What Can Be Done to Help Save the Earth's Environment

Our planet is in great danger. For the last one hundred years or so, the people of earth have wasted and misused the natural recourses of earth. Several plans have been developed to stop the abuse of earth. Some of these plans I will discuss in this essay, many of which can be executed by any one. Environmental problems have become so difficult that many individuals feel they can have no effect on them. Problems like oil spills, hazardous waste, loss of rain forests, endangered species, and acid rain. At the very least, these problems require government help. However, there are some things that individuals can control. Our waste reduction and recycling activities can make a difference. That's why so many communities began voluntary recycling programs. Keeping recycle bins in the kitchen may help to stop people from throwing away things that could have been recycled. Some recyclable items include glass, paper, and cans. Once these bins are full of recyclable materials they can be given to your local recycle centre. A compost bin may be set up in your yard. Compost bins return plant and some food materials to the soil through decomposition so it can be used as a natural soil additive, called compost. Compost also reduces the need to add pesticides to plants, which may be harmful to the environment. The home is not the only place where people can help save the environment. School playgrounds can use recyclable materials for play equipment and to make the playground safe for the children. Jungle gyms, slides and swing sets can be made from recycled metals. We can help, over the last twenty to thirty years we have been trying everything in our power to conserve energy and natural resources, many plans have been developed as to what should be done, all of which are very good ones. The problem with these plans is that not every one contributes to the efforts to reduce pollution and waste, in fact most of the people I know believe recycling is a waste of time and they by themselves cannot make the difference. In some cases, I have found myself questioning my efforts. However, it is still important that we don’t quit. If only every one in every home would decide to do their part and help to keep our air clean, our water unpolluted and our wild life safe. The Earth is our home and we need to protect it.
