"Every Christmas millions of trees are cut down for our front rooms. By the time they reach garden centres, the trees are damaged. Two weeks after being bought, they are thrown away. Although they're more expensive, trees with roots are a better idea — they don't drop needles and are re-usable. Rooted trees are a better option."

"The amount of pollution in our air today is dangerously high. It comes from factories, power stations and motor vehicles. So what can we do to stop this? One of the best things would be to stop using cars altogether. I think it would be a good idea to promote cycling in Britain — it green, gets you around and keeps you fit!"

"Modern technology and fashions make us feel responsible for establishing the symbols of Christmas. But most of them are from long ago. Holly, mistletoe and Yule logs come from Pagan times, the first Christmas trees were displayed in the 1800s. When you celebrate Christmas, remember we have added glitz and vulgarity to the ancient magic of Christmas." NEWSROUND — CEEFAX — RADIO TIMES Advent Contacts PP Info Newsround

The Lottery thrills, but people seem to be getting obsessed. Although money raised goes to good causes, I think more charities which help children should benefit from the fever which has gripped the land."

Some people are allergic to pollen, animals etc, while others get an attack after exercise. There are various ways to treat asthma but it can still be fatal — 2,000 people die from asthma every year." NEWSROUND — CEEFAX — RADIO TIMES Advent Contacts PP Info Newsround
