Save planet by prevention
Littering and producing litter is a big problem these days and solving it needs a giant work of a number of people. We can avoid this problem not by cleaning up, we can prevent it. Here are concrete things that you can do to help make the world a better place:
1. Produce less garbage
We’ve got a bunch of tips for reducing plastic waste here, but the biggest pieces of advice are easy: just replace plastic items with reusable or more readily biodegradable options. the 9.1 billion tons of plastic our species has created (and counting) wouldn’t exist if we didn’t use and throw away so much stuff.
2. Waste less food
Food waste is an environmental concern for a couple of reasons. For one, food takes a lot of energy to produce. When you toss some of your meal into the garbage, you’re wasting all that energy. And those little scraps add up; 2.9 trillion pounds of food (a third of what’s produced) goes into the landfill each year. The U.S. alone tosses something like 37 million tons annually.
3. Beat plastic straws
The priority thing to have a healthy environment is to remove plastic straws. Because of their size and shape, they’re basically impossible to recycle. In addition to littering our landfills, they also wind up in the ocean and can cause serious harm to marine animals. Invest in a reusable metal straw, if you must continue to suck.
4. Compost wastes
Sometimes we don’t have any other choice except pouring food out. This may happen to us specially when having guests. In this circumstance, most of what you don’t eat should get composted; that keeps it out of methane-spewing landfills, and can even provide rich fertilizer for local farms and your garden.
Clean world and the role of religions
Religious people or believers can play an important role in our world. Eight out of 10 people around the world consider themselves religious. Although, religions are not as strong as the past, but the figure shows that it still has a huge influence on us. Without doubt this is a potential for our nature due to save our planet. Believers can avoid littering much better than nonbeliever people. This is because of the Judge day and strong belief on it that force believers to treat better.
Jewish tradition teaches us to care for our planet in order to preserve that which God has created.
Psalm 24 notes, "The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof," a dramatic assertion of God's ownership of the land. It follows, then, that any act that damages our earth is an offense against the property of God. The Jewish concept of bal tashchit, "do not destroy," forbids needless destruction.
Judaism also emphasizes our need to preserve our natural resources and generate new ones for future generations. The Talmud tells the story of the sage Choni, who was walking along a road when he saw a man planting a carob tree. Choni asked, "How long will it take for this tree to bear fruit?" "Seventy years," the man replied. Choni then asked, "Are you so healthy that you expect to live that length of time and eat its fruit?" The man answered, "I found a fruitful world because my ancestors planted it for me. Likewise, I am planting for my children." In fact, tradition values this concept so much that the rabbis teach that if a man is planting a tree and the messiah appears, he should finish planting the tree before going to greet him (Avot d'Rebbe Natan 31b).
