The reason why we see the environment around us dwindling is because we don’t care. If we did care about the environment around us, it wouldn’t be in the state it is. Yes, each one of us is responsible for the rape of our environment. Yes, we are the guilty ones, and it’s time we accept it and change our shameful ways. The damage that is done to this beautiful world cannot be changed, but we can certainly take steps to retain what’s left of it. Waste and waste products all over the world do humungous damage to the worldaround us. An excellent way to ensure a cleaner and greener environment is by recycling. Thrash that cannot be recycled pollutes the earth. We find waste material all around us. The number of deaths among wild animals is significantly high near camp sites because of consumption of plastic bags that contain leftover waste food. Even though the warnings and posts are aplenty we pay no heed.
The three R’s, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle are meaningless if you don’t implement them in your daily life. It’s simple, supply exists because of demand. The moment demand stops, production ends. Every individual in the world that refuses to use plastic bags is responsible for a change in the environment. If you are one among such individuals, give yourself credit and do not feel shy to pat yourself on the back. Several individuals around the world get rid of utility items that are old, used, or of no use to them by dumping them in the trash. The moment you throw something in your thrash you are putting other life forms in harm’s way because not all that is in bins
There are several trusts, and organizations that accept old clothes, toys and other utility products. These utility items through charitable institutions are given to individuals that are less privileged than you are. By this act you ensure that the world you live in is less polluted with unrecyclable waste, and also help the less privileged. If you opt for packages during shopping, do not dump them in trash. Find ways to reuse or recycle them. There are several recycling groups all over the world you can give away items you consider thrash. When you do this you ensure that waste is reduced drastically.
Apart from buying recycled goods, make sure you keep an eye on goods, commodities or products that are recyclable. For instance if you buy a electronic component make sure you buy one that can be upgraded in the future rather than a cheap component that is not compatible with future requirements. If you are residing an urban area make sure you make use of electronic recycling. Individuals can give away electronic components that they don’t use to others. This could be computers, mobile phones, music systems, or any other electronics lying in your home. Individuals can find ways to recycle water for various purposes. Composting benefits the nature around us significantly and also ensures kitchen waste is reduced. Music is an excellent way of spreading a message. The message about reduce, reuse, recycle is beautifully put forth in Jack Johnson’s song 3 R’s from the movie Curious George.
