Do you care about the environment? Do you give attention to your surroundings? Are you keen in throwing your waste? Do you obey anti-littering law? Many of us are not environmentally aware of our surroundings. One of the reasons is we do not really see the effects of our actions. But the only time we realize it is if something bad happen and we are one of the victims. Now, I would say, how can we become environmentally aware of our surroundings? The answer to this is very obvious but the only problem is our attitude towards the environment. If you care for your health, one of the things that you can do is to become aware with your environment. How will an individual do that? First, you need to develop a habit of caring with your surroundings. Your surroundings and your environment could actually affect your health. If you have a dirty environment the air and water will be polluted which is bad for the health.
Caring for your environment starts in your own home. If every home owner is concerned and conscious with their environment, everything will go smoothly and they would enjoy a clean and healthy environment. Like for example, you can actually plant trees in your backyard if possible. Trees provide shades, fresh air, cool environment, and also adds green to the surroundings. Second, you need to know how to properly segregate and dispose your garbage. Many people are not practicing segregation in disposing their garbage. You need to separate biodegradable to non-biodegradable. Third, do not litter. I am thankful that in so many places, there is a anti-littering law and they are strictly implemented but there are also places that people do not really care when it comes to littering. Littering could hurt the environment. Could you imagine how much trash people throw every day? If those trashes accumulate it will become pile of garbage and it could also clog inside the drainage.
Fourth, learn to conserve water. In some places, they are suffering from water crisis. It’s not that easy to live with limited source of water. Water is part of basic needs for cooking, washing, drinking, watering the plants, shower, and so on… Now you see that there are so many things that we can do to become environmentally aware of our surroundings. There are many more things that we can do as an individual to care for our environment.
