The responsibility to save Planet Earth should not be only proclaimed outside houses. But also in seminars, awareness campaigns or environment-related forums. As little drops make the mighty ocean, little efforts propel big revolutionary changes in the world.
If we fight Climate Change in our homes, it will have a very positive impact on the environment.
We owe this to our Mother Planet. We can save Planet Earth at home by following ways:
Three R’s Strategy: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle
One of the most effective ways to fight environmental pollution is to reduce the usage of non-biodegradable materials, reuse the non-compostable items and recycle items that can be used over and over again.
Non-Renewable vs. Renewable Energy
In most countries, electricity is produced by burning fossil fuels. Fossil fuels are non-renewable energy resources. Fossil fuels add greenhouse gases to the environment. Solar and wind power can be used to generate electricity for houses in sunny and windy regions. Thus, we may save Earth at home by shifting to renewable energy.
Preference for Sustainable Products
There are kitchen appliances such as oven, light bulbs, solar chargers and other energy-efficient appliances that save energy and use less electricity. We may also save electricity by replacing traditional light bulbs LEDs. Thus, the use of sustainable products can reduce our electricity bills and carbon footprint.
Gardens at Home and Effective Waste Management
Effective waste management will reduce our impact on the environment tremendously. We may raise a hanging roof-garden, backyard-garden or balcony garden in the house. Grow the vegetables we eat and compost the waste created during cutting and cooking. The compost can be used for growing vegetables. Thus it will not only benefit the environment again. But will cut down our monthly expenses as well. Only little efforts are needed.
Effective Use of Water
Effective use of water saves you a great amount of money on your bills. Taking shorter showers, rinsing vegetables in bowls. Low-flow toilets and fixing leaks are effective methods of using water.
One should try to grow a tree for himself. Trees provide oxygen and food that combats environmental problems very efficiently.
Saving the environment is advantageous for us too. Because these efforts do not only benefit the environment but cut down our expenses. Thus, our carbon footprint is effectively reduced.
