Reduce Your Environmental Footprint
There are many projects we can do to reduce our environmental footprint and help in the rehabilitation of the earth. Here are some tips you can easily do everyday to care for our environment.
Reduce – Conserving our natural resources can be done everyday. If we don’t start conserving our resources soon, we may face greater problems in the future.
- Electricity. You can conserve electricity by turning off appliances and lights that are not in use.
- Water. Shorten the length of your showers and turn it off while soaping. Turn off the sink faucet while lathering your hands or brushing your teeth.
Reuse – Before throwing away items, think of the other things you can do with your things. Make sure that something really has no use for you anymore before you decide to throw them away. Packages, plastic containers, bottles and boxes can be cleaned and used to store things that you don’t use all the time.
Recycle – The easiest thing to recycle is paper. Before discarding a paper, make sure that you’ve used both sides of it.
Reducing your environmental footprints will help alleviate the problem global warming. Remember that change starts from small acts. The small acts you do today can have big effects tomorrow.
