The environment is a key part to our life that most people over look. If it weren’t for trees, we would not be able to breathe and neither would other animals. If the other animals we share this planet with died, than we would not have meat or other animal products like wool. The ecosystem is a perfectly balanced thing, and if one piece goes missing everything goes out of whack. This means we have to do everything we can to preserve it.
A simple thing that everyone can do to help the environment is the three R’s. They are reduce, reuse, and recycle. For reduce all you have to do is use less and produce less waste. You can do this in your daily life by drinking tap water instead of bottles, or you can do it on a bigger picture if you are a business owner by changing your products packaging to use less. The nest thing is reuse. Instead of throwing everything away you can find other uses for it. For example don’t throw out your plastic milk jug; instead you can cut the milk jug in half and use it as a planter. Last, is recycle. If you can’t find a way to reuse metal, plastic, glass or paper, then you can recycle it. When you recycle the material is broken back down to a more natural state, and then it is reused again to make more items. This means we use less resources to produce things. For example aluminum cans can be melted down and made into more cans.
If we don’t protect our environment, then our future is bleak. This is especially true for our future generations. Even you can do a lot to help, and if you want to learn more check out ACM Group’s website. At their website ACM Group covers a lot of different ways you can help protect the environment and also explains projects they are involved in.
