What You Can Do Right Now !!!

Thepurpose of the Earth Dayis to arouse the human care for the planet: Earth !

Nowadays, Global warming and some environmental pollutions have become a serious problem. Our Earth is sick. It’s time to save our planet . Let’s go action!


Here are 9 points of actions for individuals, organizations, and businesses to do…


Drive your car differently – or drive a different car altogether!

  • Replacing your car with a fuel-efficient car

    HybridCars, cars with a good mileage

  • Drive less!

  • Slow down!


Your house – not too hot, not too cold!

Things you can do to make sure you're maintaining the right temperature in your house include:

  • Turn off your heating system.

  • Make sure windows and doors are closed.

  • Of course, if you can stand it, the best

    way is to avoid using air conditioners.


Take care of your refrigerator monster!

Refrigerator is the biggest consumer of electricity.

  • Older refrigerators areless efficient than the newest one !

  • Turn on your "energy saver“ button.

  • If you don't need it, don't waste the energy.

    Make sure therefrigerator doors close properly,and keep the cool in.


Green plants, more trees to provide shade

  • Planting more trees will help in the short term.


Go organic.

  • We should go organic to protect our land .

    Besides there are other simple things you can do:

  • Eat locally-grown food.

  • Eat fruits and vegetables in season.


Buy recycled

  • Takes less energy to manufacture a recycled product

  • Buy in bulk.

  • Buy one of something, not 21 of something.

  • The recyclable logo (three arrows forming a triangle) is fairly common now.


At last

Go through your closet. Donate or recycle what you really don't need, then make a pledge not to replace everything you just got rid of.

Re-use in creative ways. Be creative in what you use for work, play and leisure. You don't always have to buy new products for activities.

As we said at the start, if everyone follow some points on the list, we can make a difference and change our living space.


Conclusion

  • The same mutual recognition

  • Many little makes a mickle

  • Do from yourself
