Here’s the thing: the planet that’s been our home for a long time is suffering- and that’s a fact. Look at the massive deforestation, look at all the pollution, global warming- look at everything. Humans consider themselves to be the most intelligent species on this planet, right?

How is it, then, that we’re exactly the ones mistreating our very home? That doesn’t sound very nice, does it?

We can still fix it, though. And thankfully, there are a lot of people realizing that, but the process can always do with a little hurrying up. As earthlings, we have a duty towards the planet- our home. We must protect it to the best of our abilities.

What do I mean by that?

There are a few key points here. I’ll address them all one by one.

First off, there’s the matter of respecting other earthlings. It doesn’t only mean other people, but it does include that. We need to work together in order to better the state of our home, and a mutual state of friendliness can only help to achieve that. When it comes to animals and plants, they contribute to the well-being of the ecosystem in uncountable ways. I urge you to treat them accordingly- and no, I don’t mean to tell you to go vegan or swear off any product of animal origin for good (though I definitely encourage you to give it a try, if you’re willing)- what I’m trying to say is to stop acting as if our actions have no consequences.

Second off, there’s the matter of education- and not in the traditional sense. What is probably the best measure to be adopted is working towards educating more people in regards to the current state of the planet- we need to put an actual effort into cutting off ignorance from our ranks. The more people begin to realize how serious the matter is, the more they’ll be willing to do something about it. Raising awareness is something that needs to be taken seriously and handled in a proper manner. Doing it halfheartedly and not involving oneself in the activity can only lead to it being carried away at less than its full potential.

Third off, there’s the matter of actual steps being taken towards solving the problem. That can be done in so many ways! Use public transportation, recycle (or reuse things as often as you can), avoid throwing things away by transforming them into an aesthetic DIY, that you can later gift or use yourself. Support organizations that are promoting these ideas, try to find cruelty-free makeup or recycled products (refer to the first paragraph of this post). If you try to put the tiniest amount of effort in this, you’ll find how easy it is to remember not to leave the lights on in a room, not to leave the tap running, not to throw away food.

I have to be honest with you.

I’m guilty of many of the things mentioned above. But I’m aware of that and I’m working towards fixing this issue. It might take a while, but I’m determined.

Hope this post managed to shine some light on the way I see the matter of our planet. We’re all Earthlings and it’s our duty to protect our home- the same home that has been welcoming and lovely and is now suffering.
