Public Transport Is the Answer!
Watched? Now let me tell you something. What will happen if you start using public transport more often? You won’t get any financial loss. Rather you will save some money.
If you must use your own vehicle, then use an electric one if possible. It will save an extreme amount of petrol and diesel. The consumption of petrol and diesel have a negative impact on our planet.
So, it will be a good start towards stopping or even minimizing climate change.
Say No To Plastic
There are some places where the use of plastic is banned. Still, people use it. We need to understand that our behavior is harming the environment. Most of the plastic goes into the ocean. So, as a result, aquatic animals die because of that plastic. And so does our environment.
It would be a wise decision if you stop using plastic at all. Everything has an alternative. Use paper bags in place of plastic bags. You will find anything which can replace plastic.
Use Renewable Energy
With getting cheaper and cheaper, renewable energy is the best choice for you for your budget and the environment. Replacing your traditional light bulb with the LED bulb will save you up to $125 as the LED bulb is 80% energy efficient.
A town in India is completely reliant on solar energy. Some people in Canada are also using renewables.
It starts with you but should not end with you. Let people understand what they are doing with and it is affecting themselves. Educate people on this matter in any way possible.
If you tell 10 people, maybe 7 will listen, maybe 3 or 1. But it will start something. That single person you motivated will again tell 10 people and thus more people will learn how to stop climate change by doing their part.
Reduce Water Waste
You may have come across the news of Chennai (India) Water Crisis. Why did this happen? Both nature and people are to blame.
People waste too much water every minute. If they stop this wastage, the water level will rise and two problems can get solved. People will get water where it is very low. And the earth’s temperature will get down.
Don’t Waste Food
Use organic food most of the times. Don’t waste the food you are getting. Eat more vegetables and less meat. If you waste no food, you are making less energy consumption. Eating less meat would make a big difference even if it does sound weird to you.
So by these 6 ways, you can help to stop the climate change.
