Are you looking for ways to protect the environment? Do the various ways available confuse you on how to look after the environment? Well, if you are a person who loves the greens, it’s time you look ahead!
Our environment is important to us as much as food and water. But for the past few years, people have been very less concerned about the environment.
And that has led people to take drastic steps regarding the drainage system as well, which leads to maximum dirt in the environment. One such great way to save the environment is by making concrete stormwater pits that massively help waste management!
Now that you know how important it is to save the environment and how one must save the environment from being dirty, let’s check 5 super simple ways to ensure this! Read on to know more.
What does the environment include!
Our environment consists of our nature and everything that surrounds us. It includes all living and nonliving creatures, which are water, plants, soil, animals’ humans, etc. Thus, we need to save our environment in order to survive.
Here are 5 easy ways one can follow in order to save our environment!
1. REDUCE, RECYCLE AND REUSE
Reduce means to reduce the amount of wastage in our daily life. Reducing consumption and buying unnecessary items can help in reducing. Buying goods in bulk can reduce plastic waste.
One can also try to avoid buying goods sold in plastic in order to reduce plastic waste. Also, consuming less electricity and using electricity wisely can help in reducing.
Recycling means extracting valuable materials from products that are already used so that they can be put to use later. Trash Cans can be spotted in every corner of a city; one can throw already used and waste plastic products in order to support recycling.
Reusing means reusing the old products which still can be used rather than throwing them away. For example, using jars to store spices, surf, etc., to reduce buying of goods. Old clothes can be reused for different purposes or can be donated to the poor as well.
2. TO CONSERVE WATER
Water is a limited resource. Out of 70% of the water that is available, only 0.03% is made up of fresh water. With the increasing population, it is very necessary to conserve water; otherwise, our future generations will have to face it.
Water is very important for us to survive because it grows fruits and vegetables. Water shortages have become a common problem now. Water conservation policies made by the respective governments should be followed. Saving water is just not for human beings but for the other species, living organisms, to survive.
TO PLANT A TREE
Trees help in reducing global warming by absorbing carbon dioxide. Trees also help in reducing soil erosion and preventing flooding. Trees also help lessen air pollution and improve air quality by trapping dust and other pollutants.
Planting trees is further important because they are the home to many birds and animals. Trees also give oxygen which helps human beings to survive. Trees also provide food to human beings and many other living organisms.
Using less electricity can reduce global warming. Burning fossil fuels used to produce electricity also contributes to global warming.
Conserving electricity means using electricity only when it is necessary in order to avoid wasting electricity.
Saving energy will help protect plants and animals from getting destroyed as well. Using CFL and LED bulbs in our households can reduce energy use by 25-35%.
USING TRANSPORT WISELY
One can use transport wisely and help reduce greenhouse gases. One can also take a walk when visiting local places and avoid using cars or bikes. Using public transport will also help since the lesser the pollution in the air and reduce greenhouse gases. One can also do carpool to save the environment from getting polluted.
Saving our environment is necessary since not only the present generation needs to survive but also for future generations to survive. Steps taken today, either bad or goodwill, affect the generations to come.
One also should educate their child about these so that they start following them from childhood. Our environment needs to be saved. So, go ahead and incorporate these and see remarkable changes in the environment.
