World Earth Day is a day to make you aware of what is happening to the earth.
This is a good idea but why only on this day?
People should think about the environment everyday and not just for a couple of hours on a specific day. If people practiced saving energy and natural recourses and thought about how much water, gas, energy or other things that they use throughout their day we wouldn’t need to be reminded once a year that the earth’s resources are slowly but defiantly dwindling away.
Society seems to have gotten so greedy that they only think about themselves and what they need and not on the next generations to come and will there be anything left for those generations too?
There are so many ways a household can make their mark on the environment but are they willing to and do they maybe want to do without? This I doubt very much and so there you go the problem with the environment.
I myself can see the changes in the world around me that are caused from waste. Look at the oceans with all the plastic floating around in it and this being ingested by fish or they get tangled up in it and die. But as many think -> who cares; out of sight out of mind!
Or why does everyone have to own so many cars and then they all wonder -> why is there a gas shortage and prices are rising. Really now folks get real!
Or do you really need to watch TV 24/7 because the television set consumes a lot of energy and you have to pay for the electricity too. Maybe, ever thought of a TV free day or reading a book that could stimulate the mind as an alternative.
Another one is what ever happened to the good’ol clothes line where you hung your clothes out to dry and the wind and the sun dried them and they smelled good too and all that without the need of an electric dryer. The wonders of nature can be fascinating!!
There are thousands of ways that people can help out and still enjoy life. It is just a matter of starting to change your life style and not always procrastinate and say that I’ll start that tomorrow because you know as well as I do “Tomorrow never comes”
Think about what you can do and maybe you will feel better about yourself by doing your bit for the earth!
