The continuing climate change that is being felt around the world is due to the deterioration of our environment. These effects are brought about by human activities that caused air pollution and water degradation that caused the damage to the ozone layer and the building of toxic and radioactive waste through accumulation of garbage. All these activities have altered the quality of the environment. The destruction of the environment will generate imbalances in fauna and flora that will also affect the health and life of our community. It is the duty of all members of society to ensure that they take part in keeping the environment greener and cleaner. Choosing and standing by the conviction of helping the environment will mean that we take full responsibility for the welfare of the entire community.
One of the simple ways to care for the environment is by proper garbage disposal. For instance, the simple act of picking up a piece of thrash on the street and putting it in the garbage basket will keep out environment clean. In every household, every family should learn how to segregate their garbage by choosing the recyclable materials to save energy and resources. Recycling will reduce the garbage and lessen the toxic wastes that may harm the environment. Each one of us must be able to deeply understand the global effects of his or her actions. By having a sense of corporate social responsibility will diminish the negative impact being done to our planet. It is an intergenerational responsibility to create a healthier environment for the future generations. The best way solution to help save the environment from global warming is to make the energy more efficient in the home, office and school.
Choosing the use of recyclable materials will lessen the burning of fossil fuels, such as gas, coal, and oil will release gases that will destroy the atmosphere such as carbon dioxide. When these gases accumulate in the atmosphere there will be a buildup of the greenhouse effect. This is the moment that the sun releases heat which bounces to the earth, but due to the greenhouse effect, carbon dioxide blocks the way to release the heat to the space. The harmful effect on planet earth is that its temperature has slowly increased and this is known as global warming. To be able to reduce the effects of global warming, we must choose the products that we buy in order to control the garbage. It will be helpful to buy the loose products to lessen the number of packages that are being thrown in the garbage. This can be done by buying the local products in our community because it will also serve the purpose of helping economy. It will also ensure the minimized energy consumption that will be used for transportation. Energy consumption in each household will also help to save on electricity use and the cost. By using double glass doors and windows will decrease heat loss and thus, lower energy consumption. At the same time, reducing the thermostat heater will also save energy. Minimizing the use of electricity at home can be done by installing energy saving light bulbs, since these bulbs use about only 20 percent of electricity, which means 80 percent of energy is conserved. The energy consumption can also be done by the simple act of unplugging all the appliances that are not being used.
Aside from electricity consumption is reducing the water consumption. Each household should check for any hidden water leaks in their homes. Water conservation can be done by taking shorter showers. It is also helpful for the environment by lessening the use of the dishwasher and washing machine. These simple and easy tasks can be done if each person knows how to save water to cut on the costs and help in protecting the environment.
The consumers can also help save on the use of paper by opting online statements when paying their utility bills. By going paperless means reduction on the accumulation of paper bills and ensuring a cleaner and greener environment. Planting trees will also help reduce the effect of global warming and help in the production of oxygen. It is also beneficial for the environment if people choose their means of transportation. The use of minimum fuel can be done by lessening the use of cars, which means lesser air pollution. The use of public transportation will also help reduce air pollution and avoid traffic congestion. As part the mission to help save the environment is to live a healthy lifestyle. This can be done by changing the means of transportation to biking. Biking will help people be fit and live healthy lifestyles, and at the same time a fun activity to enjoy. Each one of us can do our part by the mere act of walking and not taking any means of transportation to get to our destinations.
Keeping an active lifestyle shall promote the importance of the ecosystem. By preserving our forests shall guarantee that carbon dioxide is removed, and for use to be able to breathe only clean and fresh air. By conserving water and land-based ecosystems shall be able to promote the natural resources and natural services that shall be beneficial for the entire community. Choosing the places we go to for vacation will also help maintain a sustainable environment. The act of choosing grocery products that are organic will lessen the use of pesticides or insecticides that may cause detrimental effects to the ozone layer.
Another way to save the planet is by building a partnership between business organizations and multi-million companies to support the common interest of protecting the environment, promoting human health, and improving the economic status of the local community. Thus, private companies and business organizations have a crucial role in product development and production technologies for the purpose of reducing the amount of waste generated by their goods and products. Hence, these goods and products must be designed in such a way that they do not cause harm to the environment throughout their life cycle.
Finally, it should be joint effort between the people and the government to ensure that new environmental policies shall be proposed to develop a more integrated approach in order to contribute to a better quality of life for all. Social well-being of citizens can be achieved by providing an environment where pollution levels do not generate harmful effects on human health and the environment. The best way to protect the natural environment natural is to promote sustainable economic development, which can start in the home. The contributors to the depletion of the ozone layer can be attributed to economic, social and human activities that occur in the natural environment. By deciding to take action to save the planet means that you are standing your conviction of helping the environment. This only shows that that we take full responsibility for the welfare of the entire community.
