What does it mean to be green? “Green” is more than just a color. It also means taking special steps to protect the environment — the water, the land, and the air we breathe. Why green? Plants are green, and without them the Earth wouldn’t be such a lovely home for us human beings. Every day, people make choices that affect the amount of trash and pollution that gets produced in our world. You can reduce the amount of stuff you use and throw away or recycle cans, bottles and paper.
When you use less of something, you do a good thing for the Earth. For instance, a shorter shower means you used less water and less fuel since your house uses fuel to run the water heater that warmed up the water. You can also turn off lights you’re not using. Besides you should turn off the water when you’re brushing your teeth. When you can, walk or ride your bike instead of riding in a car. You’ll use less gas — and get some exercise!
It’s true that trash and pollution are problems, but the Earth remains a huge and glorious place that’s ready for you to explore. You can start locally by visiting the naturally beautiful spots in your city and state. Go for a hike, visit local nature centers and gardens, climb up mountains, and explore lazy creeks. Experience the outdoors in all sorts of weather — from a sunny day at the beach or lake to a wintry adventure when it snows. And if you’re planning a family vacation, suggest a trip to a national treasure.
Sometimes people call ours a “throwaway society.” That means that we’re a little too willing to throw away old stuff and buy new stuff. Many times, even if you no longer need something, someone else just might. You can choose reusable travel cups instead of disposable paper or plastic cups. You can also take your own bags — preferably reusable ones — when you go to the grocery store. It is better to take paper from your computer printouts and use the other side for more computer printing.
We all have something to offer and needs to fill. The more we can provide for each other locally, the closer we are to sustainability. Organize a swap among your friends. The swaps are fun, social events and often include potluck food, music and crafting. What can you swap? Books, toys, even clothes. It’s a way for everyone to get something new without spending any money and without throwing a bunch of stuff away. Set aside some items for your swap when you’re cleaning your room!
Recycling has never been easier. Many communities will pick it up right in front of your house and some towns even require it. You can organize the recyclable items in bins, remember to put them on the curb on recycling day, and help remind others which items can be rinsed and recycled. By separating plastic bottles, cans, bottles, and more, you’re reducing the amount of trash that goes to the landfill. Recycled goods go instead to a recycling center, where they can be turned into new cans, bottles, and paper.
