Global warming has started and it is only a matter of time before it gets worse. It will destroy the planet in the short run. However, people can still change. In your own little ways, you could save the world. You only need to follow the 5 R word principle of environmental responsibility. They are easy to remember. You just have to refuse reduce reuse recycle.
It depends on the context but the goal is the same. You must not lay waste on the environment. If possible, slow things down. As said, rethink your actions. Never rush especially when you have a wrapper in your hand. If a garbage can is not around, you must put it in your bag and wait until you find a proper one.
This is usually difficult for those who have not been used to being patient but they should learn. They need to be educated. As for waste reduction, the idea is simple. Buy products that last for a long time. That way, you would not keep throwing every now and then. If possible, invest in expensive shirts, bags, and other items that you use on a daily basis.
This reduces rate of items that are being disposed every day. Also, if you have other things that you just bought, never throw them. Even paper bags, they can still be used for so many activities. It depends on how you use them but you should never throw them if they are still in good condition.
That could be a waste of money since you are also paying for them. If some of items at home get broken such as a chipped mug for instance, try to make use of those things. A chipped mug is still functional. You may use it to store your toothbrush or even your pens. Again, that always depends.
When you buy biscuits that are contained in tin cans, you must at least appreciate the fact that they have good containers. That way, you would surely be able to make use of them in a good way. For old people, they use these cans to store sewing materials. That is both wise and environmental.
It does not waste anything. Even the ribbons that come from cake boxes, they shall be reused. It would surely be a waste of your time and money if those materials are not given more use. Also, they contribute to the large amount of garbage that is ignored every day. So, everyone must know this.
In terms of technology, find a way to reduce metal waste. They also contribute negatively to nature. If possible, buy batteries that are rechargeable. This encourages you to buy the batteries once in a long period since it they can be recharged. Hence, nothing would be thrown on a regular basis.
Finally, reduce the use of plastic. This is probably the most important thing of all. Plastic is one strong reason why global warming is occurring. They also destroy the health of many animals. Therefore, those who did not have any idea must learn of it now. It is not too late to change your ways.
