You might be familiar with the upcoming generation’s consideration of the planet. It can look like drinking from a reusable water bottle, walking to places, and of course, replacing plastic straws and using metal and paper straws. Though you may think of this simply as a trend that may be a memory in a few months, what this ‘trend’ is doing is a lot nicer than what you would think for our planet.
How To Be More Ecologically Conscious
Impending doom is expected that scientists have time and again reminded us of. Climate Crisis, the melting ice caps, forced endangering of wildlife because of human endeavors are all the repercussions we will face in the coming years. It has been proven countless times that we are now neglecting the planet. If we were to pay a little more mind to our everyday actions, we could have a remarkable shift in the course of action leading up to irreversible climate change
Taking public transport
Taking your car might sound more convenient, but it is highly disastrous for the planet. The excess fumes from the car’s exhaust pipe not only pollute the planet’s air but contributes to excess noise and light pollution as well. Choose public transport.
Ditching single-use plastics
It is reported that about 300 million tonnes of plastic are dumped into the ocean every year. Most of the plastic is also not recyclable and so using it only damages the planet.
In the age of social media, no matter is too small for discussion if raised correctly. Speak, listen and talk about why the health of the earth matters. Speak out against companies that cannot or do not want to control their carbon footprints. If we all do our part, we can make a huge difference in the world.
In the simplest of ways, we can counter the climate crises, and in doing so, we can secure the world not only for us but also for the upcoming generations.
