ENVIRONMENT is everything that surrounds us. Living and non-living things are part of our environment. All the natural resources that sustains life on the planet is from our environment. The environment can be simply called the nature that accommodates for us to live in. It shields us and helps us grow into individual beings. The life of humans and animals is entirely dependent on it. It is the most precious gift of nature. But now our environment is in danger. Our mother Earth is currently facing a lot of environmental problems like global warming, acid rain, air and water pollution, climate change and many more that affect every single living thing that is in it. Saving our environment is vital for sustaining humankind because without a clean environment, none of us will live a comfortable life, or worst, none of us will survive.

“Man is the only animal that fouls its own nest.” This quote makes us aware of our transgressions towards our environment and nature. The environment in which we live now is not the idyllic version of it. The more we pollute the Earth, the less we deserve to live on Earth! Everyone talks about stopping environment pollution but as long as humans exist, it is not possible to STOP pollution entirely. Although we can diminish it. The world was a clean place until we polluted it. The present situation of the world is a consequence of the exploitation of the environment and its resources. A clean environment is essential for us to lead healthy and fulfilling lives. Now, it is the biggest challenge for humans to degenerate the environment to its real state.

Many of us believe that we lead lives that respect nature but our ingesting habits give us away. Many little habits that seem to be sustainable are in fact polluting. As our actions have been not in favor of protecting this planet, we have seen natural disasters striking us more often in the form of typhoons, flash floods, earthquakes and many more. Protecting the environment is not a new word for us. We all know what to do to protect it but the question is, “Are we sure that we really know how to protect the environment?”

There are many things that we can do to help when it comes to saving the environment. There are tons of ways that you can live a sustainable life and help protect the environment. Protecting our planet starts with us. We need to be educated to help others understand the importance and value of our natural resources and make smart choices. We can volunteer for cleanups and tree planting in our community. Trees provides food and oxygen that is essential to our daily living. They also help clean the air and help fight climate change. When it comes to our homes, we can use energy efficient light bulbs to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Choose non-toxic chemicals when you clean the house to avoid sending harmful substance into our waterways that can be harmful also to our health. Let’s conserve water. Cut down on what you throw away and follow the “3Rs (REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE)” to conserve natural resources and landfill space. Bike more, drive less when going out. We just have to discipline ourselves first to attract the attention of others to follow our lead.

We can easily save our environment on the next generations in several ways by accepting and adopting a simple lifestyle. After all, our generation is the one who is currently living and using it. Give them an environment that isn’t damaged and teach them how to continue living sustainably. As a human who lives on Earth, it is our moral responsibility to make sure it is protected. This is the only home that we can live in so let us treat it with care and respect.
