Environment – How Can You Help Protect It?
Our planet is changing. We need to help it change for the better and we are asking for your help to do that! There are lots of issues that affect our planet and its life forms in a bad way, and everyone can help to do their bit to protect our environment.
Pollution is caused when harmful or poisonous substances are released or find their way into the air, rivers, seas, forests, earth and are injected by animals, plants or even in our bodies. Let us together protect our planet.
How to Help:
- Don’t drop litter. Birds and animals can mistake litter for food. Litter and chemicals find their way into the substrata and affects plants that are eaten by animals. Litter can end up in drains and find its way into rivers and seas to be
- Cleaning Products. Many household cleaning products contain harmful chemicals which are washed down the drain. Encourage your friends to buy eco-friendly products or even make your own from natural substances like vinegar and lemon juice. We at HCAW have stopped using detergeant products in our laundry, and use concentrated vinegar instead.
Thinking more about what we waste and discard helps us protect the environment and its animals.
How to Help:
- Stop using plastic bags. Plastic Bags find their way to our countryside and are chemically indissoluble. Not only do they pollute the environment visually, but they are absorbed by grazing animals, and end up in their intestines with life threatening conditions.
- Collect refuse following picnics. Plastic cups and glass cause direct injury to animal life, and consequent loss of productivity to their owners. Discarded string and ropes are also ingested by grazing animals, and these together with other waste products can cause death to animals, and consequent hardship to those whose livelihood is dependent on their working and productive animals.
- Grazing fields should not become rubbish dumps, but should be preserved for the animals for which they are their natural means of feed and nourishment.
