Making a topic won’t help, but will spread awareness to a big platform. Some may hate some make agree but as long as people read this topic and understand what is happening I’ll be ok.
Here are some things you can do now:
Cut of beef. The beef industry is killing the coral reefs. And the biggest beef supplier comes from The Amazon Rainforest. I recently started to not eat beef products and it’s not bad at all. There are other good foods that don’t require any beef in it! (Or what @Zey said, limit beef consumption!)
Refuse single use plastic. Ah yes, plastic… the infamous killer. It takes about 450 years for just ONE plastic bottle to decompose. You use the plastic bottle once in your life whilst it goes and kills tons of animals since it’s a choking hazard. This is why reusable water bottles are such a major Necessity you should think of investing in! I recently got a new one for $18 thanks to Black Friday sales! Not only is it reusable but once you’re done using it forever, it’s recyclable!
Reduce the amount of carbon you produce! You can do something so little to make such a good impact on the earth! Walking to school or biking somewhere is a great way to reduce carbon releases. I walk to the park every week to get some fresh air and it’s right next to my neighborhood! Sure it might take 10 minutes but I sure as heck feel good walking there!
Properly Recycle! Only 9% pieces of plastic actually get recycled! This is because they’re too dirty or not clean to be recycled! So remember to wash your shampoo bottle out so the recycle collector can actually collect it and put it through the process of recycling it!
Bring Awareness! Just like me, you can share, share, and share this topic to everyone! And they’ll share, share, and share to everyone! It’s a cycle!
You know I love you Mel, but most of the human population eats meat, they have been told many times to turn vegetarian but won’t do so because they are Intwined with their lifestyle. It wouldn’t really make a difference.
Humans are carnivores so we can’t completely cut meat, and those who have succeeded only did because with today’s ressources we can replace the nutriments meat brings to us by something else. But even if we all turn vegan, the same problems are going to arise. The problem isn’t that we eat meat, it’s how it’s produced (but you already know that). So if we turn vegan we’re going to do the same thing all over again. We’re not killing the planet, we’re killing us. All this is because we’re too many on earth and I keep joking about how I won’t have kids because we’ll all die before but it’s true, I am actually scared that this will happen. If we keep going on like this, either the climate will kill us, either something else caused/created by humans (example: AI but that’s another story) will end us. We are our biggest enemy.
I remember once in class we saw a documentary on some place called Green City. And if I remember correctly that’s our dream place. If the entire world turned to that ecology, we would see a great difference. But that’s unachievable.
