Saving Our Environment

The country has definitely felt the effect of climate change; two typhoons came one after the other bringing relentless rain that cause massive flooding all over Luzon. We, Filipinos living in a tropical country are so used to typhoons but nothing has prepared us for the destruction Typhoon Pepeng and Typhoon Ondoy gave the country. Experts said that Typhoon Ondoy brought in a month’s rain over Metro Manila and nearby provinces in just a matter of six hours.

It is now the time to unite and take action to protect our environment.

Here are some simple ways to take care of our environment:

1. Remember to recycle.
2. Do not use products that contain chemicals that are harmful to the environment.
3. Try alternative form of transportation like walking, biking or car pool with co-workers.
4. Practice waste segregation.
5. Choose energy efficient appliances.
6. Turn off appliances not in use.
7. Use fuel efficient vehicles.
8. Buy locally grown food.
9. Have a once a week meatless day.
10. Bring your own shopping bag when grocery shopping.

Today, October 15, 2009 is Blog Action Day for climate change. All bloggers are encouraged to write a post about climate change to bring about awareness on climate change.

Let us all do the necessary actions while there is still time to save our environment.
