World Environment Day: Here are 10 things you can do to conserve nature

Floods, cyclones, droughts, pollution, forest fires and falling snow ... India has faced many such natural calamities in the last few years. There has also been frequent discussion of how the severity of those crises has been exacerbated by human intervention in the environment.

In fact, the importance of the environment and how human existence depends on all other factors in (The environment) need not be overstated. Today's young generation is also aware of it. That is why the United Nations has described this generation as #GenerationRestoration.

But how to do this restoration? What can we do about it? So let's start with ourselves.

Why is( World Environment Day) celebrated? What is the theme for 2021?
Avaliya, who teaches us to hug trees, saying, 'Cut us before the trees.'
'Mother, you will never leave me, you will always be with me like a tree'
You may live in a city, or in a village. It is not possible for everyone to make big changes, but even small steps can be important to make a big difference. We have compiled this list by asking environmentalists, activists and experts.

1) Never forget these three R's
You will know the mantra 'Reduce, Reuse, Recycle'.

The more we take from nature, the more it harms the environment. Therefore, use only when needed and the same amount of items. Reducing needs reduces the demand for goods and reduces the stress on nature due to the production of those goods.

This is the formula of an eco-friendly lifestyle.

Lockdown has gotten you used to it. For example, many have realized that working from home does not require a lot of clothing.

2) Where does our food come from? Keep asking this question
Find out where and how the foods we eat are made.

Sometimes harmful ingredients are used in the process of food production. Vehicles are also used to bring food from a distance. Such substances may be wrapped in plastic wrap. Consider whether this can be avoided.

Also consider the 'carbon footprint' of food. A carbon footprint is a measure of the amount of gases emitted by a process that causes global warming.

Since the carbon footprint of non-vegetarian foods is relatively high, many environmentalists advise avoiding or reducing meat consumption. Some even become vegans, meaning they don't eat anything from animals.

But it is not possible to get such statistics of every food and the question arises as to how to fill everyone's stomach. In addition, vegetarians may have a higher carbon footprint.

So what do you want to do Preference was given to locally sourced and sustainable foods.

If possible, plant things like vegetables at home or give preference to goods from nearby areas. So you get the crown. Also, the energy spent on storage and the waste generated by it will not be a problem.

Growers in your area will get support, this bonus.

3) Avoid food spoilage and manage waste
According to the Food Index of the United Nations Environment Program, 17% of food available to consumers in stores, restaurants, and homes is wasted. The food that is wasted in the house is a big part of it.

Compost can be made if food is left over or wasted. Composting can be done even on the balcony of a small house. But if that is not possible, try setting up a compost plant in your society or village.

At least keep wet-dry waste separate in the house. Recycle things like metals and plastics from dry waste.

4) Always remember the importance of water
Make sure there is no water leak in the house. Repair broken hoses and pipes in the house.

If you are in a village, you can participate in water conservation work, if you are in a city, you can arrange rainwater harvesting in the building.

If you are doing agriculture or industry business, focus on using less water and reusing it. Take care that you do not cause pollution in natural water sources like dams, springs, wells.

5) Use alternatives instead of plastic
Be it plastic bags, or even tiny particles of plastic. Be aware of how much they affect the environment.

 Carry a water bottle with you when you go out, so you don't have to buy a plastic bottle. Almost all hotels have water filters or purifiers installed. If you still have doubts about the purity of the water, see if it can be boiled.

6) Be careful while traveling
The use of public vehicles is more beneficial to the environment than private vehicles. But even in many cities in a country like India, the public transport system is not good enough.

At such times, we should think about what kind of vehicle we are traveling in, what we are doing for.

If it is possible to get closer, the option of using a bicycle or walking is also good for health and considering the price of petrol, it is also affordable.

7) Consider using electronic devices

Make sure the temperature of the fridge and freezer is controlled. According to the standards of the European Environment Agency, the temperature of the fridge should be 1 to 4 degrees Celsius and the temperature of the freezer should be -18 degrees Celsius.

Air conditioners lower the room temperature, but add a little more to the outside temperature. Avoid constant use of such devices. In India, the AC temperature should be in the range of 24-28 degrees, say experts.

पर्यावरण
Give away old used electronic items for recycling without throwing them in the same trash. Find out what options are available in your city or on the Internet.

8) Plant only local trees
Help plant, nurture and protect trees in your area. Trees are not just trees, they are the habitat of living things like birds, butterflies, squirrels. So focus on planting native species.

9) Be aware of the surroundings
Get information from experts about the nature of the area you live in, the problems facing the environment and pass it on to others. You can volunteer in private or government activities that work for the environment. (World Environment Day)

10) Keep doing what is possible.
It may seem difficult at first, but once you start, it becomes part of your routine, as all environmentalists report.

While it is not possible to give up a habit or use something completely, it is also important to minimize its use.

Better a poor horse than no horse at all.
