Reducing the amount of household energy we use will mean we use less fossil fuels. This means that we will conserve the earth’s natural resources. Fossil fuels include different forms of energy resources such as petroleum, coal and natural gases. By doing something as simple as turning off lights when you are not in a room will use less power.
Recycling is so important. Everything we recycle reduces that amount of waste that ends up in landfill which reduces that amount of toxic waste that goes into the environment. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle as much as you can to help preserve the earth’s natural resources and reduce the human carbon footprint.
Planting trees is a great way to help the environment. They ensure we have clean air to breath by absorbing some of the carbon dioxide in the air. They also clean the air by breaking down a lot of air pollutants. Trees are also great for providing shade, remove nasty chemicals from the soil and can be a home for many different types of wildlife.
Walking not only is great for your health but is also great for the environment. Walking more will help reduce the amount of cars on the road. Less cars on the road means less greenhouse gases being released into the atmosphere. Walking is also a great way to get out in your community and get some fresh air.
There are so many other ways we can be sustainable, but starting off simple is a great way to have a go and not get too overwhelmed. Living sustainably is important for our future and we all need to be aware of the resources we are using to do everyday things and making small changes at home can help make a difference.
