It's no secret that our planet is caught in a constant struggle with the somewhat destructive tendencies of humans. Centuries of unsustainable practices have had detrimental effects on our air and water, and global temperatures have, as a general rule, risen from where they should be. My question is, how do each of you combat any negative footprint you may leave? It doesn't have to be anything major or drastic, like chaining yourself to a tree in the rainforest to stop a logger. One of the easiest everyday things I do is recycle those goods that my city accepts. This includes glass, metal, plastic, and paper products. I know that not every city has a large recycling system, but it's still important to see these materials get a second life rather than filling up a landfill. A weekly or monthly trip to a center that accepts these goods for recycling could make a great difference in how much trash ends up in landfills. Another good way to help is picking up trash from areas, especially beaches or the banks of creeks and rivers. This helps divert waste to more proper facilities for processing and keeps trash from being consumed by wildlife that may be harmed by it. What steps have you taken?
