    There are many things that we as individuals can do to stop the destruction of the environment. We should take green steps, that is, change our habits and lifestyles to stop polluting and harming the world around us. After some contemplation, I know what I can do to contribute towards saving our environment. I will practise the three 'R's - reduce, recycle and reuse - my dictum in life. I will not be part of the use-and-throw society. Firstly, I can reduce consumption of paper by using handkerchiefs. This will definitely save many trees. Every kilogram of paper I do not use can save 2.5 kg of greenhouse gases. I will also say "No7 to plastic bags. Plastic is not biodegradable. How many times have we read from the newspapers of fish being choked to death because of plastic bags? I will instead carry a cloth bag with me to carry all my shopping. As a result, there will be less littering and pollution. Moreover, I will add to my "No" list of disposables, especially Styrofoam and polystyrene containers. Again, I will go everywhere prepared. For my takeaways, I will bring my own tiffin carriers and containers.
    Which of the following would be a green step, according to the passage ?

    A) Using tissue paper to wipe hands

    B) Avoiding cloth bags

    C) Drinking home-made juices
