Losing Beaches- The Effect of Global Warming

The loss of beaches has become a reality since hurricanes and tsunamis have started taking them away. Places like Jamaica, South Florida, the Bahamas and other places have lost beaches and in some places, persons have decided to go in search of sand to replace these lost beaches. Violent hurricanes and tsunamis continue to wreak havoc in many places and this rise of the sea level is another problem faced by persons who live on small islands. The change in the number of hurricanes and cyclones we have seen recently has been blamed on Global warming even though there are persons who disagree with this opinion. We all can say hurricane seasons were not as active as they are now, many years ago.

 

Rising Sea Levels

Sea level rises because of glaciers or ice sheets melting and warming land ice. Even though there are conflicting views about what causes the rise in Sea level. We know it is happening and we need to do all we can to even reduce the rate at which it is rising before we lose more of our beautiful beaches.

It has been reported that some islands no longer have beaches and their soil has become so salty that they are unable to plant food, They are depending on the kindness of outsiders who send them packaged food, so they have waste to burn when the packaging piles up. It is time for persons who live on the continents to think about hpw they can protect the environment and the persons who live on islands. The islands that are found close to the Pacific Garbage Patch are having a hard time. It would be good if persons who discard the most waste and contribute more the greenhouse gas emissions could cut back on the amount of waste they generate as this would cause a reduction in the amount of waste that is burned in landfills and also the amount that makes its way to the Pacific Garbage Patch.

 

 

 

Reducing Waste

Reducing waste is something we need to think about more often, as we just cannot afford to continue like this. If there is no change in the way we generate waste we will only continue to destroy our environment. Reusing many of the things we normally discard is a great way to reduce the amount of waste that gets to our oceans and our landfills. We will spend less on buying new products and we won’t need to worry about having plastic in our sea food as well when we reuse our waste in various ways.

Plastic Pollution

Plastic waste has become a huge problem for us and there has been an effort to replace plastic bottles with biodegradable bottles but that seems to be something we will be waiting on for a while and since it is important for us to do all we can at this time to change the way we treat the environment so we can ensure that our children will have a healthy environment to live in when they grow up. We need to change the way we educate our children about protecting the environment as we prepare for a better tomorrow.

Businesses use Plastic Waste

There are new companies that have started using plastic waste to make new products as they try to reduce the problem we have with plastic pollution we now have. Managers have been making more new products from plastic waste every day as they create more jobs for job seekers.

Creative Children

Children become very creative when they are encouraged to use plastic to make toys and other useful objects. They are able to give the things they make to others as they learn to be more caring while they learn to protect the environment.

The project for the children and the environment is being supported by many parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends. The books they contribute to by purchasing other ebooks on Amazon.com or ordering gigs on fiverr.com are being published. Children are learning about the importance of protecting the environment in a new and easy way.

Protect The Coral Reef

Coral reefs are homes for marine life and human activity is threatening their survival. Global warming, our waste and high acidity from toxins that are released from factories into the oceans.

More needs to be done to understand what Corals reefs need to survive so we can make adjustments when we need to. Our ability to get enough fish for our nutrition might be affected soon if nothing changes and we continue doing the things we are doing to destroy the coral reefs at this time.

Plastic bags block sunlight from the corals and cause them to die, using reusable bags and reducing plastic use and reusing plastic as often as we can is our only option at this time if we plan to have a healthy environment.

Telling children how important it is for the ocean to be protected from plastic pollution is very important, we just cannot allow another generation to allow more waste to get into the oceans and the seas.  Now that you know of the project for the children and the environment, let us work together to protect our environment. As we now know that we protect our own health when our environment is protected.

Treating the environment right will make our future bright and we need to pass this message on to our children before they develop bad habits anddo all the things they should not be doing to pollute the environment.

Why it is Important for Kids to Know About Tree Planting

The children’s imagination comes alive when they see small things grow, they are also motivated and inspired when they see how much they can do with some water and a seed. It is not too early for a 3-year-old child to start learning about planting seeds and watching them grow. They will be learning about the source of their food and what they can do to feed themselves and others in the future.

There is a new ebook coming to this website soon, the contributors who have supported this project for the children and the environment over the years have made it possible, as we all believe that talking about the planting of trees and protecting the environment should be simple enough for children to understand.

Children are very curious and it is good for us to give them good information when they are willing to learn about the important issues that will help them to provide for themselves in many ways when they grow up. For too long we have allowed children to grow up without any knowledge of how their food is produced, they have not had much respect for the farmer as they don’t understand the hard work that goes into farming and how important that job is

Family Fun and Tree Planting

Planting trees and doing gardening should become a fun activity for our kids to get involved in when parents are there to guide them. We all need to eat and it is good for us to pay more attention to the way in which our food is produced. Now that we are finding out that packaged food might not be as good for our health as the fresh food we get from our own garden. We are able to use compost and eat healthy when we plant our own trees and vegetables. Fruit trees can produce enough fruits for us and others. They sometimes outlive the person who plants them and continues to feed the next generation. Planting fruit trees can be seen as a great investment in the present and the future.

Planting trees can be a great way to teach the children how to be patient, as it takes a while for small leaves to show after a seed is planted. Children who join environmental clubs at their schools will have books that will help them to learn about protecting the environment, they will learn quickly. They will also start learning how great it is to have a lot of fruits they can give to friends and loved ones when they learn to plant trees.

Food Security

Thinking about food security was never a problem before there was so much technology it seems. Children who spend all their time before the televisions, or computers, or playing video games will know nothing about planting trees if they don’t have the information on the internet. The e-book “Ricardo’s Tree” that will be published here soon. Will be putting an end to the problem we now have when children grow up to be adults who know nothing about how their food is produced. Even though farming is being done in a new way now, and there are new ways of planting seeds and reaping crops. There is still need for more food for poor people in some places. Learning to plant trees is still a good thing for children to learn.

The Importance of Tree Planting

In some countries, farmers are old and dying. If children are not prepared to learn about planting anything, no one knows what they will eat in the future. There has been a rumor of fake food being found on our supermarket shelves and in order to reduce the need for fake food, we need to encourage our children to start learning about planting seeds as soon as possible. As soon as they ask our permission and find a suitable spot they should be allowed to plant their tree. Can we say we are preparing our children to have a future that is bright if we are not telling them how to plant anything? Isn’t food one of the most important things they will need to have in order to survive?

Trees help to clean the air and prevent soil erosion as well. Children should be told about the importance of tree planting so they will not continue treating the environment in the same way it has been treated for many years. In some places, persons have cut down trees to do farming and they move away after a while; leaving the ground bare. This leads to soil erosion, eroded soil washes down onto the roadway and cause major damages sometimes and it washes into seas or oceans and damages Coral Reefs.

Replanting Trees Reduces Deforestation

Now there is hope for having a future with trees to help us to have clean air. For so many years persons have been cutting down trees and not replanting any as if they don’t understand that deforestation is not a good thing.

With this tree planting machine, there is hope that there will be an end to deforestation as it won’t be as hard for loggers to replant trees anymore.

 

 

Reforestation is now something that is much easier to do since they have developed these drones. There is hope for large areas that have been deforested over the years. It is good that there are persons who are interested in having clean air and less soil erosion. Tree planting is very important and we have not been paying enough attention to this practice in some places over the years.

Reducing Poverty and Hunger

Tree planting can help us to reduce poverty and hunger around the world. We can make more value-added products when we have more fruits and poor people will have more fruits to sell and eat. More jobs are created when value-added products are made with fruits or when fruits are packaged for sale. This can be used as a poverty reduction strategy and more new manufacturing companies can be started in places where poverty and crime have caused problems in poor countries.

Wine is one of the best value-added product that has been created and we have not done all we can do with wine production as yet I believe. Much more jobs can be created and we can see a reduction in crime if our children are taught more about tree planting and how important it is at an early age. They can start learning about the many products that are made with fruits, eg. mango chutney, guava jelly, Jams, apple juice, orange juice and other fruit juices have been put into containers and sold.

Supporting this project for the children and the environment is a great thing to do. You will be getting a lot in return when you order ebooks and fiverr gigs on the site. There has been a big change in the way persons are being employed as we have used more technology and there is less need for human employment. It is important for us to be creative and employ persons in a new way so they won’t be attracted by crime.

In countries where persons complain about a lack of opportunities, they will find that there is a lot they can do with seeds and food production. Reducing hunger and poverty around the world is very important. Supporting this project will cause you to be a winner in many ways. As the Fiverr gigs you order will help you in many ways and the ebooks you buy can be great for your collection. You can also purchase ebooks for all the children you know. You’ll be doing something great for environmental protection awareness.

I am using this opportunity to say a big thank you to all the persons who contributed to the publishing cost of the great ebooks that are here on the site. . I believe children will like them a lot and they will be motivated and willing to do more for the environment.

As learning about protecting the environment as we work towards reducing the amount of waste we generate daily is a very wonderful thing to do. Now that there are books about this important topic for the children to read, let us continue working together and making the world into a better place, where there is no more garbage patch in the ocean and the coral reef will be restored in many places when we change some of our habits as we start teaching our children about protecting the environment and we will be learning a little about the topic as well.

Protect the Environment – Use Reusable Bags, cups and More

Dining at restaurants where reusable utensils are used is good for the environment. The use of plastic straws, knives, forks and spoons causes us to have more plastic waste to burn, which pollutes our air. In order to reduce waste we need to pay attention to these issues as we work towards having a clean and healthy environment.
It is also good for our children to practice using these utensils as well, so they won’t be embarrassed when they attend formal occasions and they don’t know what to do at the dining table.

Reusable Bags for Shopping

Using reusable bags when we shop can help to reduce the amount of plastic that gets into our oceans and seas. We will be doing more to protect our marine animals when we use less plastic bags. Burning these bags in the landfills produce toxic fumes that is bad for our health also. This is one more thing we can easily do to protect the environment and our health as well.
It is time for us to think about what happens to the environment when we use plastic bags. They don’t become a part of the soil until after a long time. This causes them to pile up and become a huge problem for the environment.

Reusable cups and bottles can help us to reduce the number of paper cups and plastic bottles we use. When we carry water from our homes in our own water bottles we will use less of the plastic bottles that we buy water in.
Using reusable cups when we buy coffee reduces the number of paper cups we use.

Taking reusable cups will help us to save our money, as we will spend less on water when we take our water from home instead of buying water everywhere we go. And we can also buy less coffee and juice when we go out. We will spend less on gasoline as well as we won’t be traveling to the malls and restaurants to buy juice, water and coffee as often as we did before.

Reducing the amount of plastic we use saves our environment in many ways, as it takes hundreds of years for plastic to disintegrate and it piles up in drains and causes flooding of our roads, which leads to the disintegration of roads which costs governments more for road repairs and increases taxation. We spend more on car repairs also when we are constantly driving through potholes. Added to all that when we allow the plastic to get to the oceans and the seas and marine animals eat it they die. We should not want to be hurting our marine animals when we can do more recycling reusing and reducing plastic.It is good for us to do more for our environment so we can reap the great rewards. However, somehow a lot of persons are not doing enough to protect the environment and a lot of plastic is in our drains, landfills and in the seas and oceans causing problems.
When we understand the problems that are caused by the wrong disposal of plastic waste and reduce, reuse or recycle plastic and other waste we will be working towards living in a clean and healthy environment. We will see less mosquito-bourne diseases being spread. Less sick marine creatures in our oceans and seas, less flooded and damaged roads, we will not need to worry if the fish we eat was eating plastic and if we will get sick after we eat them.

The Benefits of telling Children about Protecting the Environment

Increasing awareness about these issues is something we all need to do. Fun Writings and Things has been working on a project that will help every child to learn about the important issues that cause our environment to be unhealthy. This will help them to make better decisions about the way they use and discard plastic. They will know how important protecting the environment is, and they will be willing to help their parents with the simple things they can do to protect the environment. They will remind their parents about using reusable bags, carrying their own utensils to restaurants, using reusable straws, carrying reusable cups and bottles, they will be willing to carpool, willing to give away used clothes and toys, with composting and they will help to separate the waste.

Protecting the environment can become a fun activity when everyone in families knows all about the benefits of recycling, reusing and reducing plastic use, and families will be able to save money by making new things with waste and have a clean environment to live in. You can learn about the many things families can do with plastic waste and other waste material by watching videos like this one and others like it.


Plastic Bottles are Solar Bulbs too

When we Reuse plastic in every way we can, we can say we are showing mother earth how much we appreciate all the ways in which she contributes to our well being. Every day there are new inventions, as people try to use plastic in many ways to make a difference in the life of others. The new way of making Solar light bulbs in the Philippines has helped the people a lot. Take a look at the video, it might inspire you to invent something that is just as helpful as this.
The economy will grow in places where people have more light as light gives people an opportunity to use their ideas to generate incomes.

Being creative and helping people to lift themselves out of poverty is a great thing to do. Going green provides jobs for many people in poor countries and other countries as well. Being aware of the things we can do to protect the environment can change lives and make them so much better. Let’s do all we can to educate the kids about all that is being done as the environment is being protected, more and more each day. They will be encouraged to do their part, as they work towards having a bright future.
