Humans get old, so does the earth. There are a lot of factors that contribute to the pollution of the environment. Air pollution from open burning, sound pollution from construction sites, water pollution from trash, land pollution from overuse of pesticides on plants and a lot more.
There are always methods or precautions that we can take and do in order to take care of the environment. By taking care of the environment, we are actually taking care of ourselves as almost everything that we consume is from the natural resources around us.
Here are few things that we can do to improve the quality of our environment;
Avoid open burning
Open burning will not only bring harm to our ozone layer but is also harmful for us humans. The tiny particles of the ashes might get into our nose and into your lungs which will bring harm to some people especially the babies. Bring the garbage to the garbage disposal centre to dispose our trash in a proper way.
Practice 3R – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
3R is a thing that we should start implementing to our kids from a young age. Not only will it save the environment but practicing 3R will also save your money from buying things repetitively while you can just reuse what you already have.
Reduce means to reduce the amount of things you buy. For example, reduce the usage of plastic bottles by refilling water into one specific water bottle that we already have.
Reuse is reusing anything that cannot be recycled such as plastic bags. If we don’t want to buy new grocery bags, reuse the plastic bags that we already have.
Recycle means recycling anything that is from paper, aluminium, glass and any other things that can be recycled. Send these things to the recycle centre so we don’t have to throw it at the garbage disposal centre.
Make sure the beach is always clean
“Do not litter!”
If you have been to a beach, you will see a lot of these signs. This is because your litter might be harmful to the sea creatures. There are cases where turtles choked on plastics because they thought it was their food. Littering might lead to the dropping number of sea creatures.
Not only that, companies that are responsible for doing floating hose inspection in Malaysia should check regularly to avoid sea pollution from happening. Sea is one of our sources of food, so we don’t want our food to be bad.
Reduce water usage
Water is one of the sources that we always take for granted because we can see that there are a lot of water resources around us. But, saving water must be in our top priorities too. We can use rainwater to wash our cars, close the tap while brushing our teeth and also make sure that our washing machines are full before starting washing.
That action will not only reduce your water usage but also the electricity, detergents and softeners used. It saves a lot of your money.
Taking care of the environment because that is our responsibility. We live in this world, we use the sources and we will be the one to face any disaster caused by our own negligence.
