“Try to leave the Earth a better place than when you arrived" ~ Sidney Sheldon
As rightly said in the quote, we might not be able to change the whole world at a time, but we can definitely try and bring in change at a personal level. Green living is one of the ways of doing so.
What exactly is meant by green living?
It refers to a way of life where your every action and decision is in harmony with nature. Every small step taken in the direction of bringing a change is very crucial - that includes small-scale developments like planting a home garden to a big scale unanimous move of societal tree planting.
How can we as individuals turn to a greener life?
Getting into the technicalities of how our carbon footprints are increasing by the day or by what percent are our acts affecting the planet, really is just a means of being informed. Now is the time to act! We have been told multiple times about all the activities we should avoid in order to bring a change, and now is the time to imply them.
Below mentioned are a few ways in which we can move toward a greener life:
1. Set up your home-grown garden: In urban life, due to space crunch, it is next to impossible to have your own extensive garden where you can grow your own plants. But with real estate moving towards sustainable living, developers are now offering garden spaces in your homes where planting of your choice can be done with convenience with space-saving techniques like vertical gardens that utilize the vertical walls of the balconies.
