How to Help Your Corner of the Planet
President Donald Trump vision of America did not actualize with the Paris Climate Agreement. He has started the leaving process which has left many questions unanswered about America’s proposed actions for the environment. Still, there is pretty much that needs to get done in the country and away. There are various seemingly small projects that each one can take that could add up to a huge difference. The the question is: What can you do for your local area?
Taking Care of Bees
Bees have a great role play in the balance of the ecosystem. It is the bees that pollinate the flowers. It may seem a scary proposition to attract bees to your garden, but when you think about it, bees hardly harm you. It is not a bad idea to add a few hives in your garden and train to become a beekeeper. Even if you don’t have much space in your garden, you can always use potted plants that attract the bees.
Other types of Insects
Other insects play an important role to your local natural habitat too. Many of these insects provide sufficient food source for the local birds and other wildlife that might visit your garden. Improve the area for the insects by keeping it green. Instead of paving it and making it a low-maintenance garden, you can let it grow a little wild. The insects and birds love it, and your local community will greatly benefit from the beautiful birdsong it will attract. Having a lawn makes this achievable.
The value of the hedges is always underrated. Hedges do provide homes for the small mammals, insects, birds, and some even provide you with fruits, berries, and nuts to eat. The the main objective for growing bushes around a property is to keep the air clean.
Clean it Up
If you leave everything at the hands of your local authority; there is no chance that they will take care of everything all the time. Obviously, you pay the taxes and do your part by using the litter bins but still you will find a lot of litter blown in the parks and streets. It doesn’t harm to volunteer for a couple of hours to cleanup and everyone can enjoy a better and safer environment.
Take a Day Off
If you commute daily to work in your vehicle, will your boss be ready to give you a day to work from home? Think of the many ways that you can give your car a day off and be able to save a fortune. You can choose to share cars with others, or walk to the shopping mall instead of driving or even use public transport or cycle.
