The big picture

Comment on Li Xing's column "Bottled water is not so eco-friendly (China Daily, July 5)

Yes, some things in excess are not good for either consumer or manufacturer - whether for ecology or living standards in general.

But I think you should have addressed the companies who pollute the rivers and streams for profits as more important than Tibet spring water available in your local market.

Li Xing's column on water is all very true.

Here in the US, I encourage people to stop using all plastic because more and more research is showing that most plastic is leaching toxic chemicals into our food - especially into water in those plastic bottles.

I encourage families to use home filtration systems and to use what we call "point of use" purification systems for drinking and cooking.

Fight pollution

Comments on "Ban slapped on polluting cities, zones" (China Daily, July 4)

I applaud the Chinese government's policies in preventing pollution and I sincerely appeal to all local officials to heed these policies.

What can money do if we destroy the most necessary and basic things in life: air, water and land? These life-sustaining natural elements must be protected. Safeguarding them must take precedence over all profits.

The government can only do so much. It depends on all of us, especially those responsible locally, to help protect our motherland.

Gates' man

Comment on "Becoming Bill Gates' right-hand man." (China Daily, July 5)

Zhang certainly not only made China proud but those of Chinese descent all over the world. Mr Gates is a man of wisdom and he saw beyond color and creed.
