Ways to Save Our Planet
|Rain Water Harvesting||Solar Energy|
|Organic Farm||Use cloth or paper bags instead of plastic|
|Bio Gas Plant where in we use Cow Dung.The waste is also used in the organic farm||Plant trees as it increases the Oxygen in the atmosphere|
Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Space
These are the five universal elements that nature has been formed from.
The word WATER itself is life and we cannot stay without it at any cost. Pujya Gurudev(Shankaracharya Swami Swaroopanand Sarasvati ji Maharaj) says from now on famine will not come from above but from beneath the earth.
According to Gurudev Water, Sun and Air has been given to us free of cost. He says Human beings must start using these sources of energy rather than use the water from our rivers to generate energy.
River Narmada is suffering because the dam built over her to generate energy is causing a lot of problems for the fish, worms, who live in the river and as water does not flow they die.
Sun gives us energy and we must tap these sources for energy and soon Solar Energy will be used in every walk of life.
Air can also be used in the form of wind mills to generate energy.
We as humans have forgotten how to respect and use water carefully. Living in Australia has made us aware that water is a valuable commodity we have to treasure as there is not much left of it. In Australia we use timers for our bath, plants are watered only before 8am and after 8pm as the moisture remains in the earth rather than use sprinklers in the afternoon when evaporation is at its maximum. Farmers I have seen while travelling to and fro from Jabalpur and Shri Dham use sprinklers in the afternoon in their farms. Due to the heat evaporation takes place at a high level and the crops do not benefit at all. Most of the water is lost in the heat.
We must be aware to save water in every which way we can.
Plant a Notion
“Going green” doesn’t have to be a daunting task that means sweeping life changes. Simple things can make a difference.
The contents of this list might not be new, but they bear repeating. Sometimes it takes a few reminders for things take root.
- Change Your Light
If every household in the world replaced one regular lightbulb with one of those new compact fluorescent bulbs, the pollution reduction would be equivalent to removing one million cars from the road.
Don’t like the color of light? Use these bulbs for closets, laundry rooms and other places where it won’t irk you as much.
- Turn Off Computers At Night
By turning off your computer instead of leaving it in sleep mode, you can save 40 watt-hours per day.
- Don’t Rinse
Skip rinsing dishes before using your dishwasher and save up to approx. 75 liters of water each load. Plus, you’re saving time and the energy used to heat the additional water.
- Do Not Pre-Heat The Oven
Unless you are making bread or pastries of some sort, don’t pre-heat the oven. Just turn it on when you put the dish in. Also, when checking on your food, look through the oven window instead of opening the door.
- Recycle Glass
Recycled glass reduces related air pollution by 20 percent and related water pollution by 50 percent. If it isn’t recycled it can take a million years to decompose.
- Diaper With A Conscience
By the time a child is toilet trained, a parent will change between 5,000 and 8,000 diapers. Whether you choose cloth or a more environmentally-friendly disposable, you’re making a choice that has a much gentler impact on our planet.
- Hang Dry
Get a clothesline or rack to dry your clothes by the air. Your wardrobe will maintain color and fit, and you’ll save money.
Your favorite t-shirt will last longer too.
- Go Vegetarian Always
Having vegetarian meal helps the planet and your diet.
- Wash In Cold Or Warm
If all the households switched from hot-hot cycle to warm-cold, we could save the energy comparable to approx. 1,58,98,730 Liters of oil a day.
Only launder when you have a full load.
- Use One Less Paper Napkin
If everyone used one less napkin a day, more than a crore of napkins could be saved from landfills each year, there by saving crores of rupees.
- Use Both Sides Of Paper
Set your printer’s default option to print double-sided (duplex printing). And when you’re finished with your documents, don’t forget to take them to the recycling bin.
- Recycle Newspaper
Large amount of paper goes in printing newspapers each day. Of these, many of them will be thrown away. Recycling just the Sunday papers would save more than half a million trees every week.
- Wrap Creatively
You can reuse gift bags, bows and event paper, but you can also make something unique by using old maps, cloth or even newspaper. Flip a paper grocery bag inside out and give your child stamps or markers to create their own wrapping paper that’s environmentally friendly and extra special for the recipient.
- Rethink Bottled Water
Nearly 90% of plastic water bottles are not recycled, instead taking thousands of years to decompose. Buy a reusable container and fill it with tap water, a great choice for the environment, your wallet, and possibly your health.
- Brush Without Running Water
You’ve heard this one before, but maybe you still do it. You’ll conserve good amount of water per day if you stop.
- Take A Shorter Bath
Every two minutes you save on your bath can conserve more than approx. 40 liters of water. If everyone in the country saved just 4 liters from their daily bath, over the course of the year it would equal twice the amount of freshwater withdrawn from the lakes every day.
- Plant A Tree
It’s good for the air, the land, can shade your house and save on cooling (plant on the west side of your home), and they can also improve the value of your property.
Make it meaningful for the whole family and plant a tree every year for each member.
