My hometown is a small town . It is a beautiful place . But not many years ago , with the development of industry , the place was seriously polluted . Heavy smoke and waste water from factory made the air and rivers dirty . In the narrow , dirty streets you could see people sitting and throwing litters here and there .
In recent years , however , people have realized the importance of protecting the environment . They have planted a lot of trees and the air becoming fresher and fresher . You can see fish swimming in clean rivers and birds flying among the trees . There are wide streets with grass and beautiful flowers on both sides .
The changes in my hometown is so great !
