On this planet, we are surrounded by natural resources. Majestic mountains, lush forests, and endless oceans paint our beautiful landscape. As humans, we have learned to use these resources to not only help us survive, but to also enhance our quality of life.
With an expanding population and a higher demand on these resources for a better quality of life, we are slowly degrading and depleting our surroundings. As a consequence, the quality of life we are able to provide for future generations is at risk. At the current rate of consumption, we are also putting our own quality of life, and even survival, at risk.
The following pages are dedicated to simple things each person can do to help reduce this risk and increase the potential for future generations to prosper in this beautiful world.
“There is a sufficiency in the world for man's need but not for man's greed.” ~Mohandas K. Gandhi
Save the Blue
Only 1% of the world’s natural water supply is suitable for human consumption. With over 6 billion people in the world, this particular resource is becoming more costly to consume. <What can you do to Save the Blue?>
Save the Brown
As consumers of a materialistic society, our habits are piling up quickly. Cities pay for the disposal of our waste in other cities. <Help clean up your town. Save the Brown.>
Save the Green
No one likes a lot of hot air. Greenhouse gasses contribute to the rising climate concerns. <Keep our air clean. Save the Green.>
Save the Orange
As the heat rises, so does energy consumption. There is such a strain on energy pools that black outs may become more common. <Take the plunge. Save the Orange.>
Save the Purple
There are many different resources around the world that can help us to become more efficient and environmentally friendly. Sometimes those resources are in our own backyard. <Don't let the milk curdle. Save the Purple.>
