As the world grows older, generations after generations will come and go. What will this aging Earth be offering to our children? All the natural resources are exhausting and we are facing ecological imbalances and climatic havoc. So, what will future generations experience?
How often do we sit back and think about what impacts will our present actions have on future generations?
We always say that the right time to begin is ‘NOW,’ but do we at all practice what we preach?
For example, a top carbon sequestration company can quickly develop practical solutions to help this ailing planet.
Therefore, through this blog, we aim to propagate all those effective ways which can be instrumental in creating a better world for future generations. Read this blog, and if you would like to add a point or two to this list, leave a comment in the comment box below.
What can we do for our upcoming generations?
Each effort counts. Thus, we must play our crucial parts today.
The excessive purchase and consumption of everyday needs indirectly contribute to the degradation of our planet. When the different industries and factories manufacture and produce items of daily needs, they emit many carbon particles into the air. If you want to stop the mixing of carbon into the fresh air of the atmosphere, you must start with a small step today. If you have an excess of anything, begin by donating them to those who need those items. When you do this, you reduce the need to buy more, and in doing so, the production also reduces. As a result, factory machines also reduce their carbon and heat emissions. Moreover, you must also donate to all those funds that go into this planet’s healing.
- Reuse, recycle, repurpose
If you do not believe in donating, then reuse whatever you can. For example, using old denim jeans and turning them into carrying bags is a popular way of reusing and repurposing old clothes. Just as we have stated in the previous point, how production leads to environmental harm, you can try to reuse, recycle and repurpose your items of basic needs. Another widespread way of reusing is repurposing water. Suppose you have used a bucket full of water to wash clothes, and you can use the same water to wash your driveway; that way, you get two uses out of the same bucket of water.
- Use less plastic
It goes wholly unsaid how plastic is harmful to our environment. Plastic not only takes years and years to decompose but also pollutes our environment and chokes animals. Therefore, we need to ensure that we reduce the use of plastic. For example, polythene bags create huge environmental hazards when disposed of here and there. If we can incorporate the use of cotton bags, then we can solve this problem quickly. On the other hand, plastic stationery items, water bottles, containers, etc., must abide by the set environmental standards.
Using plastic items of inferior quality is highly dangerous. If you cannot do away entirely with plastic, we suggest you use plastic items that are of good quality and can be used time and again. An excellent alternative to plastic bottles that we can take to is using glass bottles that are good for our environment and health.
- Drive less, walk more
The more cars and vehicles we have on the road, the more polluted this planet will be. The easiest way out for this problem is to take the battery or electricity-driven vehicles. But this may not be a convenient option for every one of us, so driving less often can be a great alternative. If you are too comfortable riding or driving to cover a short distance, you can do so by walking. Walking reduces the unnecessary use of vehicles and carbon emissions into the air and promotes good health. Therefore, if we can genuinely reduce the need to ride and drive unnecessarily, we will be creating a healthier world for future generations. This world will also have less amount of carbon filling up the atmosphere and fewer harmful impacts on the environment.
- Save our flora and fauna
Flora and the fauna, along with humankind, create the ecological cycle. Single destruction at any point creates an imbalance in this cycle. We need to understand quite closely how we are dependent on our forests and how the animals also contribute to making this world a better place. For example, the phytoplankton found in the ocean waters produces a tremendous amount of oxygen into our atmosphere through photosynthesis which is enough for us to understand that each creature needs the other. Therefore, if we do not prevent deforestation or poaching of animals, we will not be in a good place to leave behind a good world for our upcoming generations.
The forests are a natural factory of medicines and oxygen. The world has recently witnessed massive deforestation in the Amazon River Basin and the severe consequences we are presently facing. But if we do not act now and prevent such deforestation in the future, not only we but the children of the future will meet with an ill fate.
Once-based Climate Solutions Inc. has been pioneering the art of using negative emissions technologies. They are designing a pump that can sequester the dissolved carbon dioxide from the ocean waters, which aids the rapid growth of phytoplankton, emitting fresh oxygen through photosynthesis.
