Over the years, the danger to the environment has alarmingly risen. We all owe a duty and obligation to make our Planet a better and healthier place for ourselves and our next generations to live in. Yet we have disrupted the ecological equilibrium by the indiscriminate use of natural resources. Instead of experimenting, it is important that we live in harmony with the environment.
I am sure each one of us wants to Save Environment at any cost. However, saving the environment doesn’t mean protecting only our immediate environment, but also our parks, forest reserves and wildlife sanctuaries too. There is no reason to doubt that we all owe this responsibility to make our Mother Earth; a cleaner and safer place to live in.
The Mother Earth has blessed soincredibly beautiful gifts of nature on human beings, such as rivers, mountains, forests and various natural resources that help us survive every single day on this planet. It is therefore now our turn to work towards saving the environment from the challenges that pose a constant threat to the existence of our Mother Earth.
Unfortunately, there is no part of the world left that has not been affected so much by our acts that the survival of our planet is constantly under threat, whether in the form of land where we live and function, the ozone layer, the water supply, the wildlife or our animals. Of course, the world we live in is not as conducive as it used to be before.
There are different ways in which we can contribute effectively to the cause. We may produce more and more trees in our living areas, for example, as well as when we find an empty piece of land. Or if you’re at home with a backyard or a piece of property, then start planting trees. Use less personal cars and get used to short distances using public transport and bicycles. Don’t waste resources at home or at the workplace. When not in use, shut the system off.
A very important part of our lives is our climate. As we get food, water, air from the environment, it is the principal source of living. In reality, the atmosphere is what sustains us we breathe and live. The quality of our lives is therefore largely dependent on our surroundings.
People lived in peace in previous days, adjusting to the climate; but we are trying to mold the environment in the modern age according to our need and comfort, eventually damaging ourselves indirectly. These contribute to environmental problems around the world, causing problems such as deforestation, loss of biodiversity, contamination of the air, pollution of the rivers due to the inflow of toxic chemicals, waste materials, waste, plastics, etc., global warming and ozone layer weakening, decrease of underground water, reserves of oil and gas and natural resources such as minerals, growth of poisonous gases. We do want to live in an atmosphere that is healthy for us and others, or the environment. An optimal world is one that does not lead to the destruction of natural resources, plants and animals, or human diseases.
Protecting the environment is our responsibility. Yet now, because of our actions and choices, our world is under pressure. We are responsible for environmental pollution. Pollution is responsible for deforestation, mining, unjustified use of and electricity, using multiple vehicles to drive short distances, etc. The features that demonstrate that we live in an imbalanced world are global warming, loss of natural resources, untimely rainfall, , diseases and life in the midst of pollution and many more. Knowing that we’re ruining the world,
It’s not a major job to save the environment; it is not something that can not be tackled. We just need to take a few steps, such as: saving natural resources such as water, electricity, etc. disposing of our waste in the right way and not littering around on roads and public places, etc. increasing more trees, using public vehicles and avoiding each member’s use of personalized vehicles, controlling industrial waste, etc. Isn’t it easy? Yeah, that’s it. We just need to be aware and have control over our actions, and we will certainly end up at least minimizing the bad effects and saving the world by doing our part.
Every action of ours has a result and consequence, result might be the one that we desire for but mostly the consequences are the ones that can be classified as good and bad for our environment. We owe a responsibility to protect the environment by following those minor activities.
“The Earth will not continue to offer its harvest, except with faithful stewardship. We cannot say we love the land and then take steps to destroy it for use by future generations.”
—John Paul II
