Quite often we make the mistake of thinking that there is either nothing that we can do to save the planet, or we think the changes that we can do as individuals is not significant enough to make a difference. This is also fuelled by critical comments that some people say where even the small acts are condemned saying that those acts are not enough or that those acts do not matter unless greater steps are taken.
However, this is completely the wrong attitude and why it is so hard to take any steps towards saving this planet. However, it is now at that critical point that we all have to make those steps, whether they are big or small, towards saving the planet. So how can we as individuals start to make any changes towards saving the planet.
Take Measured Big or Small Steps
The key word here that we have to remember is that we have to take “measured” steps. The reason that this is important is because it then helps us quantify the steps that we are taking, and it also helps us set goals and have marked and quantifiable achievements.
This sense of achievement is important to help keep us motivated and it is a great way to help get others motivated towards saving the planet as well. One of the best ways is to take free surveys online that offer loyalty programs carbon offset for members who have signed up. These sorts of loyalty programs offer some great rewards for those steps that you take towards saving the planned and based on how much of a carbon footprint you leave.
Reduce, Reuse and Recycle
This maybe one of the most cliché phrases when it comes to saving the planet, yet it is still one of the best and most effective way that we as individuals or even as groups or companies can work towards saving the planet. What this simply means is that we take our minds and practices away from the wasteful practices we have come to be accustomed to as a human. We have for the longest time since machines and production lines were invented, become accustomed to a wasteful way of live. We throw away literal tons of food on an hourly basis and we use products quite often with the mind set of using it ones or a very few times before we throw them away.
This is why it is important to reduce our usage or resources and instead try to adopt a new approach where we reuse what we already have and only get new items when needed. Finally, we all have to take those all-important steps towards recycling the waste that we do have to throw out. This will then help, on a much bigger scale, to reduce the global wastage and destruction of our resources. This also means that materials like plastic, are not just thrown away but they are stored and used as needed repeatedly.
With these two all important steps, it is possible for each of us to make those all-important steps towards saving the only place where we can properly call our home. Our planet Earth.
