It goes without saying that solving environmental problems is an urgent thing to do. Some people think that home-working is really helpful in terms of saving our planet, whereas others consider that telecommuting has nothing to do with ecology.

I think that teleworking helps a lot in terms of saving our planet. First of all, there are fewer people who use cars to commute. As a result, the air becomes less polluted. Secondly, remote workers typically use cloud-based applications to send messages and create documents. This results in less paper consumption each day. The less paper people use, the more trees are saved.

However, there are some people who have a different view on this issue. They believe that environmental problems cannot be solved with the help of telecommuting. To start with, not many people work from home. The number of cars is not reduced significantly and therefore, it has no effect on air pollution. Furthermore, home-base telecommuting is likely to create trips within the area as people have flexible working schedule. Consequently, more traffic in local areas means even more environmental pollution.

I do not agree with the opinion mentioned above. Working from home is a good solution to environmental problems. Even a small reduction in the number of cars will reduce air pollution. Within a short distance, people will walk or ride bikes thereby saving nature.

In conclusion, I would like to state that there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight working from home seems to be totally useless, but in actual fact it has a positive effect on nature. Thus, I strongly believe that home working helps to solve environmental problems.
