Tips for Green Homes
To bring change in the way we live, we must start taking steps today. Here are some ways below-
1. Say No to Plastic
More than a slogan, it’s a way of life. Plastic is harmful to the environment because, it takes 1000 years to decompose into smaller pieces, which seep down into the soil and release chemicals, which eventually reach the water supply. It kills animals in the water when they eat plastic bags thinking they are jellyfish. The manufacturing of plastic bags is harmful to the environment because non-renewable resources are used like petroleum and natural gas. The manufacturing process itself uses toxic chemicals, pollutes the atmosphere and consumes energy.
2. Plant a Tree for Green Environment
Climate change is our greatest challenge. Earth Day is a reminder to advance climate policy, energy efficiency and clean energy economy. As the challenges facing the planet continue to grow, it is increasingly apparent that the younger generation have got to live and thrive in a weakened environment. We must protect our home by planting more trees.
