On the other hand, do you turn your face and cover your nose because you passed by a heap of garbage by the roadside and smell its foul odor? Listen as I read some paragraphs about helping keep the surroundings clean. Be sure to remember or list down the action words that you hear from the paragraph. Helping Make the Surroundings Clean Everybody enjoys beautiful surroundings that is why, everyone should help maintain an attractive, well-kept, and clean community. You can start in your own home and backyard. Keep your house and its surroundings free from rubbish and standing water. Cultivate a flower garden in your yard. Maintain a vegetable garden and help provide the part of the food requirements of the family. Fruit trees in the yard do not only provide shade but they also give nutritious fruits. Maintaining cleanliness in the yard is easy if you do not allow trash and litter to accumulate. Always pick up bits of trash such as candy wrappers, pieces of paper, dried leaves, and broken branches in the yard. Do not leave empty cans and bottles lying around. Dispose of them if they are not needed. If you have a garden or lawn, trim the grass regularly to keep it neat and to maintain its attractiveness. Always remember: Cleanliness is next to Godliness.
