Don't you often think that the world is too big and you're just a tiny part of it, so what difference can you possibly make? Well, you must have heard of the saying, "Many a little makes a mickle." So, if you do your bit and so does everyone around you, guess we have a team!
People often see 'changing the world' as the job of researchers and those with environmental expertise, but isn't that just passing the buck? Your little gestures and make a bigger difference than you know of.
So, just in case you're wondering how and where to begin, let us help you with the tougher part. On the occasion of World Environment Day today, let's pledge to make the world a better place to live in.
Here are some easy ways to aid you. Read on!
Remember 'Reuse. Reduce. Recycle' that they taught us in school?
Participate in a blood donation camp and help those in need.
We all know about the scarcity of water, don't we? Don't keep the tap water running. Also remember, buckets are better than showers!
If you're sick of pollution around you, you know the culprit. So, carpool and save fuel.
If you're a pet lover, extend showering your love to other four-legged friends too.
Switch off the lights when not in use. Use CFL to reduce the consumption of energy.
Volunteer and interact with underprivileged kids. Trust me, it's a hugely satisfying experience.
Go ahead and plant a sapling in your backyard. It's a lifetime investment, you'll know.
Donate your eyes for those in need.
I bet there are so many clothes in your closet you don't wear anymore, give away.
Make your own compost. Vegetable peelings, leftovers, garden waste and tea bags.
Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, guys!
