garbage bags put in the bin.
As a result
, a great deal of bags is buried under the ground, which could pollute the soil permanently. In a nutshell, ignoring the strength of
individuals
for protecting the
environment
, many
people
do less than talk, but these simple and feasible tips deserve more attention from ordinary
people
.
Therefore
, I firmly believe that average
people
could make great contributions to environmental problems.
