#EarthDay Suggestions on how to help the Enviroment

Lately, I must tell you as a matter of fact , and am no scientist, the earth's temperature is continually increasing because there has been a lot of heat lately and this is one of the sign of Global warming and the  results of our action when we refuse to take care of our environment. #EarthDay

You think am blabbing, see this report;

A difference of half a degree centigrade may be barely noticeable day to day, but the difference between 1.5C and 2C of global warming is a shift into a new, more dangerous climate regime, according to the first comprehensive analysis of the issue. The scientists found the additional 0.5C would lead to longer heatwaves, greater droughts and, in the tropics, reduced crop yield and all coral reefs being put in grave danger.Source: Guardian

So, this year's Earth Day will see people around the world come together to campaign for the protection of the environment.

Environmentalists everywhere will be marking the day like usual, but this year's Earth Day is going to be more important than ever, since it'll see the signing of the Paris climate agreement.

Google Doodle marked the day with a series of pictures celebrating animals and nature.

The politicians signing the Paris Agreement at the UN headquarters in New York will be doing their bit, but what can you actually do to help the environment on Earth Day? Here's some suggestions from Independent

Finally start carrying a bag for life

The law which requires large businesses to charge 5p for carrier bags came into effect in England in December last year, but it's been in place in Wales since 2011, in Scotland since 2014, and in Northern Ireland since 2013.

However, many people still accept them when buying goods at smaller shops, which aren't subject to the laws, and some of us just haven't got into the habit of carrying a reuseable bag yet.

Earth Day is a good day to start using one. In 2014, British shoppers used 8.5 billion single-use carrier bags, which used up huge amounts of energy and materials in their production and transport. Many of these bags also became litter, or ended up in landfill sites, where they take centuries to break down.

Reusing a bag a few times, or buying a sturdier one which will last longer, is a great way to cut down on unnecessary waste.
