Plastic is the most ever-present and multipurpose material ever invented. In fact in the past 100 years no invention had more influence and presence than plastics. But this progress has had its own cost. We have become addicted to plastic. Packaging is the largest contributor to plastic waste. The average European uses and throws away about 200 plastic bags per year after just one use, this meaning 200 yearly opportunities to make a choice towards a better environment thrown into the bin. Considering that plastic bags aren’t biodegradable, but they photodegrade, thus contaminating soil and water and ending up in food webs and that plastic bags take hundreds of years to break down, we must cut down on plastic consumption. If we re-use plastic containers and use cloth bags instead of plastic bags, we will be contributing to this reduction and keeping our soil and water plastic-free.

Environmental vandalism has been going on for ages. There are different types of environmental vandalism such us littering, poisoning seas and rivers, unsustainable fishing and hunting, snapping branches, uprooting of trees and plants out of the ground, spilling of oil and tar in the countryside and destruction of rubble walls leading to soil erosion. An enjoyable stroll in the countryside can be spoilt by eyesores such as bulky refuse, broken plants and vandalism on trees. More awareness should be raised as to how to report such vandalism. We must not be afraid to be the voice of our environment. As Pope Francis said, “Creation is not a property, which we can rule over at will… Creation is a gift so that we care for it and use it for the benefit of all, always with great respect and gratitude. Safeguard Creation. Because if we destroy Creation, Creation will destroy us!”

Everyone has a right to have a shelter and a roof on his head. People build their homes and try to make them as comfortable as possible. Mother Earth is a home for many living species, who seem to have been living for thousands of years in harmony with the environment. On the contrary, human beings have neglected and harmed their surroundings and have been also threating the habitat which these species have taken care of. The biggest threat to habitats is human intervention and environmental harm. Pollution and climate change are two of the major problems effecting habitats. According to the WWF, “Scientists predict that a global temperature rise of 2–3°C will result in about 20–30% of the Earth’s species being at risk of extinction”. By using cleaner energy and organic farming, we will be reducing pollution, thus protecting our environment, including habitats and protecting species.
