With how many people there are on earth, and how much we need to support so many people, it’s no wonder that it takes a heavy toll on mother earth. Here are 10 ways that we can help reduce the waste and preserve our planet.
1. Stop Using Disposable Chopsticks:
China is the largest producer of these seemingly-innocent items, producing about 80 billion disposable chopsticks annually. This means that companies cut down over 20 million trees per year just to make chopsticks! Thanks to this and other industries in China, deforestation has become a huge problem, one that can be solved if everyone decided to stop using disposable chopsticks.
2. Stop Using Birth Control:
Recent studies have shown that birth control use has actually begun to affect fish and other ocean animals ability to reproduce as well. Studies showed that estrogen can actually turn male fish female, meaning that there are no more males to help repopulate!
