The earth after human vanish

The world can live without us, but we cannot live without the earth.

I remembered some of the Earth Hour discussion. Some people feedback are supportive. Some people doubt about the effectiveness of it, and not joining the event. Well, no matter what opinion do you hold, what have you done to keep our earth long life?

Well, as an individual, there are lots of things we can do to love our earth. Here are what I did, please feel free to add your practice or comment after mine :)

1. Switch off (Not putting into standby mode, but total switch off or unplug) electricity appliances when not in used.

2. Switch off lights when not in used. There were comment often switch on and off will consume more electricity, this maybe is true, but when we are leaving the room/kitchen/house for long, if we can just switch it off, including the fan and air cond :)

3. 3R: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Reduce garbage. Don't buy things that you do not need. The world is producing more than enough now, because a lot of excessive buying and trash operation. Reuse things that is reusable.

4. Don't waste food. How frequent you have to throw away vegetables/food from your fridge?

5. Reduce meat. Feeding an animal requires a lot of vegetable and produces a lot of waste. Google for Reason to reduce meat for more information.

6. If possible, make some garbage enzyme using vegetable/fruit waste.

7. Car-pool, use public transport if possible, or walk if possible. Reduce car driving and CO2 emission.

8. Reduce air conditioner usage if possible, or tune up few degree.

9. Plant more tree :)
