In order to understand why saving the planet is important, you must understand what is wrong with it. The simplest answer are we. We are responsible for destroying forests (deforestation), we make a lot of carbon dioxide and we make a lot of trash. As the result, monarch butterflies and bees are dying in huge numbers. These were just some of million side effects of our lifestyle. Luckily, our planet can forgive. This means that we can end the destruction and make the Earth a better place for plants, animals and humans. In order to achieve this, we must change.
The first change you will have to apply to your lifestyle is good for the planet and for your health. You should plant a vegetable garden. Eat fruits and vegetables at least once a week. Vegetables are more eco-friendlier than meat and similar products. Beside you will be healthier, insects and birds will start living in your garden. Also, you will be eating food that caused less pollution during its growth than ordinary food.
In order to sustain, plants need flies, bees and other pollinators. All of them like wildflowers. You can help them by planting several of them in front of your house. Beside they are useful, they look nice and they don’t require maintenance.
Don’t forget to recycle. Trash is a serious problem for the planet. Each person makes 4.4 pounds of trash every day! This is too much. But we recycle only 1/3 of that. The solution is to recycle more. You can even earn money by doing this. Also, your neighborhood and home will be cleaner.
