Mike Aamoth is a musician who has been playing the oboe for several years. He has experience performing with a number of major orchestras around the country, and on the stages of some of Europe’s most historic concert halls. However, he is also an environmental activist, and he knows how to do his part for the sake of the environment; here are some tips to help the environment.
Minimize your use of toxic chemicals. All the chemicals we use for growing plants, killing weeds, and fertilizing our lawns has an impact on our underground water ways, and thusly, our drinking water. Only one percent of the Earth’s water is safe for human consumption, and we need to do our best to keep that number from shrinking even further. If you have to use chemicals that could be harmful, be cautious.
Use renewable energy at home or at work. Wind, solar, and geothermal energy sources are all viable options for paying many of our everyday needs. As environmentalism continues to grow in popularity throughout the world, renewable energy technologies are being developed regularly. Solar panels are a great way to help protect the environment at home.
Support environmental causes and organizations. One of the best ways you can protect the environment is by spreading the word. Get involved in organizations that aim to protect the environment, spread awareness regarding important issues, and support political officials who care about the Earth’s future.
Mike Aamoth is an active supporter of Greenpeace, Amnesty International, and Heifer International. He wants to do his part in order to protect the environment for future generations of humanity.
