Before a mysterious man known as the Once-ler came to the land of the Lorax, the land was a very gorgeous and breath taking place. The grass was luscious green, the water was crystal clear, and the sky was graceful, I would love to live in an environment such as that. If I had to choose between my environment and the land that houses the Lorax, I would choose my environment. Despite the Land with brown bar-ba-loots, and truffula trees would be lovely, I would have to survive on one food, the truffula tree fruits. I would eventually get tired of the fruit and if I somehow became allergic to the fruit I would be living in an unlivable environment for my standards.
The mysterious man I referred to earlier known as the Once-ler was a business man whom wanted to run his own business. The item the Once-ler had introduced to the Lorax was known as a thneed. In the Once-ler's words he described a thneed as "something everybody needs." However to make a thneed the Once-ler needed only the finest materials, thus he came across the Truffula trees. The truffula trees have the tuffs smoother than silk and was soft like butterfly milk. The Once-ler took his axe and chopped down a truffula tree. He quickly began to weave his thneed. The thneed was a success; soon he began to chop down every tree he needed to support his business (with the help of his family). All the trees eventually fell with no trees there was no fruit, the Lorax had to send the Bar-ba-loots away to live someplace else so they wouldn't have to starve. The Once-ler's business grew as well has his factory did, with the improved factory came waste, the waste had to be put somewhere other than the factory, so with a "Slopty-Schlop" all the waste was dumped into the lake. The Lorax noticed the wrongs of this and send the Humming-fish away. Lastly the factory's smog had been polluting the air, preventing the Swomee-swans from singing. The Lorax had no other choice but to send them off to live somewhere else. To prevent all of these unfortunate events, all the Once-ler had to do was plant truffula seeds instead of hacking all the trees down at once. If the Once-ler had listened to the Lorax things would be much cleaner and less polluted.
