People often use the words 'conservation' and 'sustainability' but how much do they follow these in their daily lives?
World Nature Conservation Day, celebrated every year on July 28th, is marked internationally to spread awareness about the best practices to protect the natural resources, recognizes that a healthy environment is a foundation for a stable and productive society and to ensure the well-being of present and future generations, we all must participate to protect, conserve, and sustainably manage our natural resources.
- Discourage wastage of food, water and items of regular use.
- Switch off lights, heaters, fans and air conditioners when you leave the room.
- Composting the daily vegetable peels can go a long way in developing a self-sufficient and sustainable life.
- Try growing your own herbs and vegetables of daily use.
- Pay attention to how you shop. Choose sustainably and more organic brands
- Recycle as much as possible! If your neighbourhood or apartment complex doesn’t offer recycling pickup, either find a drop-off location or request the curbside service. Buying products labelled post-consumer lets companies know that recycling is the way to go!
Switch to reusable water bottles. Switching to reusable water bottles such as a mason jar or an ethically made product is an easy way to eliminate your use of plastics. And like most sustainable options, it will save money.
