Despite the efforts in progress of landing humans on Mars, there is still a long way to go before humans will be able to colonize other planets, if ever at all. Until that time comes, earth is your only home and you are responsible to keep it beautiful. This is the home where all your love, hate, attachments, and detachments belong. If you care about your home, here are some ways you can help it stay beautiful forever.
Ways to Keep Earth Beautiful
The first thing you have to do is to get educated. You don’t necessarily have to be a doctor or engineer. In fact, you should devote yourself to the type of art form, skill, profession, etc. that you love. Once you are fully devoted to it, you can innovate in it and find ways to make these professions earth friendly. Don’t leave it on others to come up with technologies and solutions to the problems of the world. If you are devoted to what you do and love it from heart, you can come up with your own innovative solutions too.
Littering is not limited to you throwing an empty can or shopping bag on the road or in your street. Littering now means you leaving a bad footprint on the planet in any form. If you are deliberately using plastic for your convenience even if it contributes to pollution on earth, you are littering. If you are not using recyclable materials even when they are easily available, you are littering. And of course, you are littering when you carelessly throw that empty soda can on the road.
Use Efficient Energy Sources
Replace bad energy with good energy whenever you can. The use of coal, oil, gas, etc. has caused the planet a lot of damage. The best energy source on earth is the Sun. It is in a way a source of infinite energy. Use solar power whenever and wherever you can. You won’t feel like using any other form of energy when you know the many benefits of solar power e.g. reduction in air pollution, reliance on finite sources, etc.
Contribute to Noble Causes
Another important thing you have to do is to contribute to the noble causes. Any organization that works to improve the lives of the living beings should be supported. There are organizations working to prevent addiction, stop animal abuse, put an end to child abuse, etc. You can donate to these causes or volunteer to help with your own hands. You can’t make earth a beautiful home unless you improve the living standards of all living beings including humans and animals.
As someone who lives on planet earth, you are directly responsible for whatever good or bad happens to this beautiful planet. If you cannot be directly a part of any of the endeavors mentioned above, you can at least educate others on this sensitive issue. In simple words, every individual on earth is responsible for this planet and they have to play their part responsibly to make this home a beautiful one.
