You may not know this but the effect of climate change is worsening every year. It is time every human being should ask themselves one question, what can I do to help?
Save electricity by switching off lights and unplugging appliances
The basic rule is: if you are not using it, turn it off. Simple switching off the lights when you leave the room can help you save money on your bill. To know how much energy you are saving, look at your bulb wattage and divide it by 1,000. Then, to find out how much money you are saving, you can look at your electric bill and check how much you are being charged per kilowatt hour.
The same thing applies for plugged devices. Sometimes, we are consuming unnecessary electricity because we leave it plugged in.
Use reusable bags when grocery shopping
A lot of disturbing videos show animals dying because they accidentally got stuck or ate plastic materials that we throw in the drainage and water bodies. That is why various campaigns have started pushing for efforts to stop using plastic material and instead use reusable bags or straws.
Avoiding to use plastic starts with bringing reusable bags with you when you go grocery shopping. This will encourage establishments to make their packaging more environmental friendly, and hopefully prevent animal death by plastic, albeit in a small way.
These little actions can help the environment in big ways if we all continue practicing it.
