The Earth Needs Our Help

Mother Nature is in Pain.

I know that it can be easy to ignore this because it feels uncomfortable. I’ve been there-- avoiding bad news to preserve my mental and emotional state. But, this problem isn’t going to go away on its own. The earth needs our help. If we don’t start making changes to our behavior, the damage done will be irreversible. If we continue down the road we are on, we will run out of food, energy, clean water, and breathable air. Yes, that’s terrifying.

By reading this article, you are already performing an act of bravery by informing yourself. You should be proud. Ignorance is not bliss when our lives and the lives of our children depend on us being educated and actionable.

What Exactly is Happening?

The global temperature has risen about 2.12 degrees Fahrenheit since the late 19th century largely due to the industrial revolution and the way that human society has operated since.. The ocean has absorbed this heat and it is continuing to become warmer. Ice sheets are shrinking. Glaciers are retreating. There is decreased snow cover. Sea levels are rising. There are record-high numbers of extreme weather events. Animal, human, and plant lives are being taken as a result. Many of the root causes of climate change also increase the risk of pandemics. There is so much more I can say, but you can read more here.

Scientific evidence for the warming of the climate system is unequivocal.

What Can We Do?

Ditch Plastic

I said it before and I’ll say it again-- plastic water bottles should be a thing of the past. There are SO many ways we can play a part in leaving a beautiful, clean world for our youth and this is an easy and effective solution. Reduce other plastic consumption by bringing your reusable grocery bags to the store, buy whole produce and not prepackaged products, use reusable/refillable products rather than disposables, etc.

Use sustainable water bottles and refill at your tap. Tap water should be filtered to avoid health concerns. A Kleenatap Filtration System is an affordable and effective way to do this.

Reduce Water Waste

Check your toilets, faucets, and pipes for leaks. Take shorter showers or take baths. Turn off your water while brushing your teeth, shaving, etc. There are so many ways to easily save our planet while simultaneously saving money on your water bill.

Eat Less Meat and More Plants

Industrial agriculture and factory-farmed meat are terrible for our environment. When you cut down on red meats and processed foods, you are doing your body and the world a huge favor. Instead, get your produce from local farmers who use sustainable practices. This action will help reduce emissions, decrease forestation, and protect our freshwater supply.

The Bottom Line Is…

Water is one of the most important substances on earth. All plants, humans, and animals must have water to survive. No water = no life on earth. Take care of your body, the environment, and your finances by installing a Kleenatap Water Filtration System. Kleenatap’s mission is to reduce plastic and help the ocean clean-up efforts by supporting nonprofits organizations like The OceanCleanup. We care.
