So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.
God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.
~~~~~~ Excerpt of the book of Genesis from the Holy Bible ~~~~~~
People often forget that God’s every creation is supposed to coexist and serve each other’s necessity. In scientific theories as well this arrangement is often discussed as ‘Food Chain’. So why we the superior beings forgetting the God’s aim behind creating the world and crossing the line? Obviously with the rapidly disturbing ecological balance somebody has to pay a price for it, and so earthquakes, Tsunamis, floods etc.
Here are 5 quick tips that any common man can do to contribute in making this world greener:
Reuse Books & Use Recycled Paper Copies:
The new school sessions are about to start and with that most children wish for brand new books, fancy bags, tiffin boxes etc. As parents motivate your child to take books from elder siblings and reuse the books. It will not only save money but several trees that get cut to make paper out of them. Also for study practice purpose at home children can use copies (commonly known as rough copy) made of recycled paper.
Adopt Plant Instead of Pet:
Well! this tip would definitely be hated by some pet lovers but if given a thought more carefully is adopting a plant a more noble act. After all, every animal has the right to live in their natural habitat. Growing a plant or adopting a tree on birthdays or special occasions and regularly maintaining it can lead to a bond equally stronger like the one with a pet. One more thing and trust me on this part when the plant or tree will bear the flowers or fruits it will one of the most satisfying feelings.
Take That Print, But Print on Both Sides:
In corporate culture though we often talk about going paperless still many organisations and people prefer to take prints. If possible reduce the amount of per day prints you take or if possible get prints on both sides of the paper. This will drastically reduce the amount of paper used for printing purpose. A cost-effective idea that is beneficial to companies as well environment.
Leaves – Bury Them, Don’t Burn Them:
Often in our garden or housing societies there are piles of leaves accumulated in the cleaning process and then are burnt off. Burning leaves adds to air pollution which is not good for the ecosystem. So why not bury those leaves. Burying leaves in soil will act as natural decomposer for the leaves while naturally enriching the soil.
Become Energy Efficient:
At home or workplace, we can become energy-efficient by first of all buying all electronic appliances with a good energy star rating. Secondly turning off the lights and unplugging charging devices can also save a lot of energy that is being lost without any benefit. A major advantage of this for you would be drastically lesser electricity bill.
These are some simple steps that we all can follow and make earth a greener place to live. If you agree or disagree with me on this topic, do write back to me.
