A healthy environment is required to protect human and animal to live. We need fresh air to breathe in and clean water to drink. We need to use our natural resources without causing harm to the environment. Here are three ways we can protect the environment.


When we use glass bottles, paper or aluminum cans, we usually throw them in the trash. These end up in the landfills which later becomes toxic can be harmful to the environment. We should recycle these wastes and protect our environment.

Conserve energy

Energy is scarce. We should try to conserve energy by reducing its consumption. At home, we should use energy efficient appliances. We should switch off lights when no in use. We should use double glazed windows so that we have to use less air conditioning and we can cut down on our energy bills.

Going green

We can change our lifestyles to incorporate green ways of doing things. We can walk or take a bicycle to our work instead of a car. We can reduce our electricity consumption by using our laptop on battery most of the time. We can buy electric cars to reduce the effect of greenhouse gases. We should plant more trees to make air fresh. We can place solar panels on our roofs.

We should use an eco-friendly approach to whatever we do. It is our duty to protect the environment and make it sustainable. We all must work together to protect the environment we live in.
