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.

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.

Top 10 benefits of Environmental Protection for kids

pexels-photo-301977.jpeg
Children are naturally curious and most of them like the outdoors a lot. They like playing many games with balls, bats and other objects. There are some children who even like bugs and other small creatures. It is good for them to learn about environmental protection awareness at this early stage before they start developing bad habits. When this is done we will see a decrease in the degradation of the environment as children will not litter streets and they will know what to do in order to keep the environment healthy, so that life on earth can continue in a sustainable way. They will also grow up and become responsible

citizens who will do more to protect the environment.

Children who are aware will act Responsibly
1.Children will turn off lights when they are not needed, they will want to help their parents to reduce their electricity consumption and reduce their countries oil bill. When they know all the facts pertaining to oil importation and the benefits they will be getting when they conserve.

Why Kids will be Interested in Environmental Protection Awareness

2. Children will want to start thinking about their own future as early as possible. When they become aware of the things they can do for the environment. They will know that they are doing something to make their own future bright. For example, when they know how plastic hurts the marine animals in so many ways and how it might cause them to go extinct after a while. They will help to put more plastic waste into recycling bins and get involved in more trash to cash projects. So they can help to reduce the amount of plastic that gets washed down to the seas or oceans whenever the rain falls. Allowing our waste to destroy the lives of other creatures on the planet is really unfair. Children will always want to protect our beaches as well. They enjoy going to the beach and having fun, they won’t want to do anything that will destroy beaches and put an end to their beach trips.

They will grow up to be more caring and generous. Giving away their craft items will be something that children with like doing as they find new ideas to create new craft items every day.


Spreading the news about Environmental Awareness

4. Children are always eager to tell their friends about their experiences, this will cause them to spread the word about protecting the environment a lot. Soon all the children and the adults they know will want to do more for the environment, as children can be very persuasive when they want to get something done and parents won’t want to be the ones who treat the environment badly and set bad examples for their kids.

Toxins and Our Health

5.Children who know how the burning of plastic and other waste can release toxins into the air and cause them to have respiratory illnesses; will want to do all they can to help to reduce the amount of toxic waste that goes into the garbage at their homes.


Assisting with waste Separation

6. Children who are aware of how important it is to protect the environment will assist their parents with the separation of waste at their homes and at their schools; by putting plastic waste in the right bins and organic waste in another bin. They will even want to plant their own gardens and do their own composting. They will also help their parents to find products that are packaged in a biodegradable material when they go shopping.

Children and Tree Planting

7. Children who are involved in projects for environmental protection will know how important tree planting is. They will know that trees absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen so we can have clean air to breath, added to the fact that they produce fruits for us as well. They will want to plant seeds and watch plants grow, and see that as a very fascinating experience.

Reducing the need for Oil

8. Children who know how important it is to protect the environment will do more to reduce the amount of oil-related products used by their families. They will not mind when their parents decide to organize carpools or take the bus to go places. They will also reduce the amount of electricity they use by turning off the lights and the television when they are not being used.

Not Allowing Creatures to go Extinct
9. Children who want to learn about how they can have a bright future by protecting the environment; will understand how important it is for humans to do their part to protect the lives of the many creatures on the planet; so they won’t go extinct. These creatures like the Bee helps with pollination and the growth of many plants. Whenever some creatures go extinct our food supply is affected and that cannot be a good thing.

pexels-photo-395241.jpeg
Interest in the Products made from Recycled Plastic
10. Children will be interested in learning about all the new products that are made from recycled plastic and how they are sold for less as it costs less to produce new plastic from used plastic than from oil. This causes a reduction in the amount of oil that is shipped and a reduction in the number of oil spills that occurs. Reducing oil spills will reduce the damage done to the marine animals and fish, and cause our oceans and seas to be less toxic, so the fish we eat will be healthy.

Environmental protection awareness will affect the lives of all humans on the planet, as toxins damage our bodies when they get into our food, water, and air. Keeping our environment clean is important and it is something we need to tell our children about more often. So let’s start in a very easy way to help our children to become friends of the environment. They can start reading books about this extremely important topic more often when you support the project for the children and the environment on this site. A healthy environment keeps us healthy, let’s get that message to our children, so they will start working towards having a bright future?
