The world growing green

Sustainability could be defined as an ability or capacity of something to be maintained or to sustain itself. It’s about taking what we need to live now, without jeopardizing the potential for people in the future to meet their needs.

Why is Green Living important?

We should conserve energy resources that we know are finite (oil supplies, etc) and work to create a world in which energy supply comes from renewable sources as much as possible.Going green saves money when done the right way, making your budget go a lot farther. Everyone has to pay for energy and clean water. Saving energy and water will save you money, and that money saved is not trivial. 

Sustainability is the simplest term that signifies the importance of green living. Green living ensures the resources that are required for the sustenance of diverse life on Earth never deplete. The way life is sustained on the world today is highly dependent upon the resources such as minerals and oils that are likely to drain out in future. On the contrary, human population is increasing constantly. In the last 5 decades, there has been 100% increase in the population, which is currently 6.974 billion. According to the UNO, the population will cross 10 billion-mark by 2100. Read more on

A few of many ways do go green

Requirement: Sustainability of energy resources is at the core of green living. Human-life has become extensively integrated with technology and living without electrical and electronic facilities has become unimaginable. Transportation, household activity, warfare, etc. every sphere of life requires energy, which is obtained from fuel. Presently, crude oil and minerals are the major providers of energy. Their prices have been constantly rising, which signifies the growing demand. It will eventually transform into lack of availability. Hence the situation can only be left to imagination now.

Solution: On the other hand, green living is about deriving energy out of sustainable resources such as the sun, the wind, river currents, etc. These are independent natural resources and can be utilized for constant fuel-generation. Work on these concepts has started but nothing substantial or revolutionary has been done yet.

Impact: The emissions released due to the production of electricity out of fossil fuel is a major cause of greenhouse effect, which is the cause of global warming, climate change and ozone depletion. The ozone layer is the Earth’s protective shield against the harmful solar radiations. If unchecked, global warming can render extinction of several marine and terrestrial species and disrupt agriculture in various places on Earth. Extinction of bees alone can reduce 50% of the food items found in groceries. Thus, the situation seems impounding. Read more on
