Over the years, taking good care of nature has gained strength due to the constant alerts of pollution, scarcity of resources and health problems like allergies in newer generations.
Unfortunately many people think that caring for the environment is a duty for big companies, but no. Caring for the planet is everyone’s job!
Even small actions contribute to a healthier planet…
HOW CAN WE IMPROVE?
• Avoid buying bottled water! Remember to take your thermos everywhere and fill yours with water instead of buying plastic bottles. This will not only beneficial to your pocket, it will also reduce the number of plastic bottles that end up in the sea.
• Create a green space in your home. In addition to giving a colorful touch to your home and harmonizing your environment, having trees or plants in your garden will strengthen your connection with nature.
• Dispose of electronic waste in the corresponding places. Because it is important right? Because some of the components of electronic devices contain chemicals or heavy metals that are toxic for both, us and nature…
• Take cloth bags to the grocery store. As you know, in the next few months plastic bags will progressively stop being sold in supermarkets. Therefore, although it is a bit annoying for some at the beginning, this measure is reducing part of the bags that end up polluting the streets.
• Recycle. We know that this measure seems like the less exciting for some people but in reality it contributes a lot! Remember that in many supermarkets you can find deposits to recycle…. you can even sell it and generate some extra money
You, the children of the world and your grandchildren deserve a healthy planet, where we can breathe clean air and grow along with nature. Remember that all actions, no matter how small, are worthy. Do you take care of our planet?
