Climate change, global warming, the environment – these are the most pressing issues facing the world today. The environmental impact that consumer goods, manufacturing and packaging have placed on the planet is enormous. In fact, it’s almost at the point of no return: if we don’t do something drastic to alter our behavior and change the way we treat the Earth, we may damage it beyond reach.
And that’s why going green is such an important environmental and social cause: because the planet depends on it. By “thinking globally and acting locally”, you’re doing your small part to be eco-friendly and to give Mother Nature a hand. Recycled paper means trees don’t have to be cut down to make new paper. Turning off all the lights when you leave home reduces harmful CO2 emissions. Using rechargeable batteries eliminates the need to throw away nickel-cadmium batteries into sensitive landfills. These are all small steps that you can take to go green and save the planet!
Everybody needs to go green, but it can only happen one person at a time – starting with you!
