There is no denying the fact that technology advancements and developments have contributed significantly to enhancing and empowering the human life. Better connectivity, larger than life infrastructures, oceans of opportunities, accessibility and many other factors have completely undergone their definition with the leap revolution has brought. Even though the grass looks really green and in many ways it really is, the fact remains that these developments have brought their share of troubles and problems and have significantly added to an imbalance in the well-being of mother nature. Depletion of energy resources, increasing pollution, poisonous gases and this insane fluctuation in the climatic conditions all over the world have early cerated a cause of concern for one and all who reside on this planet. All these destructions are screaming out to analyze the need of the hour and add measures that can save our environment and give our coming generations clean air to breathe and clean water to drink. Let’s have a look at some factors that can contribute largely to saving the environment.
– Plant more trees– there is nothing new in the fact that the greenhouses gases have not just poisoned the air but have also caused the depletion of the ozone layer which has resulted in the rise of temperature in almost all parts of the world. By planting more trees, we are not only implanting permanent means to purify the air around us but also significantly controlling the greenhouse gases’ impact on the environment. The more the trees the better the balance in climatic changes.
– Avoid the use of plastics– with so much being said and done against plastics, there is little that can be said about its many disadvantages. For one plastic is non-biodegradable which means that it is never getting decomposed with the earth, secondly, plastics are one of the biggest reasons behind creating pollution and can be fatal for all their surroundings. In several places, plastic bottles and polythene bags are swallowed by the animals which can cause severe effects and can even lead to their death. Another very big disadvantage of plastics is that on burning they release an expectedly toxic gas which is very harmful to all living creatures. The best substitute against plastic is the use of paper bags, steel bottles etc.
– Use collective means of communicating – these days it has but become a trend for each person to have a person vehicle on themselves, it increases their convenience factors for sure but what people fail to understand is that more the number of vehicles on the roads, the more the traffic is going to be, and this increase in traffic is only going to result in accelerated pollution, which is very harmful to the environment. The best measures that can be adopted to avoid this is by using public transport, using bicycles or chasing to use carpool.
– Save natural resources – it is very important to understand that natural resources like coal and petroleum are limited and endangered. Believe it or not, the consumption of these commodities is on such an extreme that humans have already exhausted a handful amount of them, it is very important that the wise and judicious use of these commodities is done to make it highly beneficial for us in the long run. This can be achieved by making the most of the unlimited sources of energy and do our best to control the wastage and unnecessary use of these sources.
We have reached a point where it has become essential to believe in the power of change at a personal level and to adopt the right measures that can significantly contribute to keeping our environment safe, clean and most importantly pollution-free.
