Global warming has become a global warning. And while we all know about the importance of planting trees and avoiding the use of plastic, is that all there is to protecting the environment? Is that all we can do to save the planet?
Everyone has a role to play when it comes to acting responsibly toward the Earth. You don’t have to do something big to make a difference; you can start small.
Here are a few activities you can try that will uplift your spirit and help you make a positive change!
Invest in a Rain Harvesting System
If you have a backyard, investing in a rain harvesting system will go a long way in preserving water.
The system will automatically collect water whenever it rains. You can then use that water throughout the year.
Gardening is a great way to make a positive change in your life and environment. You can start by planting a few flowers, fruits, or vegetables.
Remember to start small. You don’t want to overwhelm yourself, especially if you’ve got a busy and hectic schedule. Starting small will help you keep yourself organized.
You can use a journal for this purpose. List down the types of flowers and plants you’ve planted in your garden. You can even make a list of flowers, fruits and vegetables that you will plant in the future.
Shop at the Farmers Market
Instead of shopping at grocery stores that sell canned foods and products laden with GMOs, it’s best to shop at the local Farmers Market. This is because you’ll find organic foods there.
Organic foods aren’t laden with harmful pesticides and aren’t genetically modified. You can jot down a list of products you need to buy in your journal every time you visit the Farmers Market.
This way, you’ll also be able to keep track of the products and foods you’re buying.
