Mother Earth has treated us well. With all of her dedication and generosity, human beings have been provided with everything we need for tens of thousands of years.
Saving the planet may sound like a huge undertaking but if we all do our bit, we can make some major progress. By making small changes and taking some simple eco-friendly actions, everyone can contribute to saving the planet.
Here are 7 simple things we can do right away to help save Mother Earth!
Conserve Energy and Natural Resources
The first thing that we should all keep in mind is that natural resources are limited. Due to our wasteful over-usage of paper, electricity, and fossil fuels, we are running out of coal, oil, wood, and clean water.
Despite this, big manufacturers are working day and night to meet our voracious appetite for energy, which has resulted not only in depleted resources but also in serious air pollution and water contamination on a global scale.
To stop this situation from worsening further, it is so important to be mindful of how we use energy. Start with these small things:
- Turn off all lights when you are not in the room
- Unplug all electronics when they’re not in use
- Opt for a quick shower rather than a bath
- Fix your leaky water taps
- Use energy-efficient light bulbs
- Switch to e-books to reduce paper use
- Use laptops with extended battery life instead of computers, etc.
Shifting to renewable resources suppliers is also a great alternative to fossil fuel-based energy. Using a biomass boiler or a solar heating system in your home is a great start.
Use Eco-Friendly Products
One of the biggest problems facing Mother Earth is the amount of polyurethane polluting the oceans. This comes from all the plastic products that we throw away and that find their way into the ocean.
