The environment needs serious care. With the increase in pollution and misuse of natural resources, there are so many deadly “end of age” stuff that we see happening in front of our eyes that it is unbelievable! The damage that nature is facing is unacceptable and it is essential that we protect our environment with all that we can, giving back what we snatched and most importantly – bringing the green back.
Each of us can try to be waste-free and individually help a global movement of restoring the environment. It is important and every little thing that we can do towards it matters. It is as easy as applying what we learnt in school – reuse, reduce and recycle.
Here are 5 small steps that each of us can individually ensure as we hope to build a better future for the environment and in turn, us –
- Reusable water bottles
Reusable water bottles can help the environment so so much! Everyday there are millions of plastic water bottles that get thrown out into landfills, waterways, etc. as waste and contribute majorly towards the increase in pollution. Using reusable water bottles can reduce this pollution by such a great margin. So, get a reusable water bottle and use the same one for your water. Wash it occasionally, so that bacteria does not build up.
- Reusable bags
Again, with the plastic. A lot of regions have banned plastic bags because of the increasing pollution they cause. Most stores have moved to paper bags, but then again, if every one of us use reusable cloth bags like jute bags, we will be helping the environment so much! We will save money too!
- Reusable food containers
Try reusing food containers like peanut butter bottles, jam bottles, other plastic bottles to store your food and snacks. This way you will not have to think of the garbage that you will have to get rid of and you will be a step closer to living a waste-free life.
- Get to-go cups
There are a lot of coffee shops that sell to-go cups which you can use every time you need coffee! Now, you don’t need to keep buying coffee cups which go waste after you’ve had your coffee and in turn, you help the environment. Also, as a plus, these coffee shops give a discount on your coffee if you use these to-go cups.
Ready to start living the waste-free life and give better future to next generation?
