No matter in which country you live in, it is our duty as responsible citizens to make an effort to keep it free and reduce the level of pollution. Here are few tips which will help you do this:
Start within yourself
It is pretty easy to put the blame on other people. For example many people complain that the government is responsible as they don’t do enough to keep the country clean. While this can be true, it is also our duty to not litter on the roads. If every person makes a habit of throwing things on bin instead of the road then our roads will always be clean. So instead of blaming others try to make a change and set an example so other people will look up to you and follow your habits! If you feel that government hasn’t done enough then you could write to the respective authority and ask them to provide more skip bins in every area. Governments on the other hand can impose heavy fines on those who litter the road; this policy has been strictly followed by many countries.
Be eco friendly
You also need to make sure that you aren’t damaging the growth of future generations. You need to avoid things like use of plastic because of the long term damage it has on our environment. It might be impossible to completely ban it but you could make few simple changes that will reduce it to a great extent. For example when going to supermarket or any grocery store, carry your own bag so you will not have to use the plastic. Also supermarkets should charge per plastic bag they provide, and this too will help to reduce the use of it. Each area could get a skip bin hire instead of buying it and collect all the plastic waste on it so it can be recycled. According to the statics only 9% of plastic gets recycled and there is high demand for it. Recycling is a sensible option which will benefit the future generations as well.
Minimize the level of air pollution
Sometimes we don’t realize but all of us contribute towards the air pollution. For example almost all the families have over two vehicles which leads to more consumption of petrol and damages the environment. So you should try to do car pooling, this way you save non renewable resources and also reduces the traffic levels. You could switch to energy efficient cars which work on battery such as hybrid instead of petrol consuming cars.Lastly you should switch to more eco friendly systems such as use solar power electricity. If every home tries to incorporate the above mentioned factors into their lifestyle, then this planet earth will be a better place to live at!
