5 tips to save the environment on Earth Day

Children in CCFC-supported communities in India learn simple tips

By Lipi Jobson, CCFC India communications manager

“The Earth is what we all have in common,” says Wendell Berry, American poet and environmental activist. On Earth Day, we are reminded to take steps – however small they may seem – to reduce our negative impact on our planet.   

At Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (CCFC), we work to improve the quality of life for children, youth, their parents and community members. This includes caring for the environment. In CCFC India’s sponsorship program, children are taught easy ways to protect the Earth and reduce harm.

Five safeguards the children have learned include:

1. Plant a tree. Trees absorb carbon dioxide and harmful gases such as sulfur dioxide and carbon monoxide and release oxygen. By planting trees, we reduce destruction to the atmosphere caused by deforestation, keep the air clean and cool the air, land and water with shade and moisture.

2. Walk, bike or take public transit. Greenhouse gas emissions from private vehicles are rising every year. This has harmful effects on the Earth, such as global warming.

3. Turn off lights you aren’t using. An easy way to make a positive change is to reduce energy consumption. Be mindful of unnecessary use of electricity, and keep lights or other appliances off when not in use.

4. Switch to energy-efficient lightbulbs. Fluorescent or LED bulbs can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, save money and protect the environment.

In Ammanpuram, a CCFC-sponsored community, a decision was made to switch to energy-efficient lightbulbs. Children and parents’ committees came together to advocate for the switch and have called for a community-wide petition-signing to replace all lightbulbs in the local primary school.

5. Reuse bags. Carry cloth bags while shopping. This reduces garbage from plastic bags and supports a sustainable lifestyle.

By incorporating these simply tips into daily life, it’s easy to improve the environment we share with others around the world.
