What does it mean to "go green"?

What does it mean to

To go green doesn’t involve just recycling. Going green is so much more than that. Simply put, to go green means to adjust your life in such a way that is not harmful to the environment. The way you live will determine your contribution to all the natural resources of Earth like water, soil, air, and other natural resources.

The objective is to leave a legacy for the next generation so they can appreciate and enjoy what we have enjoyed on this planet. Going green is a very broad subject so, to keep it simple, here are four guiding principles:

  1. Reduce pollution or don’t cause pollution – of any kind. Even simple everyday habits such as using shampoo and chemically enhanced detergents are very harmful to the water and soil. The chemicals go into the water and can harm creatures living in water or depending on water to live. The same water going into soils can pollute and harm the vegetation that grows and which living creatures depend on to survive.
  2. Conserve resources – It’s so easy to buy new things and discard the old, which eventually fills the landfills, again polluting the environment and creating a lot of waste. Try to recycle whenever and whatever you can. There are recycling depots for almost everything we discard.
  3. Conserve Energy- Energy costs a lot to create energy using natural resources like coal, wind, and solar but no one can say it will last forever. The best way is to conserve what you have. Use less energy so we save more.
  4. Reduce waste – Try buying in bulk. This reduces the amount of plastic that ends up in landfills.
