In my other blog post, The Environment, I promised to being developing a list of steps, individuals can easily implement in their daily lives to live in closer harmony with the planet’s plants, animals, natural resources, ecologies, and environments.
Here is the start of the list. I am by no means an expert on environmental sustainability or the planet’s environments. This is meant to be a start, and to stimulate thinking and ideas.
- Save water – shorter showers; wash clothes less frequently; use publicly available water taps instead of buying bottled water;
- Save energy – turn off lights when leaving a room; visit the library to take out a book instead of using your computer to download the book;
- Save forests – only print on paper when absolutely necessary; borrow a book from a friend or loan from the library instead of buying a book;
- Save on consumption – borrow items rather than buying items;
