José Simón Elarba: Our planet is the place where we live, so it is our duty to protect it and keep it clean in order to have a wonderful stay. Are you the kind of person who does not think about the planet? Do you unplug your computer or cell charger when not in use? Do you recycle bottles and cans at home? Do you reuse plastic bags or take a reusable cloth bag when you go shopping? Do you use fans instead of air conditioner? Do you turn the faucet off while brushing your teeth? Do you use energy-efficient light bulbs in your house or office? Does your house or apartment building have a solar heating system? Do you use refillable bottles for water at home? Do you use Styrofoam cups at work or home? Do you separate organic and non-organic household waste?
Yes, we know that there are too many questions, but it is important to answer them in order to put in practice our “green personality”. Here are some tips to help our planet:
- Do not leave appliances on stand-by mode.
- Recycle bottles and cans.
- Instead of using plastic bags, choose reusable cloth bags.
- Fans are more nature-friendly than AC.
- Turn off the faucet when brushing your teeth.
- Use energy-efficient light bulbs.
- Separate organic and non-organic household waste.
So according to the article here you are the meaning of being Green: “Green” is more than just a color. It also means taking special steps to protect the environment — the water, the land, and the air we breathe. Why green? Plants are green, and without them the Earth wouldn’t be such a lovely home for us human beings.”
It is important that you can take into account how your lifestyle affects the environment and what can be done to reduce the damages to nature.
