2018 is ending and we’re still all facing the same problem in our environment. The never-ending pollution caused by lack of discipline is the number one problem that we cannot solve. Every year, tons and tons of waste are being produced by humans, most of it is plastic that will take a very long time to decay.
Luckily, there are still simple ways that we can do to make a change and help our mother earth to regain and preserve its nature. Here are some of the easy ways that you can do to help on our battle against pollution.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
I know many of you are familiar with this phase but let’s admit it, we know it since we were kids but we actually don’t do it all the time. Reusing and recycling material means turning trash into something useful, it’s like repurposing a certain object so it won’t be useless anymore.
Reusing and recycling have a huge effect on our environment especially if everyone will do it. But unfortunately, not everyone can understand its importance.
Pick up Trash
Picking up small trash and throwing it into the proper trash bin is the simplest way to save our environment. Keeping a candy wrapper in your bag or pocket instead of throwing it on the street is a huge step to help the environment. Small things can mean a lot especially if you’ll do it every day for the rest of your life.
Use Eco-friendly Products
Reusable stainless straws, eco-bags, bamboo toothbrush, and many more. Thanks to social media, people are now getting aware of how important our environment is. People are now buying eco-friendly stuff to somehow help to reduce plastics.
I just hope that people will really use them to help our environment and not just to post it on social media.
Volunteering can give a person an extraordinary experience that will last for a lifetime. In this case, planting trees and picking up trashes on the shore may sound boring but it can be fun if you have a lot of company.
There are many foundations encouraging people to help them clean and save mother earth. They are often looking for individuals who can help them to clean nature. You can volunteer during your free time and encourage your friends too, bond with them while saving our environment. Now that’s a win-win situation.
Encourage Your Friends
Lastly, as a person who cares for the environment, make sure that you encourage and influence your friends to help save our environment. Teach them ways and make them realize that one person can make a difference but a group of people can save a planet.
Nature gives so many benefits to people and all it ever wanted is for us to take care of it. Is it that hard? This 2019, let’s start the change in ourselves and make people around us feel that they can also be the change we always wanted to be. Let’s love our nature and take care of it, let’s save it before it’s too late.
