The nature will always find ways to fight back to protect herself from destructive human activities, let us not wait for that to come...

It is now the high time to do our own share in protecting Earth and her wonderful creatures.

Our planet is indeed gasping for breath right now, our harmful pollution is indeed choking her slowly and continues to strip off her ozone layer. I think it is about time to give our response to this alarming state of the only planet we live in, by doing our own share of protecting her with doing simple things that will surely stir big difference. For if not, we might be harming ourselves in the years ahead as well, for nature has its own destructive ways of getting back at us humans, the signs of earth's displeasure with inappropriate and harmful activities of humans are now seen and felt all across the globe like the global warming, climate change, acid rain, drought, flash floods and other forms of natural catastrophes.

Antarctic glaciers and ice sheets are melting at a fast rate, the populations of bees worldwide are dwindling down, numerous species of flora and fauna all across the world are becoming extinct as years go by, the ecosystem is continuously harmed, polar bears are getting hungry and the list goes on.

Here are some practical and small ways that could help our planet get a sigh of relief. Collective small efforts by those who are genuinely concerned with earth's welfare will inevitably help her by great leap and bounds.

1. Don’t allow your children to free those colorful balloons in mid-air. Teach your children not to release balloons. For balloons that escaped the grasps of your children that will hover the sky and eventually fell into oceans and seas will be mistaken as (irresistible meal) jellyfish by sea turtles. Sea turtles take a lot of years to mature and unfortunately some of them got killed by eating balloon or plastic bags. Sea turtles are part of the delicate cycle and if their population is affected other species of marine creatures are also under threat.

2. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Make it a habit to reduce the things we need or we consume. Purchase only things that we only need and eat only what you can. Let us do our share not to be part of the problem or should I say part of the garbage problem. Reuse all the things that can still be repaired/fixed or those things that are still okay.

Recycle things to conserve our resources, collect old newspapers, books, magazines, used papers, bottles (plastic and glass), and any other things that you could sell in junkyards. There is money in garbage and at the same time we’re doing our part in recycling process.

3. Be kind to trees. As much as possible use forests products and timber very well with optimum efficiency. You may use the back of coupons, use pencils until it become as small as possible, and don’t play with matches. Try to get involved in tree planting in your local conservation program. This could be fun as trees can give us added oxygen, shades for people and a refuge to different insects and birds.

4. Broken scientific apparatus like thermometer, barometers, manometers, sphygmanometers, and float valves and other things that have mercury on it should be disposed properly. Avoid throwing this in rivers for mercury is toxic and poisonous not only to the fishes and invertebrates but to the humans as well.

5. Minimize the use of refrigerators, foam blowers, solvents, aerosol spray propellants, fire extinguishers, and chemical reagents for these contains chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) that are responsible to the climate change and depletion of our precious ozone layer. Do not burn plastic please this habit is also harmful to our ozone layer.

6. Do not buy exotic and endangered animals. These animals are intended to be in the wild not as mere decorations to your home, pets or playthings.

7. Educate our children, friends and even our local community about the harmful effects of dynamite fishing, illegal logging, animal poaching, over reliance to wood products and hos of other environmental issues.

8. Do not even bother to try eating exotic and endangered animals for they are not intended to be part of human’s diet. Let the other predatory animal do the stalking and eating hehehe you’re not fit to be a lion. One of the most badly hit by human's penchant for delicious foods are the sharks (shark fin soup), sturgeon (sturgeon roes - caviar- are valued for their great taste and one of the most prized eats in the world), snakes, sea turtles and many other animals.

9. Do not patronize things (coats, purse, belt, etc.) that are made up of an endangered animal or animal part (like skin, fur, bones, tusks, antlers, etc.).

10. Be responsible with your garbage, dispose them properly. Also try to use segregation scheme with your trashes, separate those decomposable from those that are not. You may utilize a compost pit to serve as haven for all of your organic trashes and eventually use this as your fertilizer for your backyard garden or trees.

11. Do the traditional way of helping to conserve our environment by virtue of avoiding smoke-belching.

12. Conserve electrical energy and water by employing tips such as regular cleaning of our bulb and fluorescent light in our home, use only appliances when needed, avoiding dripping of water from our faucets, and reporting any case of broken water pipelines to local government.

13. Support any environmental conservation in your community, you may give some donations if this will not bother you to support their cause. You may also join them in their information dissemination drive and campaign as well. You may also do things that can benefit our environment. If you're living in nearby beaches try putting old tires in the sea, this will serve as sanctuary for fishes to lay their eggs and for a place to hide from predators. You may have some vegetation (vegetables, trees or ornamental plants) in your own backyard, for extra oxygen in your area.

14. Support and visit eco-tours near you, these may promote awareness about the importance of ecology to your children, relative and friends.

15. When visiting any tourism site/protected parks please be responsible with your trashes as much as possible adhere to the rules and regulations of the park even if no one is looking at you.

16. Learn how to appreciate nature and her gifts to mankind and support any environmental campaigns that will help nurture and protect the only planet we live in.

artovlivinggirl on December 19, 2011:

where's my article? :(

Art of living girl - Soniya on December 19, 2011:

Is the world really going to end? i mean if saints are born to teach people even today, i don't believe the world will end.

Sri Sri Ravishankarji, Baba Ramdev ji etc. have been born to teach people the ways of healthy living. But what next?

After people have started living better lives, the next step to follow is to save mother earth!

Shouldn't we express gratitude to the saints and also to mother earth by doing our bit to save earth?

Can a handful of people save earth?

Do busy people find it important to save earth?

What are the possible means to save earth? Can we save earth just by writing slogans and planting a 100 trees on special occasions alone? Other ways out?

Can prayers save earth? REALLY?

I believe twin heart meditation is one way of saving earth. But it should be done by numbers! As in masses of people, at least 1000 at a time! That too daily. I'm serious, it really helps!

I remember i saw the movie earth 2012 and how people were praying at the LAST minute and got washed by a wave!

Why not start before it is way too late?

And also can't we give free servicing of heavy vehicles or by some richie riches sponsoring it? Any NGO there? So that there's less pollution by heavy vehicles specially trucks and public transport buses. And also can we plant more trees, each one of us? 100 people doing it is not enough. Can the number rise?

What are the big celebrities doing? duh!

If i was a celebrity i would not just mint money and show my body but also educate and persuade people to save earth and do some REAL service!

Hello is anyone listening there?

I really wish we save mother earth! :( : /

Thank you for the lovely article and giving me a chance to meet like-minded people. :) I'm so glad!!

jacob on October 14, 2011:

"Because that when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened, professing themselves to be wise, they became fools...who changed the truth of God into a lie and served the creature more then the creator, who is blessed forever." Romans The earth is Not my mother, neither do I serve a mound of dirt. The earth is Not a living entity to be worshiped. The earth is not my mother, nor my refuge and all such talk is no more than idiocy idolized.
