It’s scary when you really think about how much humans have damaged the earth. Scientists have warned that we only have 12 years to limit climate change’s catastrophe, and there are even people who don’t believe in climate change.

You may be one voice,but your one action helps.

Here are small steps you can take to help the environment.

1 Green your commute

Cycle

Use public transport

Swim

Walk

Car-share

2 Plug It Out !

Unplug anything you’re not using.

Not using the computer right now? Plug it out !

Not using the toaster at the moment? Plug it out !

How about the hair-drier? You know what to do.

3 Switch

Try to change to energy-efficient light bulbs. This also extends to re-usable batteries. You’ll save money in the long run and help the earth. Everyone wins,right?

4 Hang dry

If you live in a hot country,you don’t need a dryer. Hang dry your clothes as much as possible. Dryers use so much energy and just aren’t good for the environment.

5 Spread the word

Tell your friends,co-workers, family, neighbor and your teacher about climate change. Use social media to spread awareness because what we do now affects us and the next generations to come. We are running out of time fast and if nothing is done, we’ll have nowhere to live.
