7 Ways We Can Save the Planet from Further Destruction!

We celebrate World Environment Day on 5 June every year, to create awareness amongst the people. But is one day mindfulness enough to save the planet from the impending disaster? The answer is no. we humans have utilised the earth and its resources to the maximum, it is exhausted. The environment has been an unfortunate victim of our ruthless actions. And it continues. We have plundered wildlife, sabotaged marine life, cut down trees, polluted natural resources and are almost on the verge of fatiguing the non-renewable resources. So is one day enough to fix all this years of faults?

To answer this question, read the following article. It highlights seven ways in which can contribute to saving the planet.

Lack of usable water seems to be the biggest problem of all. Saving water is thus our foremost responsibility. Close the tap when brushing your teeth or shaving. Recycle water at home and install aeration nozzles on all taps. Do not use water until you absolutely need it.

Save electricity as that will save the use of coal and petroleum (which are non-renewable). Switch off the lights if you are not present in the room. Unplug chargers when not in use. Employ power-saving electronics devices that save energy.
Instead of using petrol and diesel cars, switch to public transportation or maybe just walk (it will keep you healthy as well!).
Don’t buy plastic products until absolutely necessary. Try to use jute bags when buying items from the market or some store. Stop the promotion of plastic bags and products. Opt for reusable containers.
Learn the art of recycling. Reuse paper and save trees (according to research, one ton of paper requires 17 trees to be cut down). Cardboard and paper recycling is currently promoted at large by the governments of several counties and other eco-friendly organisations.
Plant a tree in the backyard of your house or in your neighbourhood. Encourage your neighbours and your kids to take responsibility. One tree can save millions of lives.
When disposing off construction and demolition waste or electronic products, get in touch with professional cleaners who are experts in their job. They use eco-friendly methods to get rid of the waste accumulated. Also, they have access to the right tools for the job. The professionals also charge very nominal amount to provide the facilities, thus making them so popular.

The above mentioned points are very small in magnitude, but a little step is what we need. Earth is our home, so save it from getting ruptured beyond repair. Even taking these baby steps by millions of people individually can create a huge difference. Let us make World Environment Day every day.

Benefits of Waste Management Recycling is Felt Widely Today

Waste accumulation and management is one of the alarming problems rising in the society today. Though the environmentalists are laying stress on a lot of things which deal with this subject, but not everyone end up following them.  The pressing problems which underlie this situation can degrade the total ecosystem, and give way to a wide array of other dangerous consequences, including health related issues. Soil contamination and air pollution are few of the direct results of improper waste management, and releasing deadly gases, chemicals can pose serious threat to the world we are living in. Especially, they are very harmful for children, pregnant women, patients, and elders. Not to forget, burning the waste emits methane gas which depletes the ozone layer and contribute into the devastating effects of climate change and global warming.  Thus, experts are of the view that proper and sustainable waste management recycling is very necessary to undertake.

Recycling of waste is very important today, though few of you might not be clear about the benefits it offers. Here are some.

Skip the landfills

Landfill space is very scarce in the urban areas like big cities an metros,  and hence recycling the waste help to adjust everything in a single landfill area.  By recycling some of the waste, you send less to the landfills, and hence they won’t fill up first. This will help the officials to work with one or two landfills only.

Prevents depletion of resources

If you can recycle the wastes properly, you will save the earth from getting depleted of its resources. Use and reuse the waste materials which can be recycled and brought into some uses and functions. For instance, the papers in the waste dumped can be recycled to make notebooks, so that no more trees are cut, and you can save environmental degradation at a large.

Uses less energy

Recycling the waste materials to bring in new ones uses less energy than manufacturing same things from fresh new resources. Recycling is a very energy efficient procedure to being in new products to be used in our daily lives, instead of wasting more and degrading the ecosystem.

Lessens air pollution

Burning the waste often cause the emission of toxic methane and other gases which deplete the ozone layer causing air pollution and global warming which is alarming today.  Thus, creating some new by reusing the waste materials is definitely a better option to go for.

Damages soil and water supply

Letting the waste accumulate and rot at the landfills end up damaging the water supply by disturbing the complete eco system. Also, the soli gets depleted, and toxic material sweeps through the layers of lands, and causes dangerous soil degradation hazards.

Creates jobs

Domestic employment increases through the recycling companies who take part in offering proper waste management solutions.   The recycling industry is a pro in generating employments, and there are the people directly involved in the recycling process, and also some after the recycling process.

Thus, recycling of accumulated waste and giving way to organic waste is great to environment.
