Thursday Thirteen : Environmental Care

Thirteen Things about Environmental Care

1. Practice proper garbage segregation at home. Start by segregating biodegradable and non-biodegradable waste.

2. Check out Waste Markets near your area where you can donate or sell recyclable items.

3. Recycle paper to save our trees. Many offices in the Philippines are now using recycled paper in printing office documents. If your office is not yet doing this, try to suggest this to your office admin.

4. Go paperless. If hard copies of reports and other documents are not necessary, save them on the computer instead of printing.

5. Avoid using plastic bags when going to the grocery. Bring your own non-plastic bags that you can re-use. Some supermarkets give you the option to avail of their non-plastic bags for a minimal fee.

6. To avoid adding to air pollution, have your vehicles go through emission test regularly.

7. Conserve electricity at home, in school, at the office ... wherever and whenever possible.

8. Conserve water in all places. For example if you see a faucet in the public bathroom that was left open, make it a point to close it.

9. Support the Clean Air Act. Do not burn garbage.

Plant trees.

11. Teach your own children about the importance of taking care of Mother Earth while they are young so they can grow up with a strong sense of caring for the environment.

12. Encourage others to do their share in taking care of the environment. Every small task counts.

13. Support organizations, foundations and projects dedicated to environmental care and conservation.

My husband and I took part of Project E.A.R.T.H. last Jan. 26, 2008. E.A.R.T.H. stands for Environmental Awareness and Responsive Through Homebuilding. It was a project aimed to encourage residents to sustain the well being of village communities. Below are some photos taken during that day ...
