Ways in Which You Can Help to Save The World
Saving the World may conjure up images of Superman flying through the air to defeat a baddy with their finger on the nuclear bomb button, but what if I told you that you can take steps to help save the World too. Naturally, you aren’t going to need a cape nor the ability to fly, but you have it within your grasp, as does everyone else on the planet, to do your bit to save the World from the dangers of climate change.
For years there have been loud voices in the energy industry like that of Jonathan Schrag, demeaning that more and more people do their bit to tackle climate change once and for all. After years of trying, global warming and climate change are now on the World’s agenda and steps are being taken to minimize the effects. You can do your part with just some small changes in your life and today we are going to take a look at some of the ways in which you can help to save the World.
Donating to any one of the large amounts of charities and organizations in the World who are fighting climate change can be a simple yet very effective way to do your bit. Most of these organizations and projects rely on donations in order to keep doing their good work and a small contribution from you each month can go a very long way.
Buy Local Produce
Food miles are something that must be minimized in order to cut down on a number of carbon emissions that are pumped out into the atmosphere. Jet fuel is one of the biggest culprits when it comes to emissions and that dragon fruit which arrives on your plate from the Caribbean has played its part in contributing to the pollution. One way in which you can help is to buy local produce rather than buying exotic items in the supermarket. This will not only support your local industry but also help to drastically reduce food miles.
Saving Energy Around The Home
There are so many things around the home which you can do to bring down your energy usage and also your bills. Many of the actions that you can take are incredibly simple and easy to do but they can have huge impacts on the environment and on your monthly bills. If everyone made the same small changes then the World will be in far better shape. Here then are just some of the things that you can do to bring down energy use in the house.
– Loft insulation
– Taking showers not baths
– Switching off lights when not in use
– Fixing leaking taps
– Closing doors to keep the heat in
– Cavity wall insulation
– Recycling waste
– Walking or cycling instead of using the car
– Replacing light bulbs with energy-saving bulbs
This is just a handful of the things that you should be doing in order to help cut down on the World’s energy usage and do your bit to save the planet!
