    Nowadays, people are paying more attention to the protection
    of the environment. Then what is considered the real protection
    of the environment?

    在一次关于环境保护的征文活动中,因为奖金特别高,所以参加的人非常多。其中,
    很多人的文章写得很好。但让人吃惊的是,得到第一名的却是一个中学生。

    There was once a writing competition activity on the protection of
    the environment. Because the prize money was exceptionally good,
    there were a lot of people who participated. Among them, many people
    wrote very good articles. But people were surprised that the one who got
    first prize was a high school student.

    那只是一篇一般的文章,为什么能得到第一名呢?
    It was just a general article. How did it win first prize?

    一位工作人员说:“他的文章也许不是最好的,但是,在所有的人中,只有他一个人的
    文章是双面打印的。

    A staff member said: “his article may not be the best, but in all of those,
    only his article is two-sided printing.”

    我们都知道,双面打印可以节约很多纸。而如果能节约4000张纸,就可以保护一棵树。
    所以,只有他才做到了环保!”

    We all know that the two-sided printing can save a lot of paper. If we can
    save 4,000 sheets of paper, we can protect a tree. Therefore, only he can be
    environmental friendly.
