It is now established scientific fact that we have been using and misusing natural resources up to the limit. Through deforestation, urbanisation, industrialisation, and pollution, our environment is being destroyed. And it is happening faster than we could have ever imagined.

Global warming and climate change are major threats to the Earth and everything that lives on it. So it is imperative that we start investing in the environment. This is the only way to preserve the earth for our children, and for future generations.

Here are some of the reasons we need to raise awareness to take care of Mother Earth.Trees and plants give us the oxygen that we need in order to breathe. Indeed, we are the beneficiaries of a delicate balance with nature that took millennia to evolve. And it is this balance that allows us to live. If we lose our trees and plants, where will we get our oxygen?Everything we need and use ultimately comes from nature. This is true whether we’re talking about food, the fabric of your clothes, or even the screen you’re looking at now. Mother Earth has blessed us with the resources to provide for our daily needs.

We drink water from the rain, lakes, and snow. We eat the fruits and seeds from the trees, plants from our gardens, and animals from the woods. If we didn’t have any of these things on earth, how would we drink or eat?Think of the last time you spent a day out on the beach. What about the last time you saw a sunrise, or a sunset while hiking? Think about the flowers that you saw blooming, or the different animals that you saw thriving in the wilderness. For many of the people living in this country, it is easy to see how nature is a blessing. It is easy to find joy and happiness in the unique wonders of nature that surround us.Conserve natural resources, and landfill space by following the three R’s – Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.

Cut down on what you throw away. Now, this doesn’t meant that you have to adopt a perfectly zero-waste lifestyle right away. Just do what you can. In fact, the earth will benefit more from many people practising zero-waste imperfectly, than from a few people practising it perfectly.

The best place to start is to simply become conscious of everything you consume and throw away. Just like with spending money, you have to know what you throw away before you can make changes for the better.

Use environmentally sustainable alternatives. For example, you can use rechargeable batteries instead of disposable ones. You can also use reusable hand towels instead of paper towels. The goal here is to consume less, and recycle where you can.Help others by furthering your own education. The more you understand the importance and value of our natural resources, the more you can create awareness and teach future generations.Get involved in community clean-ups. If there aren’t any clean-ups in your neighbourhood, then consider starting one yourself! You can also get involved in protecting your local watershed.The less water you use, the less run-off and wastewater will eventually end up in the ocean.

And when you use less electricity, fewer fossil fuels will have to be burnt. So where possible, use LED lights, hang your laundry to dry, and drive less.

Pro Tip: Biking is not only great for the environment, it’s also great for your health and wallet!Trees provide food and oxygen. They help save energy. They also clean the air. In the fight against climate change, trees are some of our best friends. As the saying goes, the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second time is right now. So go and get planting!As many of us know, the tragedy of a bushfire is anything but business as usual. We would like to take this time to express our sympathy and concern. Our thoughts go out to the people who have lost their lives or their loved ones in the fire, as well as the thousands of people being evacuated from their homes. Our thoughts also go out to the 1.25 billion animals that are feared to have perished. The fact that we have lost so many of our already dwindling koala populations can be described as nothing short of a tragedy.

The smoke and ash from the bushfire have travelled as far as New Zealand. As a result, the summer glacier melt on the South Island is expected to increase by as much as 30%. This is due to the increased heat absorption from the fallen ash.

While climate change does not cause bushfires, it does make them worse. There is no better time for us to commit to playing our part for the environment.
