The most precious thing we have is the ability to live on this planet. If the resources on this planet are diminished to the level in which we can not survive on it, then we lose are vital ability to save the planet earth. It is a well known fact that the ozone layer is being depleted at a alarming rate. It is not possible to reverse the clock, but it is possible to start taking care of are most vital treasure. Some of the very simple ways people can start saving the earth is to really start appreciating the fact that it can be taken away. For so many years huge corporations and the average citizen have automatically assumed that the earth was ours forever no matter how we treated it. Most of us are now aware that we can not continue to abuse the planet with out any ramifications. I am going to introduce just a few steps the average citizen can help save the earth. The first one is recycling. A plastic bottle takes thousands of years to degrade in the earths soil causing harm to the quality of earth. Small animals often get sick from chipping away at this re-usable plastic. It only takes a few seconds to store all your plastics in a separate bag then your regular trash. At the same time you can have a small automatic savings plan just by collecting cans, plastics and glass. Another way to help save the earth is to walk as much as you can. If the store is just a few blocks down the street , start taking the time to walk instead of getting in your car zooming off. You’ll save mileage, help keep the air cleaner and get your self some much needed exercise. Utilize in scents instead of constantly spraying with aerosol sprays. It’s much more economical and will allow you to breath easier.
If you’re a smoker try at least cutting down. Try some of the great products on the market which help smokers quit or cut down. Cigarettes have carcinogenic toxins inside of them that help to slowly eat into the ozone layers. Saving the planet is also a spiritual mind-set we must continue to develop and utilize. We must look at the earth as our extended body. Do some research by going to your local library or use a search engine on the internet and search on how to save the planet. Just changing our mindset and putting the time into research and use that knowledge by taking action. Utilizing these few simple but powerful methods is what will truly save the earth. We will be giving future generations to come the opportunity to enjoy life on this planet as we and our forefathers have enjoyed for thousands and even millions of years.
