I have found something a little fun for you to try! I know that some classes at BG require you to take this quiz, but if you have not had to do it yet, try it out! It measures your ecological footprint by asking different questions that apply to recycling and conserving. It will give you an idea of how much damage you do the earth personally. After finding out your numbers, it may make you rethink what you are doing when you throw something away or turn off a light. The same website also gives you great simple tips on how to go green. It explains that before you can care about being eco friendly you need to be informed of the issues. A big issue that deals with conserving is global warming.
Global warming is the overheating of the earth caused by the green house effect. The rise in temperature leads to higher sea levels from the melting of glaciers and ice. This then leads to species extinction. Other simple ways to go green that are on the list are to cut down on your carbon emissions. Instead of taking your car everywhere, walk to the close places or ride a bike. Not only is it healthy for the earth but for you as an individual as well!
I am currently a senior at Bowling Green State University. I will graduate this year with a degree in Journalism and minor in sociology. I grew up in a household where recycling was the only way of life. After coming to college, I remained faithful to my ways. I still contiunued to recycle without my parents telling me to do so. I started this blog to show how easy it is to recycle on a college campus and what kind of benefits it has for the world.
