I want to be a part of something big. I like doing something for a reason, for a cause. I want to support that cause, and make a change. It might sounds too big coming from a person like me, but I believe every small step makes a difference.
I’m very concerned about how the world is changing. The weather and climate are changing, even to the extent that what’s not supposed happen,is happening like hails in my own country Singapore. There’s a lot of things I feel that needs help, and I feel that there is a need for more awareness.
I was recently inspired by the Earth Day Network, happen to saw an email that was sent and linked to a video by Jaden Smith, Will Smith’s son and in the video, he talks about The Canopy Project, how we should do our part by getting to work to help save Earth. In this project, the aim is to save the Earth by planting 10 million trees in the next 5 years.
How you can contribute?
You can contribute by taking a little bit of your time to help by taking action, pledging or supporting other similar actions.
Currently, the featured actions are to help
- support Obama’s Climate Plan,
- end Junk mails in your mail box by signing yourself up with organisations that helps to filter out these mails.
- Support new fuel standards, where its aim is to propose stricter vehicle emission and fuel standards to help reduce pollution levels and keep the air clean
Some of the acts allows you to send a message to the presidents, or to high authorities to let them know that there are people supporting these actions. The messages are also laid out there for you. What you need to do is just send.
Other acts you can also choose to do
If you happen to always receive bills through the letter box, you may choose to also see if the company has a choice of e-statement billing. Instead of you getting the bills on paper, you may opt to choose to see through online instead. This in return also help to save paper.
Support local causes to help save Earth. I used to help clean the beach and ensure the cleanliness of the beach so that’s part of protecting Mother Earth. If there’s a tree planting activity in the local area, why not join?
Support by using environmental products. There are stores that sells environmental friendly products and allows creative ways of helping you to go green.
Donate to organisations such as The Earth Day Network. If you happen to have that spare in your pocket, even $1 is helpful.
Thanks for reading and hope you may also play your part in being green !
