Taking care of our environment is something that every person should do. It isn’t hard and it doesn’t require a lot of time. People usually think that if they are doing things to save the environment, it wouldn’t make a difference, because there are more people who simply don’t care. But, every person is needed and he/she can make a difference, so start doing it.
This means you should live green. So, start changing your lifestyle. The first things you should do are to see what are you doing that is harmful to the environment. This often includes two things, power consumption and cars. Today, people use too much electricity, which means that power plants work much more. They create an awful lot of pollution, which can be reduced if you don’t use that amount of energy. Simple tips may help, like turn off your computer when you are not using it and turn off the lights when you aren’t in the room. The same thing is with your car. You can go to many places by foot or with your bicycle.
Other simple things you can do is to plant a tree. It is cheap, can be fun, can increase your property value and trees are known as ‘’lungs of the planet.’’ That nickname they got because they make the air cleaner! Even more important is your waste.
Almost every person uses plastic bags and plastic bottles, but they don’t dissolve easily in nature. This means that your plastic bag can ‘’wander’’ around the forest 1000 years! Even when they start dissolving, plastic releases harmful chemicals. You can prevent all these by using paper bags.
