There is no doubt that the planet is sick and suffering. We are all acutely aware of what is happening around us. Yet chronic apathy that has taken a hold of us and prevented us from doing what we can in at least our own small way to make a positive impact upon the plight of nature. There is no resource that is infinite starting from the air we breathe to just about anything. How renewable a resource could be is purely based on how we use it as well. We did not imagine a few decades back that air pollution in some cities would be so bad that people would have to wear masks, or that water wastage would run so high that we deplete our consumable water amount. More and more plant and animal species are going out of existence this very minute and not many people are aware that may be one of these days that species could actually be us. This is why it is important to get rid of the attitude that thinks along the lines of why you alone should do something. Instead think of what you alone can do to make that small difference.
Do Not Misuse Unsustainable Resources
Do you make sure that the lights, fans and the air conditioning are all switched off whenever nobody is using them? How many times do you leave them running? Maybe you just keep the shower running too while you are brushing your teeth? All these are perfect examples of how we can unintentionally and careless waste non-renewable resources that are pretty scarce. One of the things that you could do to give back to nature would definitely be to cut down on the consumption of energy in your home. One way would be to invest in solar energy Sydney and cut down on all that electricity that you are paying for right now. Not only will it help the planet, it also helps your wallet.
Live By the 4Rs
The long-standing established rule for giving back to the planet is to live by the 4Rs. They are refuse, reduce, reuse and recycle. Most of the time, if you get to your garage or your kitchen now, you will be able to see just how many non-biodegradable materials are present. By recycling what you can in the right way and by refusing to use or at least reducing the use of materials that will not decompose naturally without polluting the planet, you are already making a significant change in the world’s ecosystems.
Preserve Water As Much As Possible
Water is not as unlimited as you think or feel. Just because our planet is covered majorly in water, that does not mean that all of it is usable readily. We are seeing signs of water depleting and people going through periods of long droughts and famine thanks to the exploitation of this resource. Because you have water available readily as soon as you open your taps that does not mean that it will be the same five years from now.
