    method

    Is the phrasing natural English?

    Method
    1. To make the questionnaires about the disposable chopsticks for people around me
    2. To arrange the information from people
    3. To search the information of disposable chopsticks on the Internet, newspaper, and magazines,such as Google, Yahoo, Apple Daily
    4. To ask science teachers about the chemical inside disposable chopsticks, like hydrogen peroxide solution (H2O2), sulfur dioxide (SO2)

    Re: method

    I don't know what you are trying to say with either 1 or 2. For 3, try:

    To search for information about disposable chopsticks on the Internet, in newspaper and magazines, etc.

    For 4, try:


    to ask science teachers about the chemicals inside disposable chopsticks.....

    You can be a lot shorter:
    1. Conduct a survey on the use of disposable chopsticks
    2. Analyze survey results
    3. Research disposable chopsticks in various media.
    4. Interview scientists on chemicals in disposable chopsticks.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
