Can you save our world from global warming?
Sure, the phrase that “not all heroes wear capes” rings true. Time and time again, we see a layman go above and beyond their means in order to help someone or something else. And while this might seem like a pretty bold and even daunting task for most of us, what you may not realize is that not all heroes need to do traditional “hero” things to become heroes.
Take for instance, individuals who are more uncomfortable and happier observing life from behind the scenes (or even screens). Introverts who cringe at the thought of “getting out there and doing something” or “being part of the change.” Even the idea of participation can be a turnoff for some.
But just because you feel this way doesn’t mean that your only other choice is to sit by idly and watch things fall apart. When it comes to contributing to the cause for helping to improve and save our world (environment), there are actually a ton of things you can easily do.
How To Save Our World & Our Future, One Action At A Time
As the infographic below by WeAreTop10 illustrates, you definitely don’t have to don a cape to help out. Or even pants for that matter (in some cases only!). You can partake in the fight wherever you are and wherever you go, from your home to your workplace. And in most cases, you don’t even have to talk to anyone else or lift a finger too high. You can save our world by planting a seed of activities with intent to save our future.
From behind your computer screen in your living room, you can save paper (and more importantly, trees) by signing up for paperless billing and statements. Or you can just turn off or down the lights, you probably don’t need that many on anyways if you are only surfing the web or binge-watching. And if you do have to have the lights on, make sure you are using the energy-efficient light bulbs to save our world. Global warming can be averted if we could all decide, and agree to obey some of the basic rules and guidelines for healthy living in 21st century.
From behind the opening to the washing machine in your laundry room, you can save energy by hanging your clothes to dry instead of using the dryer. Or try going meatless every once in a while; the process to manufacture plants uses a great deal less energy. And your tummy will like all the veggies.
From behind the steering wheel of your car, you can cut back on pollution by keeping up with its maintenance. Or get yourself a reusable coffee cup to reduce your plastic and paper cup waste. Same goes for water bottles; don’t let your car fill up with them when all you need is one reusable container.
From behind your cubicle at work, you can start a recycling program for the office. Or adjust the temperature a bit; that little adjustment to the A/C can go a very long way. And who is going to notice such a small change, anyway?
Getting out there and doing something and being part of the change doesn’t literally mean you have to go anywhere you don’t want or participate in anything that makes you uncomfortable. Saving the world can be as easy as you need it to be.
