Environment is a place where humans as well as plants and animals live. Keeping it clean and neat is our responsibility. It is necessary to keep our environment clean because we get fresh air, reduce pollution etc. An unclean environment leads to a bad condition of a society, arrival of diseases and many more.
With the ever increasing use of technology and industries flourishing the amount of pollution in our environment is increasing at a rapid pace. Keeping our environment clean is a very important part of our lives in these days. It is important to focus on this as we have to make sure that the environment is preserved for future generations. Water pollution and litter are considered to be two of the main cause of the environment being dirty.
People most of the times throw litter and dust on the footpaths and roads instead of throwing it in dustbins. This is how slowly the litter accumulates and transforms into huge garbage. If this garbage is not cleaned, further it smells stink and welcomes the diseases and then people are affected by it. Thus, if we don’t keep our environment clean there would be many consequences or problems which will be faced by the society and people that live in that environment.
These are some ways in which we can keep our environment clean:-
*Don’t litter: Please don’t litter in your society and roads. Set a good example. Use dust bins, it will help in keeping the society clean. If society is plagued by litter then consult with your society members and other authorities in order to organize an awareness camp. Work with them and volunteers to clean the litters.
*Plant trees: We should plant trees in your society or we can also adapt any tree and take care of that. Trees will help in controlling the pollution at least a little bit. Having lots of trees in your society will help you have fresh air for you and your kids, maintain good health, and with a beautiful green society you can inspire others to follow the track and save the city and environment.
*Be eco-friendly: Restore water, use eco-friendly things, do not dump electronic gadgets etc. Be eco-friendly by using bicycle instead of cars that makes a lot of noise and increases pollution.
*Recycle plastic materials: Don’t just throw away the plastic bottles or plates that you have used, but instead use them and recycle it for the betterment of the environment. Plastic takes years to decompose and is hazardous If the plastics are burnt or thrown away. So, recycle plastics.
So, we should keep our environment clean and green for a smell-free, disease-free live. By implementing on it we can reduce pollution, get fresh air, live peaceful life without any problems.
So, are you all from now going to keep your environment/surroundings clean?
How do we keep Brunei Darussalam clean?
To keep our country clean, firstly we must practice good habits to keep our environment clean. A good example is we ourselves need to be clean and healthy. Then, our home and garden need to be clean and we must maintain them regularly. Once we know how to keep ourselves and homes clean, then we are able to appreciate the whole environment and do our best to keep it clean.
We need a clean environment, free of pollutants in the air, water and land. This is because we need clean air to breathe in, safe drinking water and a safe place to live in. It is not only us but other living creatures need to have a clean environment too. For example, sea creatures like fish and turtles will live much longer if there is no pollution in the sea water.
The concept of 3R’s, “reduce, reuse, and recycle” is very important to have a clean environment. Reduce means using fewer resources in the first place. When we shop, we look for things that will last, things that are not just durable and well-made, but useful and beautiful enough to please us for a long time. Before recycling or disposing of anything, we need to consider whether we still can use it. A jam jar can store leftovers. Food scraps can become compost.
Each of us can make a difference in protecting our environment and keeping our country clean. If we all do our bit in looking after the environment we will live in a better place.
