In case you haven’t thought about
it, climate change can be pretty much scary. Yes, a lot of people do not fear
the caution right at this moment, and that is entirely understandable. Maybe
they still haven’t seen any Earth proven destruction that can alarm them at an
extreme level. Some of them may know a thing, but not until they witness it
with their eyes; the damage of climate change will remain as a thought. In case
there is a slight concern left, let’s find out how we can be proactive in
addressing the situation.
How To Help?
One way to help in addressing
climate change is driving less when we can. If the destination is not that
far and is close enough, might as well consider taking an alternative. There is
walking or riding a bike, which is both beneficial for our health, by the way.
If in case the location needs vehicle travel, instead of driving our car, we
can choose to carpool instead. It might be useful if we use public
transportation too. With this simple approach, we get to help reduce vehicle consumption
along with its carbon dioxide emission.
One known method that we need to
practice diligently is recycling
and reusing things when we can. Recycling can impact climate change a lot
because recycled products can help save production energy. It can include the
production of our food, plastics, cans, gadgets, furniture, etc. Yes, we
sometimes excuse ourselves from throwing away stuff because we do not need them
anymore. Occasionally, we get no chance of even using it again. But instead of
throwing it all out, we can always donate it to charity if the product is still
in good condition or give the recyclable materials to recycling companies.
Diet can also create a massive
contribution to addressing climate change. Yes, eating less meat is a plus
point. As the animal agriculture industry emits large portions of greenhouse
gases, frequent consumption of the meat will negatively sustain the emission.
No, eating less meat does not necessarily mean we have to go vegan or
vegetarian. Allowing a simple meat-less day or using a plant-based option meal
once in a while can help a little bit.
The most important thing to do in
helping to save the Earth is going through inspiring others. Providing people
the right information that helps boost their environmental awareness can create
a huge impact. Not only on it will cater to the need of understanding climate
change, but also allows the solution to community problems. Some of these are
proper waste management disposals, electric reservation, adequate water
consumption, and so on.
The process of spreading the word
in the motive of helping
the Earth can be as easy as talking to family and friends about climate
change issues. We can all work together in building groups and small
organizations that allow the local community to partake. As long as we look
forward to a healthier and greener future, each of us can help and make a
