GOING GREEN, ECO-FRIENDLY, ENVIRONMENTAL CONCIOUSNESS and the 3Rs ♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻♻
In recent years, "going green" and eco-friendly" have become the buzz words in society. But do we understand their true meanings? Being eco-friendly simply means adopting a lifestyle that contributes towards a better ecosystem - nothing that harms the environment. It's about taking small steps towards Mother Earth to make it a better place for the community and its future generations. Green living is the practice of conserving resources like water and energy. When we are aware of what these terminologies mean, we can work effectively towards environmental conciousness.
How do we contribute towards being more eco-friendly?
- Conserving natural resources like water and energy
- Walking more and driving less to reduce carbon footprint
- Eating locally grown vegetables
- Creating less waste
- Planting more trees
The 3Rs are at the heart of the "Go Green" global movement. The 3Rs in environmental concerns denote the elements Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Our natural resources are not inexhaustible, and our often unkind activities have had a profound effect on Mother Earth, affecting climate change. By employing the 3Rs strategy, we aim to care for our environment, ultimately working towards a zero-waste nation.
Why practise the 3Rs?
- Protect the environment
- Conserve limited resources
- Save energy
- Reduce space needed for waste disposal facilities
So let's do a reality check on our lifestyles and opt for choices that make environmental sense. Waste management is a civic responsibilty. Together, we can make a difference - for a greener and more sustainable future. ♻
