Global warming and climate irregularities, such as drought, storms, hailstorms and other phenomena are becoming more and more common these days. Natural disasters have attracted global attention telling us that it is imperative to go green for the environment. Here are 3 great ways we can do our part in helping to save our earth.
Yes, the best thing we can do for the environment is to reduce energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions. Sounds hard to do, right? Well, it’s actually not – consider taking the bus or carpooling on certain days, use the air conditioning at home less and switch from fluorescent tubes to LED lighting. Simple as that!
Everyday chemicals such as pesticides, insecticides, detergents and fertilisers all can cause pollution to our water sources and soil. These chemical residues, such as mercury, cadmium, lead and cyanide not only cause harm to the human body, but also cause ecological damage. Help reduce this from happening, by making the switch to organic and environmentally friendly products.
Landfills are packed with accumulated garbage, which could take up to a hundred years to decompose or even not at all! The only way we can help to try and put a stop to this is to sort through our waste into categories such as plastic, aluminium cans, paper and recycle where appropriate.
