Describe a person who try to protect the environment.
You should say:
who is this person
why you decide to talk about this person
what did this person do
and explain why this person try to protect environment

The environment friendly person I am going to tell you is my grandma. She is already 83 years old, but quite healthy. Every morning after breakfast, she takes a walk in a park nearby, which usually lasts an hour. In the evening, she would sit in front off the house and chat with other old ladies.

The way she protects the environment is quite simple. She insists to bring her own cloth bag to the supermarket to buy some vegetables on her way home from the walk so that she will not need the plastic bags. A year ago, she did not do that. She loved to use the plastic bags because they are light and convenient. But when I told her that plastic bags are almost impossible to dissolve in nature and can kill animals when they accidentally eat them, her behavior changed. Now, wherever she goes, she will take her cloth bag.

Giving up plastic bags and using a cloth bag instead is quite an easy way to protect the environment, but insistence is another thing. Even though we know how harmful plastic is to the environment, sometimes we would still use it because of its convenience.
That is why I admire my grandma. She never forget to bring her cloth bag. If everybody behaves like her, I believe our environment issue will be significantly alleviated in a short time.
