Our planet is in trouble. The amount of trouble varies by the day and the agency offering up the latest report, but at any given moment, we are adding serious amounts of pollution to the air, using up precious naturally resources, and contributing to global warming. Used a hair dryer today? Turned on a light? Rode in a car? You’ve contributed to the problem. And with a problem this big, is there really a solution? Many experts tell us there is.

Going Green

Increasingly you hear more about the nation and the planet going green. This means individuals are refocusing attention on how to do what we need to do while protecting the planet. Need to drive a car to school? Get one that is solar powered or a hybrid that gets four times as many miles to the gallon. Need to use your flat iron? Plug it into a home fueled by wind or solar energy.

Car engines are beginning to see modifications to be more environmentally friendly. And consumers are picking up their end of the slack by worrying a bit more about gas mileage and energy output when buying those vehicles. You can’t fix the spreading hole in the ozone layer by yourself. But if you go green along with several million of your closest friends, we just might start getting somewhere.

Ways to Go Green

Need some help getting started on your new green campaign? Here are a few ideas to get you pointed in the right direction.

Buy Local Produce and Meat – By buying organic food at a farmer’s market or small neighborhood grocery, you’re supporting your own community. You’ll also be not supporting the major growers who use enough chemicals, pesticides, and other nasty stuff to pollute local water ways and kill entire ecosystems. You’ll also not be supporting farms that were created by clear cutting and burning large sections of forest.

Plant a Tree or Ten – Plants clean the air, so get started gardening. Find plants and trees that suit your personality and your gardening abilities, and plant them in your backyard. Or, buy plants on sale and go and plant them for elderly neighbors or your own grandparents. Not only will you be helping to clean the polluted air, you’ll be spending time in a meaningful way as well.

Use Those Funny Light bulbs – You’ve seen them. When you use those florescent light bulbs that twist and turn, you’ll be saving money, but more importantly you’ll be helping to conserve energy. Considering most of our energy comes from fossil fuels such as coal, natural gas or oil products, this can be a significant savings. And turning off the lights and fan when you’re not in the room is yet another way to save some energy.

Spread the Word – Be sure you’re letting others know about the problem with the environment and helping them find ways to help. There are thousands of ways to help protect and hopefully save our world, but if those ideas are going to work, we all need to be on board with changes for the better – even if they hurt a bit in the meantime.

Maddie705 if you're going to say something like that then go away.

I like this article. I agree we should totally, use less energy. A good way to do it, if you don't have any other ideas, rarely use hair dryers, curlers, straighteners, and also, don't turn on a bunch of lights all the time..... If we use it wisely, there should be enough fuel to spare!
