With the rate of consumption of products today, things are produced, consumed and disposed of at an alarming rate. The continual deposition of these wastes is on the verge of destroying the ecosystem and the environment with everything in it including us humans with the increase of toxic, ‘non-eco-friendly’ waste materials surrounding us. These products as a result of technological advancement have become so sophisticated that nature so to say, is unable to decompose, that is, break down these substances to non-toxic forms. For example, polythene used in producing shopping bags is non-biodegradable and usually accumulates in landfills taking up a lot of space. This non-biodegradable waste can last for centuries without being degraded and could cause serious environmental problems. With the problem of this pollution also comes the shortage of raw materials, resources, and energy as most of it is wastefully channeled into production of new products as the demand for recycled products is low. To put it in perspective, It would be a blatant injustice to call pollution caused by the disposal of plastic wastes anything short of a catastrophy:
In a study by the U.S. Centres for Disease Control, almost 92 percent of people tested positive for Bisphenol A (a potentially dangerous chemical present in products made from plastics).
Think it’s none of your business or the problem is too much a big deal for you to make an impact? Well, think again! Switching to environmentally safe, green going products does not take too much of an effort for any individual who having had enough of polluting the environment and contributing to global warming wishes to contribute to the sustainability of environment and do their share of the sustainability of the environment by making use of eco-friendlier products to cut down pollution and contamination of the natural resources such as the air, water, and soil. One of the best ways to fight pollution is to live by example and ensure the products you buy are produced with both ethics and the environment in mind. Creating a green, eco-friendly home is actually a lot easier than what a lot of us may think. Many people are put down by thinking that going green would consume a lot of effort, time and money too; but actually, working towards an eco-friendly home is not that difficult. It’s hard not to notice that going green is now everywhere; you’d have to be dead to miss it –in the news, politics, fashion, and even technology. You just can’t run away from it on the Internet. We have no problems with that, in fact, that is great news! But with an avalanche of messages and ideas coming at us from every possible direction, getting trapped in the quotidian stuff is easy–switching to organic foods, turning off the light bulbs, recycling, say — without thinking about the big picture of how your actions stack up. Even worse, you could grow tired of the ‘greenness’ — that is, tuning out the green messages due to their being virtually everywhere.
While it’s easy to get overpowered, it’s also easy to start making efforts towards creating a positive impact. As globalization makes the world smaller, it becomes a lot easier to see in real time, how the lives of people (and plants and animals and ecosystems) are in a harmonious sync. Toys made in China can affect the quality of life in Europe, pesticides used in Mexico can influence the health of people in the U.S., and greenhouse gas emissions from Canada can influence a diminishing rainforest in Nigeria. The truth is that everything single thing we do every day has an impact on the planet whether positive or negative. The good news is that as an individual you have the power to control most of your choices and, therefore, the impact you create: from where you live to what you buy, eat, and use to light your home to where and how you spend your vacation, to how you shop or vote, you impact could reach a global scale. For example, did you know that 25 percent of Western pharmaceuticals are derived from flora that comes from the Amazon rainforest? And that scientist have tested less than one percent of these tropical trees and plants? These numbers suggest that we all have a large (and growing) personal stake in the health and vitality of places far and near. In addition to preserving wildlife and biodiversity (and inspiring medicine), rainforests are also excellent carbon sinks. Bottom line: It benefits everyone on the planet to help keep our forests growing.
Embracing a greener lifestyle goes beyond just about helping to preserve rainforests in the equatorial regions, it can also mean improving your health, taking the heat off your bank account, and, ultimately, improving your overall quality of life. All that and you can save furry animals, too? Why wouldn’t you want to embrace a greener lifestyle?
A plausible and sustainable alternative that will reduce the gradual destruction of our planet would be the use of eco-friendly products. These eco-friendly products are products that bring no harm or are known to have no detrimental effects on the ecosystem or the environment whether during production or after production during usage and disposal. Also referred to as green going products, these eco-friendly products being compostable, recyclable and susceptible to biodegradation usually pose no threat to the ecosystem or the environment. Recycled materials are sometimes used in the production of these products. The use of these recycled materials for production, in turn, reduces the amount of waste continually deposited in landfills and incinerators. These products when used can achieve a significant reduction in carbon footprints, and also cuts down the release of greenhouse gases. A native American proverb says “We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.” Going green is a personal choice that is embraced by individuals to contribute their quota towards making this planet a better place to live for future generations to come. Going green has a lot of benefits for us whether individually or corporately as a group. Some of these benefits include:
