Cleaning Up Our Environment: What You Can Do to Help.

Article by Harry’s Janitor Service.

Our planet has become one that is unfortunately full of pollution of all types. The waterways are becoming toxic, the air we breathe is no longer fresh and clean, the soil is polluted with chemical run-offs from large factories. The newest trend in helping our planet become a safer and cleaner place to live can be accomplished if everyone makes just a few simple changes in their lifestyle.

One way to help the environment is to recycle when possible. Recycling plastics and other items will help keep our underground water resources cleaner. It also helps keep our soil clean. This can be done by separating your garbage into recyclable containers and having the proper companies dispose of them. Another way to help by recycling is to pick up trash when you see it. Even small bits of plastic may take years to break down into the soil. Birds and other animals can be harmed by plastic bags that float in the water, by becoming entangled in them. Recycling is a great way to help the environment and keep nature a bit cleaner for the animals.

Another way to help our planet is to go green and try to conserve energy. This can be done in a number of ways. One way is to purchase the latest models of energy saving appliances for your home. Nearly all types of appliances are now made to conserve as much energy as possible. Another way to conserve energy is to walk instead of drive when possible. Riding a bike for longer distances can have a positive impact, as you will lessen the amount of fuel we use.
