Recycling saves the environment for future generations. But, do you have the time to recycle in your busy schedule? If recycling is the last thing in your mind and your schedule, you are not alone. Millennials all over the world are more conscious of the environment than the older generation. Surprisingly, millennials do a lot less than the older generation as the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries observes.
You are probably wondering why the water you drink and the oxygen you breathe are not depleting? You have been breathing the same air since conception. Well, we’ve got mother nature to thank for this. Nature was designed to conserve many of the materials we need for existence. What a fantastic gift, right? You’re probably not aware of the fact that recycling is what keeps the earth spinning, no pun intended.
Lifestyle, poor waste disposal, and pitiable agricultural practices are among some of the social practices that directly affect the environment. You need not demonstrate in the streets as a way of showing solidarity to environmental conservationists. Look at some of the things you have at home and evaluate their effect on the environment.
Large amounts of waste end up in oceans worldwide annually. They create trash islands as large as cities. Most of the trash comprises of plastic that takes centuries to decompose. Despite being convenient, disposable water bottles take up so much space in landfills, atop polluting the oceans. They also require lots of resources to produce.
An eco–friendly lifestyle doesn’t affect the environment negatively. It involves taking small steps and actions to save Mother Earth for local communities and the future generation. Ranging from walking more and driving less to buy recycled products, there’re many ways to save the environment. Even small steps such as preventing water leakage in an effort to conserve water can help save the environment from pollution and depletion of scarce natural resources.
Are you passionate about the environment? What do you do to conserve it? Do you know right in your kitchen garden you can positively impact on environmental conservation using reusable materials? Instead of using timber- felling a tree- why not improvise other building materials and add aesthetic value to your garden? Save that tree to maintain the ecological balance to prevent climate change.
