There are a lot of changes that have happened throughout the years and it is evidenced by our gadgets and everyday living. It has its own advantages and good, but it is not always the case. Because of these changes, it not only affects us but also the environment. With all the wastes and radiation, it is a risk.

It is because of that many form advocates for the care of the planet. Some would have agreed while some do not really care.

Good for You

Planet earth is our home. One of the things you should do for your home is to maintain it. It is one of your responsibilities. The reason for that is because it is for your own good. Why and how?

1. Less Health Risk

Imagine trees being gone or bodies of water filled with trash and oil. It will surely be a disaster. The air is dirty and poisonous to breathe in. There will be less clean water. If there was, it will be hard to find. it will also surely be cleansed by chemicals that are doubtful to be safe. It is because of these factors that new diseases have been born or simple diseases is now hard to be cured. Another is that when our planet is polluted, it will be a lot harder to produce crops. Animals will also be affected because they will have no food. That will be the same for us too. The food will be limited because there will be no crops or animals to have. Medicine will also be affected by the lack of sources which will be a risk for those who are sick.

2. Less Expensive

This is connected to what is mentioned above. If the supplies which are the food, water, and resources will be limited, it will surely make things more expensive. Keep in mind that these are our basic needs. How bad can it be if that will be hard to get? 

Good for the Future

If we are suffering now, imagine how could it be for future generations? Not only it will be lacking, but some will also surely be extinct or endangered. Because of that, many will be experiencing a lack of basic needs. Production is not only the one that will be affected but also the research and potential discoveries that should be helpful for innovation and cure for some diseases. Instead of that, it could go worse with the development of new diseases or famine.

Now that we know the importance of keeping the planet healthy, it is the time to start. It does not have to grand. You can start on small steps like not using plastic and recycling materials. You can also search for advocates that will help you learn more about the causes and what you can do. This will also help you to be educated and share with your friends and family.
