Global Warning, Pollution, Climate Change, Greenhouse Effect are the terms familiar to us in relation to our environment and society today; worse yet is the fact that we are responsible for these disasters. As we all know, we do not have centuries to go anymore. Scientists around the globe are already complaining about the effect of global warming and the uns table environment that we all have nowadays.
If we don’t change the way we live and the way we use the environment, our future or the future of our planet will be disastrous. You may well think that protecting the environment is a responsibility of the government or the people with higher authorities. Yes, I agree. But, instead of waiting for government rules, or proper management systems, we can change little things we do day-to-day and start protecting our environment on our own. Every little thing we do matters a lot when put together. So, the question; What little things can we do to make a difference?
