Unformatted text preview: 22 Acacia Avenue North Brunswick, NJ 08902 November 5, 2009 Mr. Mark N. Mauriello Department of Environmental Protection 401 E. State St., 7th Floor, East Wing Trenton, NJ 08625 Dear Mr. Mauriello, I am writing to express my concern in the rise of skin cancer rates in the city of New Brunswick due to a lack of awareness of students in ozone depletion, UV radiation and protection from the sun. As the commissioner of the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) in the state of New Jersey, you and your fellow employees work towards keeping the environment a safe and healthy place for everyone. By teaching students ranging from elementary to high school about the harmful effects of UV radiation and ozone depletion, a major improvement in childhood education and awareness about them can occur. The proper knowledge of adolescents of these environmental issues can significantly impact the next generation by reducing the incidence of illness resulting from exposure to the sun. Other regions around the world such as Australia have successfully implemented education programs about the dangers of UV radiation in a way that the majority of the population is aware of its harmful effects and of several ways to prevent these effects from occurring. I have attached all of the information regarding the educational campaign that I am planning below. This campaign will allow many residents in New Brunswick to live safe and healthy lives, while also satisfying the mission of the Department of Environmental Protection to serve its community properly. As someone who works for a department that falls under the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), I urge you to consider the benefits involved for the future in the lives of many children and adolescents in New Brunswick as this is a great opportunity for you to give back to the community in a different way. I hope that you find that my proposal is acceptable and that the problem it describes is significant and something which needs to be pursued to be solved in the near future. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me by email at 000000@eden.rutgers.edu or by phone at 732-555- 5555. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
