Does Mother Nature affect you and your way of living?

For the vast majority of us, she most certainly does. From electricity to water, and from fossil fuels to the food we eat, she has an effect on all of us.

Without the resources we cultivate from nature, we could not generate electricity, fuel cars or get planes off of the ground.

Your impact on Mother Nature is another subject entirely. Yes, there are some factories that wipe out forests, and yes there are companies that dump vast amounts of waste into our oceans. But even everyday people can have an impact on the environment and help improve it.

It’s one thing to say “What can I do about it.” It’s quite another to say, “I’m going to do something about it.” However small that contribution is, it is a contribution and does not go unnoticed.

We can all make a decision to do more and we can all do something about it. Here, we’ll examine a few ways that you can start making a change and contributing to the preservation of our environment.

I’m June Zwan and I advocate for everyone to learn more about nature. Here are some reasons you might want to join me.

  • Nature is crucial for healthy living

The environment becomes more and more infused with pollutants if it is not taken care of. Toxins and contaminants are potential health risks. Eventually, they may affect your overall health. Researchers have said that some health conditions such as bronchitis, asthma attacks, heart attacks and premature mortality are highly linked to outdoor air pollution. Preventing pollution to cut down on toxins and contaminants released to the air and water bodies should be a priority.

You can be more active by calling your local water treatment facility and asking about their procedures or campaigning for the improvement of natural resources.

  • Combat Earth’s increasing temperature

Are you aware that a relatively small change in temperature can lead to regular occurrences of harmful weather patterns? Global warming is a worldwide issue. It is real. Climate change too is on the rise.

Do some research on the subject and learn more about global weather patterns as well as the changes that are occurring now. Visit more than one source of information and make your own conclusions. Nasa has published an article about evidence of global climate change on their website that may help steer you in the right direction.

  • Earth is your home

Whether actually attributable to Gandhi or just a clever bumper sticker, the saying goes, “Be the change you want to see in the world.”

We all live on this planet. We may not be eat the same food, love the same sports, live the same lives, but we all rely on the same resources. It’s our job to do something to care for the Earth and take some part in making it a better place then we found it.

There are so many ways that you can contribute and care for it, from planting a tree to conserving energy to recycling. Whatever impact you have, doing something about it is better than doing nothing at all. So, let’s all play the game of making this Earth great and striving towards peace with Mother Nature and all her inhabitants.
