Keeping the environment clean should be our obligation in our daily activities.
A healthy and clean environment will be the benchmark for a society, the more people are aware of this, the standard of living and public health will increase
The values of cleanliness have generally been learned since elementary school, simple things such as not littering is one of the attitudes that need to be maintained
So, what about other steps in maintaining a clean environment that may escape our daily attention?
Minimize the use of single-use items
The easiest first step to keep the environment clean is to minimize the use of single-use items such as shopping plastic, drink bottles, etc.
We can almost never refuse the use of plastic, but we can still minimize its use by starting to implement a minimal plastic lifestyle.
Using a multifunctional shopping bag, bring your own tumbler and cutlery are easy steps to get started.
Buy local groceries, eat more vegetables and recycle leftovers
When shopping for food needs, buy groceries at the local market instead of buying packaged and imported foodstuffs.
Buying food locally has also reduced aspects of the use of transportation (because it is local), the manufacturing process and packaging of these materials.
Eating vegetables and reducing meat consumption has health benefits and is also good for the environment.
Minimizing meat consumption is the same as reducing the gas produced from greenhouses where processed meat factories are located.
In addition, you can recycle leftover vegetables into compost. You can use this fertilizer to grow your own plants at home.
Start planting a variety of plants
Farming can be a fun activity, you can start planting your own trees at home or take care of your own ornamental plants at home for better air circulation.
