By Siwi Setya Utami
Do you know that our earth is not natural anymore? Do you know what are the bad effects of it? And do you know what is responsible for it? Bacause of that problems, everyone has to responsible to keep the balance of the earth. There are many things that we can do which are saving water, stop using plastic bags, and living “greenly”.
First, we can stop using plastic bags. Nowadays, people like to use plastic bags. In fact, the production of plastic bags consume millions of gallons of oil that could be used for fuel and heating. Hundreds of thousands of whales, dolphins, sea turtles and other marine mammals die every year because they ingest the small toxic particle in plastic. So if we don’t use plastic bags, how do we bring our groceries home? Actually, we can use reusable bags made of materials that don’t harm the environment. We don’t need to discard them after each use. Stop using plastic bags would make a great difference in the number of plastic in garbage dumps.
Another way to save our earth is saving water. Water shortage is the biggest problem. The government has adviced to save water. We can take showers insteads of bath for 5 minutes only and turn off the water while soaping body.
Last but not the least, we have to live “greenly”. Walking, biking, using public transportation, and driving less can reduce the gas that causes green house effects. Beside that, they save our money and make us healthy. To converse energy, we can turn off the lamp and air conditioner when you don’t need them. We can also save paper by using e-books, email. And buy a new things when you actually need them. If they break, just repair them.
We have understood the ways to save our earth. I think if all people around the world contribute to do those ways, our earth can be saved and disaster, unwanted accidents, high temperature that occur nowadays can decrease. So that, earth does’t destroy and we can live happily.
