their effects on ecosystems is complex. They can come from natural disasters or the result of
human activity, such as oil spills, chemical spills, nuclear accidents ... These can have terrible
consequences on people and the planet where they live: destruction of the biodiversity, increased
mortality of the human and animal species, destruction of natural habitat, damage caused to the
quality of soil, water and air ...

Preventing pollution and protecting the environment necessitate the application of the
principles of sustainable development. we have to consider to satisfy the needs of today without
compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. This means that we should
remedy existing pollution, but also anticipate and prevent future pollution sources in order to
protect the environment and public health. Any environmental damage must be punishable by

5 Ways to Save the Planet without Really Trying

1. Waste not
Make the most of what you buy. You’d be surprised at the resources that go into products:
making one liter of milk takes a thousand liters of water and a lot of electricity. Think twice
before you chuck out the bottle with a little left in the bottom.
2. Nip the chill
You’re at the supermarket, café or pharmacy and you walk past the freezers and fridges.
Your mission: if any of the fridge or freezer doors are open, shut them. That’s it, just shut
them. Job done!
3. Skip the wrapping
If you have a choice, buy produce loose and not in packaging. So, pick a loose pepper
with no packaging versus a pepper in a Styrofoam tray with a plastic wrapper. Easy! Plus
it’s usually cheaper too.
4. Bring that bag
If you’re not already bringing your own reusable shopping bag, consider this tip. Get a
reusable shopper that’s silver-lined like a cooler bag, and use that for your grocery
shopping. You can pop in an ice brick to keep everything fresh until you get home, and it
does double-duty as an extra cooler bag for picnics and trips.
5. Choose sustainable seafood
There are no longer plenty more fish in the sea. If you’re eating seafood, you should opt
for sustainable species.

This Is the Time


(excerpt)

This is the time


We've waited too long
And I'm wondering where I belong?
We have lost
We're out of control
When we fail nature speaks to us all

This is the time


I'll tell you why the world's left alone
Now's the time to make right what's wrong
We have lost
We're out of control
If we're stray can we hear nature's call?
When we fail nature speaks to us all

This is the time


So what's the world to be?
Just a luxury?
A temporary scene?
But what have we got when it's gone away?
And we need to come to see
What the earth should be
A sanctuary free
A renewed paradise is still alive

This is the time


The sky and the sea
We speak the paragons
We planted the seed
We have lost
We're out of control
If we're stray can we hear nature's call?
When we fail nature speaks to us all
