It is April 22nd and it is Earth Day once again. Slightly over a month ago, the entire world came as one over the glitzy Earth Hour campaign, giving their pledge to uphold the universe and save the world from extinction.
It was an effort definitely worth admiring for. However, the euphoria over “saving the environment” then went quiet – very quiet indeed. In fact, most of us went back to our daily routine, and all the fuss about saving the environment, going green and stopping global warming came to a halt. It’s as though everyone suddenly had dementia and forgot what just happened the night before, it’s as though the whole campaign is like a pop reality show where the excitement ends when the show is over.
This should not be the case. Earth Day or Earth Hour should be celebrated on a daily basis. In that spirit, Exabytes have interviewed some of our family members and they have come up with 3 brilliant things you can do to continue help save the environment. The effort may be little, but if done every day, it will definitely give a huge impact to the world!
- “Walk, don’t drive. Think of how much greenhouse gases you get to reduce if you can stay off the road in just two days a week while burning some calories and improving your health too. If you can’t walk or bike, consider carpool instead. Every car not on the road makes a difference.”
- “Turn off the water tap while you’re brushing your teeth. Everytime you do this, you’re contributing something good to the environment. The little things can make a big difference.”
- “Often a few times I see people leaving their car running while they wait for someone. It’s okay to leave it on if you know you’ll be there for less than a minute. Otherwise it’s more efficient to turn it off and restart it when you’re ready to go,”
We’ve said our piece of mind. Now what about you? Care to share your tips to continue saving the environment? Remember, it need not be something complicated – even the littlest of thing helps!
Happy saving the world, and happy Earth Day, everybody! 😉
