How to Save the Earth?

The moment we are born, we start to compare, and race against humans for our individual progress. In this race, we keep running and running and we forget who we are and what we came here for.

Life is meant to be lived and not compared. We all are given the status of human beings and that itself makes us Equal. We have all attained that status then, WHY run and tire us out mentally and physically? Why don't we try to think about something else other than US since ultimately the circle of life will come back to us?

How about we race to save our planet?

If we all unite and take steps to make the necessary changes to save earth's resources, we could make this planet a better place for us and for our future generation.

Why don't we run for some motive such as saving our planet from Global warming? We have to just tweak our lifestyle a little bit and try to accommodate with the minimum rather than getting hold of all the things we need to survive.

Most men love challenges, right?

Then why don't we try to live in a civilized world with the pretense that we are camping out in the woods. Let's us think of the time when we go camping and we can survive those 2 nights without the comforts of city life. In fact, we all come back with a smile on our face and are rejuvenated.

Why?

Sure, living with nature always helps the mental being of a person but besides that we were without the clutter of our everyday life, which we depend on for every small thing. We learn to accommodate and we learn to be happy with our minimum resources

Ways to save our planet

We can make subtle changes in our life such as:-

  • Limit the use of water. Man should try to limit the use of Water by being aware when the tap is ON and try to conserve the usage of water. By using Cold water, one is limiting the use of Electricity, which helps our environment.
  • Let us try to plan our trip when using the car ,which will help reduce green house gas emissions by an average of 1590 pounds per year.
  • We are very smart humans thus, need to keep our self active to stay smart and that can be achieved by some physical exercise so, let's try to opt to walk or ride a bicycle to work, school or any place that is possible.
  • Carpooling also helps the human being to commute faster and since humans are social animals, they will get company in the car while driving which will help them keep entertained talking to a live person rather than listening to the radio all alone. Every Car NOT on the road makes a difference.
  • Recycling can help reduce pollution and also help the conservation of our resources so, think twice before you dump the can of soda. Make sure you put it in the Recycle bin.
  • Compost helps reducing the amount of solid waste we produce in a year so, by reducing the amount of solid waste we produce will help take up less space in landfills and our tax dollars can work somewhere else. Compost also helps make a natural fertilizer.

Let us try to adapt the 3 R's in our lives:--Re-use, Reduce, Recycle. This will help our Planet, which in turn will help us sustain on it for generations to come.

Let us all unite to race for our Mother Earth. So, Let's all line up and let us start our Race...Ready Set GO!!

Carpooling for the social benefits is a unique way to present that opportunity. Well done!

Nicely said.. we keep running and running. If we stop for a moment, sometime in our life and think where we are running and what we are doing, fear comes in. In that process, some transform, some start running again to forget themselves.

Sure Jeyaprakash84...I wish our running around so much would make us fit ;) but unfortunately it is making us more stressed out and our end product is not so good.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting...appreciate it!

Beautiful hub with lots of ideas to save our Earth. However, with water found on Mars, we should be highlighting these ideas for Mars now :)

Hello Ruchira,

You make some good points. However, we need to also get the bigger polluters on board too. I heard that the total UK emissions is about 1% of China's, while I don't know how accurate that is, we need the big players and businesses to stop focusing on only maximizing profits and to join the fight to make this a success!

Shared, up and interesting.

Hi Shampa,

ALWAYS a pleasure to hear from you. I am glad to get your seal of confidence, my friend!

I agree Brett. Big companies are the MAIN culprits since; they are only focussing on their profits. We have to make them aware of the grim situation we are in, right now.

I am happy to get your vote of confidence in the above. Thanks!
