Water and air pollution, reduced fertile land, ozone depletion and other environmental problems cannot be tackled alone. But an individual person can and must take good care of nature. To preserve the world around you, adhere to the principle of personal responsibility.
Do not litter in parks and forests, leave less traces of your stay. If everyone throws bottles, bags, etc. after relaxing in nature, the planet will quickly be covered with debris. When traveling long distances by land or water transport, do not throw plastic glasses, paper, etc. outside the window. Collect unnecessary items in one bag, and then throw them away in designated places where the garbage is taken out.
Feed birds and animals during harsh winters or droughts when they may die. Make feeders - this way you save part of the animal world.
Do not take too much from nature. If you pick mushrooms or berries, act so that after a year they grow back in this place. Unfortunately, inventive people come up with devices for fast forest harvesting. At the same time, the roots of plants are damaged.
Do not make noise in the forests, do not disturb the natural balance. When going outdoors, be more of a listener than a witty speaker. Maybe the company wants to show oneself, and for this to make more noise. Imagine that you are a guest, and animals and birds are the owners of the territory. Do not scare them with music, shouts, unnecessary shots.
Conserve natural resources, do not waste them thoughtlessly. Change habits that harm others - for example, refuse to put a live Christmas tree at home for the New Year. If many do this, demand will decrease, then there will be no supply on the market.
Replenish what was previously spent by someone else - plant trees, clear water bodies, etc.
Prevent possible disturbances in nature - for example, plant trees along the banks of small ravines so that the latter do not expand.
Learn to handle objects that can be dangerous to nature with care. These include fire sources, oily liquids, etc. You must know how to deal with adverse events.
Join public associations for the protection of the environment, then you will be able to participate in public events, and your contribution will be strengthened by common efforts.
Teach children the principles of careful handling of nature. This way you will take care not only of the present, but also of the future.
