3. Do a little gardening: Those who grow their own food can become more sustainable, and will be less likely to waste the food for which they worked so hard. In addition, gardening is good for your overall health and well-being. You know what you are eating, as you grew it yourself, so you won’t have to worry about ingesting harmful pesticides and toxins. Parts of the herbs, fruits or vegetables that aren’t used can go right back into your garden as compost to complete the circle.
4. Get busy recycling: The more you recycle, the less will end up in dumps and landfills. Set up a recycling bin/bag in your home and talk to your family about recycling. Do the same at your office. Recycling is one of those simple actions anyone can do with very little effort. In addition to recycling, you should work on reducing your overall consumption, reusing those materials and goods that can be used again, and upcycling items which no longer have a use in their current form into new, usable items. You might as well get the most out of your purchases.
5. Stay in touch with nature: Take the time each day to get out and about, so you stay closely connected with nature. The better you understand its value, the more respect you will have and the more you will do to protect the environment. Even if it’s just for a few minutes a day, go for a walk, take a bike ride, go on a hike or just sit outside and look around. When you look closely, you’ll be amazed at nature and its capabilities.
Don’t forget to lower your emissions by opting for eco-friendly forms of transportation, ride-sharing, and using a proven liquid fuel catalyst to improve engine power, increase fuel economy and reduce air pollution.
Now, while these actions will not necessarily change the world in a day, each can make quite a difference. When we work together as a whole, the people of the world can accomplish quite a bit. Start now and be the change you want to see.
