8 Simple Ways to Help the Environment

By Qurrat-ul-Ain Kamal 

      Aqsa Yaqoob

There are several ways that we can help to protect our environment but we will tell you about the 8 simple ways that will help you to protect the environment.

1).Use transformable bags
Plastic grocery-type bags that get thrown out end up in landfills or in other parts of the environment. These can suffocate animals who get stuck in them or may mistake them for food. It also takes a while for the bags to decompose. Whether you are shopping for food, clothes or books, use a durable bag. This cuts down on litter and prevents animals from getting a hold of them.

2). Print as much as required
Using so much paper is detrimental to our environment. Ask your teacher if you can bring a laptop or an e-reader to class so that you can download the reading onto that and read it from there. If not, print on both sides of the page to reduce the amount of paper used. Most teachers care about the environment as well and would be willing to allow you to do so.
3). Reuse
Reuse is such a simple thing to do, but so many people don’t do it. Many garbage disposal companies offer recycling services, so check with the company you use to see if they can help you get started! It is as simple as getting a bin and putting it out with your trash cans for free! Another way to recycle is to look for recycling cans near trashcans.

4). Use Reusable potable Containerss
Instead of buying individually-packaged drinks, consider buying a bulk container of the beverage you want and buying a reusable water bottle. Not only will this help the environment, but it will also help you save money since you are buying a bulk container. Many campuses offer water fountains designed for drinking as well as for refilling reusable water bottles. Make use of these fountains throughout the day when you finish off the initial beverage.

5. Don’t discard your notes
If you took great notes, ask your teacher to connect you with students in a future class so that you can give them your notes. These notes will help students by being able to read what they are learning in the words of another student. It is beneficial to read things that are worded differently than what the teacher said. You may need to find a student on your own, depending on the teacher’s load for the semester.

6. Save energy
Use energy-efficient light bulbs instead of regular bulbs. They last longer, which will save you a bit of money. Make you turn off lights, the TV, and other appliances when you are not using them. Lower your air conditioning or heat when it’s not necessary. This is especially true for between seasons. Open your windows in the early fall or layering your clothes in the early fall.

7. Save Water
Water is wasted more frequently than we can see. Turn off the faucet as you are brushing your teeth. Don’t turn your shower on until you’re ready to get in and wash your hair. Limit your water usage as you wash dishes. Changing old habits will be good for both the environment and your wallet.

8. Avoid Taking Cars or motor pool when feasible
Cars are harmful to the environment. Taking public transportation, walking, or riding a bike to class are better options that help the environment and your budget, as well as getting some exercise in.
