If planet Earth exists, we exist.
As per LOHAS (Lifestyles Of Health & Sustainability), “sustainable living is today’s requirement and not a choice”.
More and more people believe that if we continue in our current methodology when it comes to development, then we who live on the earth will need at least two more planets to supply the resources needed to sustain life. First of all, we do not have two other planets to draw from. The crux of the problem lies in the fact that 80 percent of the world’s resources are used by 20 percent of the people.
Aside from that, there are the ecological issues to consider, too. Humans are developing the world so fast that we lose up to 137 species daily in just the tropical rain forests. Its mind boggling to think of what the effects of this development means to our future across the board.
This just gives us a glimpse at the importance of green living.
We have all been exploiting nature injudiciously, be it consciously or unconsciously. Maybe we will be able to spend our entire life in the cool, peaceful lap of mother nature but it may not be the same for our next generations to come.
Mother Earth gives us all we need. Take a dip in this ecstatic thought and taste the nectar of happiness. But have we ever thought if we have any share of responsibilities towards our planet? Yes, we do need to reciprocate, to take care, to nurture the Earth, for all that we have gained from her, to make her eternal for all the generations to come…
Let us ask ourselves the questions:
“What are we going to leave to future generations”?
What good is technology if there isn’t enough power to operate it?
These will make us realize that it is high time to make changes for the future now, by putting sustainable development in place and making low-impact green living a reality. Let us not take our planet Earth for granted and start today. We need to preserve all the precious natural resources such as water, breathable air, trees, fuel, etc to name a few.
