Should Fireworks Be Allowed for Spring Festival Celebrations?
Sample1
Fireworks Shouldn’t Be Allowed for Spring Festival Celebrations
During the Spring Festival, Chinese people festoon their houses with paper scrolls and let off firecrackers to greet the arrival of the new year. Some Chinese believe Spring Festival would never be the same without fireworks. However, I agree with those who hold the opposite view. Fireworks should be banned for safety and environmental reasons. The cost of human life far outweighs maintaining festival tradition. The ways to celebrate traditional festivals can also be modernized and updated along with the rapid development of high technology.
On the one hand, lighting of firecrackers has caused serious injuries and air pollution, which casts shadow over the joyous ambiance. Statistics show that from October 2003 to February 2004, the injury and death toll caused by Spring Festival fireworks in Beijing hit 307 and four respectively. Illegal fireworks, shoddy fireworks and fireworks falling short of environment-friendly standards were respectively 147 percent, 120 percent and 100 percent up over the quantity of the previous year. According to a doctor, every year hospitals see a surge of two kinds of emergency cases when Spring Festival arrives. One is indigestion caused by overeating while the other is firework-related eye injuries. Various forms of fireworks-related pollution, including noise, smoke, dust pollution, and paper wrapping pollution, all pose potential danger to people’s health.
On the other hand, our adoption of traditional culture should be based on a critical approach. Although letting off firecrackers is part of Chinese tradition, it is haphazard and perilous with many disadvantages, such as wasting resources, pollution and safety risks. In fact, the effects of a ban on fireworks are quite obvious. We do want joviality for the celebration, but do we also want clean air for our health and safety guarantee for thousands of families? Gradually, the public will recognize the benefits of the ban and develop some clean and pollution-free ways of celebration.
The importance of safety and clean air is definitely greater than observation of a festival tradition. Therefore, a long-term ban should be under way for the well being of the general public. We will have a greater time for Spring Festival with safety and clean air instead of fireworks.

Some supermarkets are considering charging for plastic shopping bags instead of giving them free. It is claimed to aim at the reduction of environmental pollution caused by randomly disposed plastic bags. What’s your opinion on it from a consumer’s viewpoint? Write a composition of about 400 words to state your view.
In the first part of your essay you should state clearly your main argument, and in the second part you should support your argument with appropriate details. In the last part you should bring what you have written to a natural conclusion or make a summary.
You should supply an appropriate title for your essay.

Sample 1
It Is Not Effective to Charge for Plastic Bags
One day when waiting for your groceries to be packed into free plastic bags, you may be surprised if the cashier at the check-out tells you the bags are extra, and you’d better believe it. Today, the pollution resulting from plastic bags has become a big threat to urban environment. Though daily use of free bags in supermarkets is tremendous in number, I don’t think consumers’ paying for plastic bags can take effect in controlling pollution.
To begin with, it is unfair that only consumers should shoulder the responsibility of environmental pollution caused by supermarket plastic bags, providing free plastic shopping bags to customers is a marketing strategy adopted by supermarkets. Although supermarkets have to pay for the plastic bags, customers bring them far greater economic rewards in comparison to this minimal cost. From this point of view, it is the supermarkets that have gained the hidden profits through free plastic bags while consumers only get shopping conveniences they should have had.
In addition, it is over-optimistic and a bit simple-minded to contend that charging for plastic shopping bags can help ease pollution problem. My own observation tells me that in most supermarkets plastic bags are offered by salespeople according to customers’ actual needs. Since the need for shopping bags does exist, charging for those bags is not so effective and it is impossible to resolve the current waste and pollution problems thoroughly. After all, with the improvement in people’s living standards, it is unrealistic to expect people to bring their own shopping baskets to the supermarket. Moreover, many people usually go to the supermarket after work for convenience, how call they take what they need home without using the plastic shopping bags? Pollution is attributed to various causes and abolition of shopping bags merely addresses the very tip of the iceberg.
In short, it is not a wise policy to charge shopping bags just on the ground that it is likely to become a pollutant. Joint efforts should be made to deal with the pollution by various means, which include promoting the application of degradable plastic bags, seeking environmentally friendly substitutes, and strengthening supermarkets’ management over free plastic bags.
