Read Time: 3 minutes Producing, packaging, shipping and disposing of food all take a toll on the Earth. To lessen your environmental impact, it’s time to reduce your food waste. We must solve our food waste problem to feed the world while conserving resources.
This Earth is the only Earth we have. The environment we grow up influences our health and well-being. It’s our responsibility to protect it from harm because without proper action, it’ll become inhospitable over time. Easy to understand environmental articles help educate those who may not know the extent of the problem.
There is a lot of talk in the news today about climate change, sustainability, and renewable resources. The resources we use have a direct impact on the environment. Pollutants can harm the air, water, and food sources of all plants and animals. People want to shift away from fossil fuels because they aren’t sustainable and release pollutants and carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Renewables are resources which naturally replenish – wind, solar, biomass, hydrothermal energy, geothermal energy. Some even consider nuclear energy renewable, although that comes with its own dangers. Climate change plays a part in this because we now realize that our past dependence on fossil fuels, among other environmental negligence, lead to an increase in global temperature. We must protect and preserve the environment.
Living sustainably means making a conscious effort to maintain a healthy environment. Consider reducing your carbon footprint, moderating energy and food consumption, as well as reducing excess waste. While it may seem small, any way you positively contribute to the environment, be it recycling or opting to power your home with solar, is for the better. We as a global society have much to learn from the 2016 climate agreement. Bees are dying off and the Great Barrier Reef is still in jeopardy. To counteract climate change we need to come together and take action to fight against pollution and create conversations that promote conservation.
