What You Can Do To Make A Difference; How Small Changes Add Up

There are lots of things you can do to make a difference. If everyone did one, it would be amazing! This article will explore how small changes add up and what you can do to make a difference in the world.

1. The small things you can do to make a difference

-Use reusable bags when going shopping instead of plastic bags that will take 500 years to decompose. This is one simple way to help make a difference in the world.

-Reduce your energy consumption by turning off lights and appliances when they are not in use or when they are sleeping. This is another easy way to have a positive impact on the world.

-If you have used up all the hot water in your shower, wait until it heats up again before turning it on or shut off the tap while you brush your teeth so that less of this precious resource will be wasted.

    -Walk or ride your bike instead of driving everywhere. Riding your bike or walking is better for the environment and also gives you some exercise.

-Turn off all of the water taps when you are brushing your teeth, washing up, or shaving to help conserve this precious resource.

2. How small changes add up

                                         -If everyone had a garden, not only would they be able to grow their own food but they would also reduce their carbon footprint.

                                         -Composting is another way everyone can make a difference because it reduces the amount of trash in landfills and you can use what you composted to improve your garden or even plant new seeds.

3. What you can do to make a difference in the world

-Instead of littering, set a good example to others and pick up trash when you see it on the ground so that everyone will follow your example.

                                         -Plant trees instead of buying new plants every time you need or want them because this way you will be helping the environment and also creating oxygen for us to breathe.

                                         -Become a vegetarian or vegan because this will reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emission that is produced by raising animals for food.

4. Wrap Up

There are lots of ways you can make a difference, even if they seem small at first glance. You can do it by composting, carrying your own bags when you go shopping, and so much more!
