Be a Better Person: Be Eco-Friendly

Going green and being eco friendly
As you all know, global warming and high CO2 levels in the earth’s atmosphere are the two major problems that we face today. Everyone – from young children to adults – is encouraged to support Mother Nature by learning how to reduce, reuse and recycle. All living things in this earth are in big trouble if global warming, pollution and CO2 levels continue to worsen. After all, scientists are still quite sure that we cannot live on Mars or Venus, so the only home we human beings – and all living things in general – have is the one we’re currently in; Earth. So it is our job to do our part and help reverse the effects of global warming and pollution by doing little things like recycling, and encourage other people to do so too. This way, if everyone does their part, we can be assured that our children and their children will still be able to live in this world and see its beauty like we do. Here are some ways to be more eco-friendly:

• First of all, learn how to reduce, reuse and recycle everything from garbage to clothes. It might be easier said than done, so like all acquired habits, practice recycling and think about every action that you are about to do. Ask yourself questions like “Will it be good for the environment” or “Is this going to have a positive/negative impact on Mother Nature?” With practice and time, you’ll be able to do everything from cooking to gardening with going green in mind. Now that’s going to give ‘green thumb’ a new meaning.

• Do certain household chores the way your grandparents did them. For example, instead of using dryers to dry clothes, why not just let them line dry? If it’s especially sunny outside (take advantage of the summer months), then let your bed sheets and clothes dry the natural way. When you do this, you conserve a lot of energy that would otherwise be used to power a dryer.

• After taking advantage of the summer months, don’t forget about the rainy months. If you think that the downpour was a bit saddening then why not make something productive like rain barrels and put them around your house? This way you have something to look forward to when the rain stops. Just so you know, a rain barrel is basically something that collects rainwater. You can buy inflatable ones or just collect your old rain barrels and give them a new lease on life by painting them with fun bright colors.

• As out of the blue as this may seem, you should quit smoking if you are a smoker. Not only are you seriously endangering yourself, your family and everyone around you, but you’re also a contributor to polluted air found indoors as well as outdoors.

• Last but not least, learn how to conserve water whether you’re brushing your teeth or washing the dishes.

The most important of all these is to learn how to reduce, reuse and recycle. But if you do all these things, you’re well on your way to becoming a better, eco-friendly person.
