Why The Planet Earth Needs Saving

We need to take a stand against pollution and global warming because if we don’t, then our children will grow up in an environment that they know nothing about; one where natural disasters happen much more often than ever before; and one where wildlife populations dwindle as their habitats disappear.

More Reasons to Save The Planet Earth

We’ve seen the effects of climate change, deforestation, and pollution all around us, and we know it’s time to do something about it.

  • Our oceans are becoming more acidic, our forests are disappearing, and we’re depleting the earth’s resources at an alarming rate. The good news is that there are many more ways to get involved with environmental activism and help save the planet earth for future generations.
  • Now is not the time to be complacent; now is the time to take action! There are many different ways you can help save our planet from total destruction- here are just a few:

Tips to Save the Planet Earth

Volunteer your time (or money) at a nonprofit agency; write letters to politicians about pending legislation impacting the environment; take part in beach cleanups by removing trash from coastlines; advocate for sustainable food choices when grocery shopping or eating out; buy products made with recycled materials.

Environmental damage has been done, so here are the main things you can do today to help save the planet earth:

  • Reduce waste by always using reusable grocery bags and bottles
  • Turn off lights when not in use. Use a smart power strip so that you can turn all your electronics on or off with one switch, and unplug appliances at night for example televisions or refrigerators.
  • Plant trees (or other plants). Making these simple changes will go a long way towards preserving our earth for future generations.

Another way is recycling items like paper products, plastic containers, glass bottles, and aluminum cans; it’s very easy these days because there are many recycling bins in public places such as malls or libraries so you don’t have to worry about taking them home yourself!

It’s not too late! You can do your part to save the planet. It starts with you, and it starts now. We need all hands on deck to make a difference, so grab a friend and get started today!

More Tips to Save The Planet Earth

1. Use paper towels instead of using a dish towel for drying dishes.

2. Use a digital calendar and turn off your “screen saver” to help conserve energy.

3. When cooking, use the appropriate size pan for what you’re making so you aren’t using more pans than necessary. This helps to reduce cleanup time as well!

4. Save the planet one bag at a time by bringing your own reusable grocery bags to the store instead of using paper or plastic bags.

5. Hang-dry clothes if it’s sunny outside, don’t use heat in your dryer, which can save hundreds of dollars annually on your energy usage!

6. Instead of buying pre-cut fruits and vegetables (which usually comes in wasteful packaging), opt for buying produce whole and cutting them yourself (or hiring a service to cut them for you).

7. Use the buddy system! When at home, try to do everything in batches. For example, laundry loads or rinsing out recyclables/garbage before putting it away.

8. Fight for environmental justice

9. Work towards renewable energy sources

Last but certainly not least important is eating less meat which will reduce humanity’s carbon footprint as a whole.
