When it comes to helping the Australian environment, the good news is that there is a simple and easy way that you can help. Following the reduce, reuse, and recycle pattern, you can effectively help make Australia a better place for generations to come.
While these three words are simple to read and say, when it comes to following them it’s usually another story entirely for most Aussies. Because of that, here is a way to make sure that these three words become more than just words.
Why a Greener Australia?
Before we get to the ways we can make Australia better when it comes to the environment, we first need to look at why this is important. Without biological diversity, all of Australia becomes less useful. Problems with salinisation may become a problem. Also, loss of farmable land for other reasons is possible as well. As the world becomes more populated, it is crucial that Australia maintains the ability to feed Aussies as well as a percentage of the world’s population elsewhere.
What is the Easiest Method?
Now that you can see why a green Australia is so important, we can take a quick look at the ways we can achieve this.
Reduce – The first and most important step we can all take as Aussies is to reduce the amount of materials we consume and throw away on a daily basis.
Reuse – To help reduce what is thrown away, try to reuse as much as possible. Shy away from materials that aren’t reused in some way.
Recycle – Along with reusing things, it is important to recycle as much as possible. This is a personal decision that everyone must make – that recycling is important and will be done on a weekly basis.
Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle for Australia’s Future
This may sound like it is too simple to work, but that is part of the brilliance of the plan to make Australia a greener place. It is simple, but if enough of us work together and do our part, Australia has a good chance of repairing some of the damage we have done to the environment over the last few hundred years. This may not be important to you now, but if you value Australia for future generations, reduce, reuse, recycle should be a way of life for you. Not only that, you should be spreading word about this system to everyone you know, letting them in on why it’s so important for everyone in Australia.
