Going Green: Ways Teenagers Could Do to Help Save the Environment
Teenagers all around the world are getting passionately involved in environmental causes and action against climate change. Teens can make informed choices regarding what they eat, what they buy and what energy they consume. As they straddle the space between childhood and adulthood, the positive practices in which teens engage will hopefully carry on through the rest of their lives. Their choices could influence the actions of other teens around them.
Recycle. There are a variety of ways that teens can recycle materials. Techno-savvy teens can recycle their used cellphones and computers after they upgrade. Recycle old clothing, bedding, old homework, notes and notebooks. Speak to the school administration about recycling at your school if there are not already measures set in place. Encourage other students around you to recycle.
Buy vintage. Create a new wardrobe filled with unique vintage pieces bought at the thrift store. You will break the cycle of consumerism while still looking fashionable. Buying vintage ensures that no one else will show up at school with the same outfit.
Eat organic and vegetarian. Try to spice up your average meals with organic produce and vegetarian fare and even eating vegetarian meals once a week will cut down on your carbon footprint.
Turn off the lights, computer and cellphone charger when you are finished using them. Do your part to preserve by conserving electricity when you are not using your electrical appliances. Do not leave devices on stand-by; turn them off instead.
Replace your shampoos, cosmetics and other beauty products with natural, organic alternatives. Natural beauty products are gentler on the earth and are safer to use on the body. They do not contain harmful and harsh chemicals.
Speak up about environmental issues and start a “green” group at your school. You might consider meeting up to discuss issues, organize a community clean-up or plant trees in your neighborhood.
