How to Cope up with a Damaged Environment

Since prevention is already late for us to do, dealing and coping are what we must practice. Our damaged environment can be cured if we do the things that we, humans, are responsible for doing.

Natural Ways of Coping up that will Give Natural Outcomes

 Even if there’s a famous quote that says “prevention is better than cure,” we, as humans, failed to do preventive measures to protect our environment. We often neglect our responsibilities as an individual living in an environment that needs to be taken care of. But what can we do? It is there already. The damage has been done, and once it is done, it cannot be undone. What we can do now is to cope up with the effects of our actions. And if you’re interested in know-how, and then let’s go!

 

Failed to prevent but will succeed in coping up

We cannot turn back time of we have already failed to prevent the pollution and other factors that damaged our environment, but we can always use the present and future times wisely as we all help in dealing and coping up in the present situation. We must have our mini checklist, and those are:

  1. Change of ways

If we use disposable plastics in our daily consumption, then we should change and use alternative materials that are reusable. If we are used to burning our garbage, which is a big NO, we must stop doing so and start recycling it. There are a lot of things that we are used to doing but are dangerous to the environment that we should change. And that is what we mean when we say a change of ways!

  1. Conservation

Conservation has to do with our daily consumption of everything. We cannot avoid using it, but we can conserve it. Like in water usage, we can conserve it by turning off all possible water sources at home when not in use. Also, in energy consumption, we can do energy conservation if we would always think of alternatives that will reduce electricity usage, like using long-life batteries, solar panels, and innovative products that will not cause any electricity damages.

  1. 3 R’s

The Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle Method will help not just in the conservation of the natural resources but can mitigate the negative impacts of dumping wastes in our environment and our ozone layer as we can also avoid burning with this method. With this, we can also help in rehabilitating our ozone layer that can possibly stop or mitigate climate change.

  1. Maintenance

It is not enough to just do an action once, but it must be practiced continuously. It is a long-term process that will surely give us long-term benefits if we continue the things that we are doing in coping with our damaged environment. Maintenance is always what a coping process would ask for as this will be a continuous practice and not just one-day dealing.

Natural Ways of Coping up that will Give Natural Outcomes

In dealing with our damaged environment, we must always think of possible changes that we should make because it can be from ourselves where the damage has started. We may be unaware that we are one of the contributors to the said damage, but we must be aware of our responsibility- the responsibility to properly cope-up and improve our almost-lost environment.
