Audio script:

Good morning, everybody!

Today, I’ll continue my talk about green lifestyles. While green living has surely brought numerous benefits to both people and the environment, there are also some disadvantages including: time, limited options and, most importantly, cost.

While many practices related to going green are designed to save money, green living can be quite expensive. For example, energy efficient appliances are designed to use less electricity, but they often come with a high price tag. Secondly, time can also be a big problem. Nowadays, more and more people are trying to adopt budget-friendly ways to have a green lifestyle. However, they still have to face the fact that growing their own food takes time as they are not professional farmers. For instance, if you want to grow an organic cabbage, you will have to spend on average one month more than the three months’ time spent on a conventional cabbage. For those reasons, green products are usually more expensive and the investors need to wait longer to get their investment back.

The limitation of options can also be an obstacle. Although today there are more opportunities for manufacturers to go green and compete in a free market, for example, there are still not enough green alternatives for this. There are limitations in colours, materials, and fabrics.

However, I strongly believe that there is no reason why we should not join the green movement. Though there are some limitations, the benefits to people’s health and the environment will be much more considerable.

The line graph compares the number of Internet users with mobile device users during a period of nine years from 2005 to 2014.

As can be seen, the number of Internet users has been rising gradually from 2005. Starting from about 1,000 million users in 2005, the number of people using the Internet increased to just over 1,750 millions in 2009. Since then, the figure has risen at a faster and more stable pace, and as a result, the Internet now has some 2.9 billion users.

Similarly, the number of mobile device users has experienced a steep and constant upward trend for nine years. In the one-year period from 2005 to 2006, the figure remained at relatively the same level. However, over the next four years, the number of people who used mobile phones went up steadily from several millions to 800 millions in 2010. Since then, there has been a considerable growth in the number of users. The number of mobile device users today (in 2014) has reached 2.3 billion.

In conclusion, over the past nine years, both Internet and mobile device usage has increased. However, the substantial rise in the number of mobile device users shows that mobile devices are becoming more and more important.
