Climate change, environmental pollution these are large scale, global problems and it is easy to feel overwhelmed about making a real change. But the truth is, even small changes and efforts made by a single person for households it neighbourhoods can make a big difference in the war against climate change. Here are a few ideas:
Be a Conservationist - use less and reuse more
PRE CYCLE According to a UN report on plastic waste generated globally in 2015 came from product packaging. Vast amounts of resources and fossil fuels are used to produce the paper, plastic, glass, aluminium and styrofoam used for wrapping goods. While some packaging is essential, manufacturing often add extra layers of unnecessary plastic. Give up veggies that are packed individually at superstores and speak to their staff about switching to paper bags. Or take your own to avoid the need for polythene carry bags m. Let stones know you object to such excess by boycotting their products and speaking out. Rally friends and neighbours to do the same. When possible, buy in bulk and look for refill packs or refillable containers.
RECYCLE many cities have facilities for collecting and recycling paper, glass and plastic. Participate in communicate recycling efforts or start one if they aren’t any. If in case 1,00,000 people who currently don’t recycle began to do so, they would collectively reduce carbon emissions by 42,000 tons per year!
