Simple Things You Can Do to Heal the Environment

May 4, 2022

Over the years, the news has been flooded with issues like global warming, climate change, melting icebergs, stronger typhoons, and endangered and extinct animals - which are all shreds of evidence that something is not right with our planet. Research suggests that the planet’s situation will worsen in the future, but this is not inevitable. Saving the environment requires commitment and effort from the government, the private sector, and the community.

As an individual, you can also do your part in saving the environment through these simple things:

Manage your waste

A considerable percentage of the planet’s resources is wasted. Everything you buy or use has an environmental footprint that can contribute to pollution if not correctly disposed of. You can use your creativity and imagination in upcycling or recycling things. For example, you can use a jar as a coin bank or a candle holder. However, if you do not have the time to do this, you can hire a skip from a company that commits to recycling waste properly to reduce its impact on the environment.

It is also a big help in the environment (and your budget) if you avoid wasting food. You can start with simple steps like eating your leftovers, avoiding take-outs, and using the ingredients you already have to make another meal.

Travel responsibly

Transportation is one of the significant contributors to air pollution. Travelling responsibly can decrease your carbon footprint and lower your environmental impact. You can utilise public transportation or hitchhike with friends instead of your private car. Walking or bicycling is an excellent way to lessen air pollution.

Plant more trees

Modernisation and urbanisation lead to deforestation since people are so focused on building infrastructure and human settlement areas that they fail to consider the trees and the wildlife that depend on them. However, the benefits you can get from a tree are limitless. Trees significantly improve the quality of air, water, and soil of a place. They also provide food and habitats for animals, insects and humans, and to top it all, trees also serve as the natural barriers to the planet from natural disasters. So, whether you are living in the city or rural area, you can maximise your space and start your little garden or contact a local tree-planting group or organisation to get you started.

Be updated and informed

The more you know about environmental issues, the more you can help the environment. Read about recent studies and news like how urbanization has contributed to deforestation with about 5.6%, watch influential people, listen to podcasts, and surround yourself with people working to make the planet better. This way, you'll be aware of the latest trends that you can do to help heal the environment. You can also use this information to influence your friends, family, and colleagues to join you in living a more sustainable lifestyle.

Several human activities harm the planet and the wildlife that live on it. But, ironically, it is also the humans who hold the key to its healing. You can start by following these tips to live a sustainable and eco-friendly lifestyle.
