07 Dec How can we improve our environment system?
Unfortunately, humans have not been very good stewards of the Earth over the years. To protect the environmental system and preserve the planet for our children and future generations, we all need to take proactive steps toward cleaner living habits. How can we improve our environment system?
A system that is based on the natural environment and includes biotic and abiotic components which interact. The major environmental systems are the atmosphere (air), biosphere (living organisms), hydrosphere (water), cryosphere (ice), pedosphere (soil), and lithosphere (rock). An ecosystem is the term for a local environmental system.
Some of the possible steps we can do to improve the environmental system are:
- Educate yourself on what can and cannot be recycled in your bins at home. Throwing the wrong items in the recycle bin can result in an entire load being rejected, which means … back to the landfill.
- Instead of heading to the mall to buy new clothes, consider looking first in a thrift store or vintage shop, or trading clothes with friends. You can breathe new life into your wardrobe without wasting the precious resources needed to produce new clothing.
- Check out your local farmers market for fresh, package-free food; try eating at a farm-to-table restaurant; and buy from local artists, clothing makers, and retailers before you click for that two-day shipping.
