Shaping our future by embracing environmentally friendly lifestyle manners should turn into our common goal. Self-awareness is the very first step that needs to be undertaken. Environmentally-conscious society is a society which takes care of its resources. We need to promote consecutive educational campaigns by focusing on reduce of waste so that people could become aware of the importance of recycling. By clearly understanding the negative impact of the plastic products that they reach out for on a daily basis, they might want to reconsider daily habits which are in apparent detriment of our planet. There should be further investments on campaigns focused on environmentally friendly causes, mainly executed by young people. A young person’s enthusiasm is quite contagious. Their actions are usually inspired by pure conviction of a better and thriving society which requires responsibility and significant efforts.
Fostering usage of homegrown food and consuming less meet is another possibility that enhances both our lifestyles and at the same time it preserves our nature healthy. Banning plastic cutlery at fast-food restaurants by replacing them with sustainable alternatives is a must. A key word of our plan should be alternative. The next time I grab a cotton bud, I shall know that I have an alternative that might not only guarantee sustainable development of the world I live in, but it also may turn out to be the healthier option for me as an individual. We must build a bridge between our own needs and those of our common home.
