If you’re looking to make a difference in the world, start by making changes in your own life. It’s not just about recycling 6 yard dumpster—it’s also about what we do with our trash, how we drive, and how we use energy. In our opinion, the following habits are particularly detrimental to the environment:
Driving is one of the biggest contributors to environmental pollution. The more you drive, the more carbon dioxide you release into the air and the more fuel you consume. This can have devastating effects on our planet.
2. Improper disposal of battery and ink
If we don’t dispose of these properly, they can cause problems for plants and animals when they end up in landfills or oceans. We should make sure that we recycle them properly so they aren’t causing any harm to anyone or anything else!
3. Excessive use of plastic
Using too much plastic causes problems for both humans and animals because it takes a long time for it all to decompose properly which means that animals can get trapped inside or choke on it if they swallow some accidentally while scavenging around looking for food or water somewhere near where people have left behind trash.
4. Throwing food as waste
If you want to go even further with your efforts toward sustainability, consider starting a compost bin in your home or community garden so that instead of throwing away food scraps (which could include coffee grounds and eggshells), they can break down into rich soil for growing plants!
5. Using paper
It’s easy to forget that using paper takes a lot of energy, but once you start thinking about it, it becomes clear: we need trees to grow, and then we need to transport them to a mill where they can be pulped. Then comes the papermaking process, which uses more energy than any other manufacturing process in the U.S. And then there’s all the fuel needed for trucks and trains that transport goods made from paper across the country.
The Bottom Line
The above Five habits are just a few of the many bad habits that are destroying our environment. While their individual impact is relatively small, when combined, they can make a huge impact on the planet. If everyone were to play their part, we could leave a beautiful world for future generations.
