30-day challenge ~ WRITINGRAINBOW(GREEN) day 16: how do you care for the environment?
I am the litter police. I may let my home get a little messy here and there but I never, ever dispose garbage in the streets. It really irks me to see trash in nature. If I’m with someone or if I see someone littering and they refuse to properly dispose it, I will go pick it up and throw it out myself. Not littering — especially in the ocean — is really the simplest way to show respect for the earth.
Being vegetarian helps the environment because livestock farming contributes more greenhouse gases, waste pollution, overgrazing, soil erosion, and deforestation.
Always unplug or turn off something after using it.
Limit hot water use.
I don’t drive much, walk instead if I can.
Use environmental-friendly cleaners, only use things like bleach when really necessary.
Environmental-friendly sunscreen before swimming in the ocean.
Try to reuse or donate old things rather than throw them away.
And lastly… tell the plants they’re pretty and I love them very much!!! Ha.
