Writing task 1

The percentage of people, living in urban, rural or city areas has been illustrated in this bar chart. These charts shows the amount of foreigners and nationals living in these areas from 1995 to 2010.

Overall, the charts shows that the percentage of all people living in Australia prefer to live in cities in 2010. Both national citizens and foreigners are more keen on living in cities as opposed to rural or suburban areas.

The people born in Australia experienced a steady decline in percentage of people living in suburban and rural areas between 1995 to 2010. The amount of people living in the city increased from 50% to over 60%

The prefered living situation among foreigners fluctuated a bit between 1995 to 2010. Herein 40% of people born outside of Australia lived in rural areas in 1995. This amount decreased to approximately 5% in 2010. The amount of foreigners living in cities skyrocketed from 60% in 1995 to 80% in 2010.

In conclusion, the bar charts show an overall progression of both foreign and national citizens now living in cities as opposed to rural or suburban areas.

Task 2

You should spend about 40 minutes on this task.

Write about the following topic.

Some people feel that manufacturers and supermarkets have the responsibility to reduce the amount of packaging of goods. Others argue that customers should avoid buying goods with a lot of packaging. Discuss both views and give your opinion.

Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.

You should write at least 250 words.

The use of products and goods with a lot of packaging is a highly controversial topic between people today. A lot of people believe it is the manufacturers and supermarkets responsibility to reduce packaging of goods, while others believe that it is the individuals responsibility to avoid buying products with a lot of wrapping and packaging. I personally believe that it is the individuals responsibility to cease buying products with an increased amount of packaging, since a decrease in demand from customers could prevent further production of these goods.

The people that is of the opinion that it is the manufacturers and supermarkets responsibility to reduce the amount of packaging, believe that these companies have a moral obligation to preserve and protect the environment. In my country it is believed that these companies should be held responsible by the government. For example in Denmark the government provides manufacturers and stores with certain environmental regulations, which also include the amount of material these facilities are allowed to use for packaging. This helps reduce environmental harm and provides more responsibility to companies to reduce packaging.

However, the majority of people believe that this problem is an individual responsibility. This opinion considers that the moral obligation falls on the individual and not the company. The people who believe that it is an individual responsibility to not buy these products, believe that a decreased demand for products that harms the environment will lead to more environmentally friendly products produced.

To summarize, both of these opinions help reduce environmental harm. However, I believe that it is the individuals responisibility to not purchase overly packaged products, since this decrease in demand would lead to less production of these goods.
