With bad news about global warming, dying oceans, and endangered animals flooding us on a daily basis, are you concerned about the welfare of the Earth? Human beings are part of the natural world and we have evolved to be part of nature, not apart from it.
Sooner or later, we will have to recognise that the Earth has rights, too, to live without pollution. What mankind must know is that human beings cannot live without Mother Earth, but the planet can live without humans.
This world is ours and we live here. All other creatures also live here but we’re the only ones capable of thinking. We must do something to protect our home, our only home. It’s our responsibility to restore healthy interactions with Earth’s system. Would you do anything that you can to save it?
Have you ever imagined what will happen if pollution is not stopped? The air will become harder to breathe, the water will become undrinkable, and the food pyramid will collapse due to animal extinction. It may seem like it's hard to know where to start, but there are actually many ways you can help. Given below are some suggestions that you can do to save the Earth.
1. Pay attention to the PROPER USAGE OF WATER.
Conserve water at home by taking measures to use less water as possible. Simple acts like turning off the water while brushing your teeth and fixing leaky faucet can make a big difference. Don’t wash dishes with the water running continuously and replace old toilets with a new one that uses a lot less water. Wasting water is one of the scenarios that can severely harm our planet.
2. Make your home ENERGY EFFICIENT AND ECO-FRIENDLY.
Did you know that coal and natural gas are the most common sources of energy that get turned into electricity? The burning of these substances is a major factor in world air pollution, and breathing clean air is our primary source of survival. Turn off unneeded lights and unplug appliances when you’re not using it. Reducing your reliance on electricity is a great way to play a part in saving the planet, it only takes a second to be environmentally conscious.
3. USE FEWER CHEMICALS and disposing of it in the right way.
Most people use heavy-duty chemicals for all sorts of things, thus, leaving real damage to waterways and aquatic life. Look for natural ways to get rid of weeds and pests instead of using pesticides and herbicides. Paint, motor oil, and a host of other chemicals should not be poured down the drain because it will eventually end up in the water supply. Hazardous waste and toxic chemicals aren’t good for humans and nature.
4. Drive less and WALK MORE AS POSSIBLE.
Walking or riding your bike to work, school, and a grocery store can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Every car on the road is a big source of air pollution that has led to global warming. By doing this, you are not only saving the planet, but you are also making yourself healthier by having some exercise.
5. RECYCLE THINGS and learn proper COMPOSTING.
Everything you throw in the trash bin is going to end up in a landfill, which makes a great contribution to soil pollution. Avoid disposable products and patronized reusable items. You can reduce the amount of solid waste by putting that soda can in a different bin. Unleash your creative side and try to transform garbage into something useful. You can make rich fertilizer by composting food scraps in a bin or a pile. Instead of throwing what you don’t eat, make the land much healthier and more vibrant each time you compost it.
6. DONATE OLD THINGS rather than throwing them away.
A one man’s trash can be another man’s treasure, so be mindful of what you throw in the trash. Channel your inner goodness and don’t dump things just because you’re sick of them. Donate your used clothing and furniture for a charity shop or list them on a free collection site online. Try to see how many times things can be repurposed rather than simply thrown away. You’re not only helping those people who have nothing, but you are also saving our planet from waste pollution.
7. STOP CUTTING TREES and let them live.
Trees are an integral part of the ecosystem because it protects the land from getting eroded. By planting trees, you’ll be protecting not only land, but water, air, and animals, too. Try to be welcoming to animals by putting out a bird feeder and bird bath stocked with clean food and water. If you have space in your yard, consider planting trees or flowers that make your property a haven for wildlife.
8. GIVE RESPECT TO ANIMALS and don’t kill them.
With dozens of animal species going extinct in every passing day, they need all the help they can get. They may cause a little inconvenience in your garden, but please understand that having these animals around is a sign your ecosystem is in good health. Don’t destroy the forests, beaches, wetlands, and other areas where animals make their homes. Save lives by protecting their natural habitat.
9. GET INVOLVED and encourage one another.
If you can’t give financial aid, at least give some of your time to worthy causes. Join a local environmental group that clean up beaches or riverbanks. Volunteer to help clean up the water in your area, whether it’s a river, lake, or ocean. There are people out there fighting for the planet and its animal, help them out!
Teach young people the importance of treating our environment with care, and if each of them takes on board just one point, the effect could be immense. Children learn from those around them, so make them part of the rescue efforts. The planet needs immediate help and we can all choose to be conscious global citizens.
Stop the practices that past generations have put in place and make this world that future generations will be able to live in, too. And even if you don’t care about the people around you, at least make an effort for the animals. These poor animals don’t deserve to go extinct because of our poor choices and lack of caring.
Everything on this planet is in natural systems or cycles, aiming to maintain some sort of equilibrium. Nature is extremely good at regulating the environment and everything evolved together over time in co-dependency, including us. It is always wise to protect our home and preserve even the smallest things present in nature so that they will exist for all the upcoming future generations to see.
Thank you for reading and have a great day.
