Fair to Planet Earth
How can we save the planet? It’s a big problem and you often hear about it. There are various easy ways which can be helpful in saving the earth. Earth is the only known planet of the solar system having life. In the ancient time, people were not involved in any type of destructive work, so there was no any fear of pollution and other environmental issues. After explosion in the population, people started developing cities and industries for the modern lifestyle and easy life for everyone. People learned misusing the natural resources beyond the limit and were involved in deforestation which resulted in extinction of various wild animals, pollution, and global warming. Due to the global warming the protective ozone layer got a hole, there was a rise in sea level, the ice caps of Antarctica and Greenland melted and other negative changes occurred. Such types of environmental changes are alarming to us.
Why is being fair to our planet necessary? In order to save the earth, we must understand that the resources that are provided by our planet are limited. However, the majority of us are unaware of this fact and we are not judiciously utilizing the resources. In order to safeguard the existence of humans, we need to protect the earth and take care of it. All living beings are dependent on the earth for their survival and so we should use the gist of nature in a thoughtful way. The increase in pollution and damage caused by humans is affecting the earth so rapidly that it is threatening our survival.

We should use Compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) instead of common bulbs as they are more durable and use two-third less energy.
We should not use an electric heater or air conditioner unnecessarily.
We should maintain our private transport and drive smartly in order to reduce pollution.
We should switch off lights, fans and unplug other electric appliances when we’re not using them.
