Cleanliness they say is next to Godliness. Our environment speaks more of us, our present, future and generations yet unborn.
An environment can simply be described by me as a place that we live and the things around us that makes it comfortable to live in.
The things or elements of an environment includes;
The plants/the trees
Natural resources such as diamonds, crude oils, tins, gold etc..
Man we know is an animal, though an higher class of animal, endowed with a lot of knowledge and Wisdom by Maker of Heaven and earth, to oversee all the elements that i have mentioned above.
Now if this elements are mismanaged or missused, it will bring and adverse effects on mankind and can even threatens to stop the existence of humanity.
Take for instance, the mistake or intention that led to the emergence of the Covid 19 pandemic. You could see how many lives were lost within a space of a very short time.
The things of nature must be properly managed and well taken care of, that was while God left them in our hands and not in the hands of Chimpanzees, monkeys or Gorillas.
What are some of these things we should do to maintain a good and safe environment?
1. We should always endeavor to keep our environment clean. Life threatening diseases emerges mostly from dirty environments.
2. We should avoid direct contacts to strange animals because some of these animals carries dangerous diseases in their blood line.
3. Oxygen is very important in our lives, as we take in oxygen from plants and give them out carbonvioxide. Therefore we should encourage the planting of trees in our environment as they also serve as shades from sunlight and also control winds.
4. We should avoid unnecessary killing of animals because them too have their roles to play
5. We should always try as much as possible to recycle our waste products instead of just living them like that to liter our environment.
6. Environmental sanitation awareness and synthesization should be carried out by government in the rural areas to help educate the illiterates and the poor about the need of a clean and healthy environment.. Remember they re humans too, if they re affected, the world is affected.
Together let join hands and make our environment a living heaven and not a living hell.
