The power of helping the planet

Planet Earth is this fantastic place in which we all live. It is like a great house that gives us shelter and gives us wonderful sunrises every day, a sun that warms us and food so that we can nourish ourselves. But for this to continue to be the case, it is necessary that we take care of our home. So today, Darwin and I are going to tell you several ways to help the planet.

Why we should help the planet

There are more planets in the universe, besides Earth, which is the one we are on. However, this is the only one in which we could live, since for life, as we know it, specific conditions have to be met.

The sea, the trees, the mountains... All the landscape that we see around us exists here in a particular way. And it is thanks to all that beautiful nature that humans and other animals are living here. However, not all people are aware of the relationship we have with the environment, and that is why Darwin has lost his power. Without it, we cannot carry out our work of caring for the Earth.

But thanks to the Wise Bird we have discovered that boys and girls can help us. You are the key! If we do not learn to help the planet, it will deteriorate, and we will no longer have clean water to drink, trees to shelter under, and mountains in which animals can live.

How we can help the planet

There are various ways to help the planet, and we are going to tell you what they are so you can participate with us. How easy it is to become superheroes! You just have to keep reading and put all these ideas into practice.

Use only the water you need

Water is a natural resource that we take for granted, that is, since we always see that it is there, we think that it never ends. However, it's not always like that. There are many regions of the planet where it does not rain enough.

As a result, the land dries up and it is not possible to grow fruits and vegetables. Rivers and lakes become empty and many fish lose their homes. And the ponds, those reservoirs in which we collect water, also empty and we are left without water to drink and clean ourselves. Can you imagine what it would be like to not have clean water in the tap at home?

That is why it is very important to help the planet to turn off the tap when we are using soap. Both in the shower and in the sink or in the sink with the dishes.

Reuse whenever you can

Sometimes, when we want to take a shower, the hot water takes a while to come out. Do you know that it is possible to pick up the cold one and give it a second chance? If you have a bucket, you can place it inside the bathtub and remove it when it gets warm.

With that water that we have collected we can water the plants we have at home. It can also be used to mop the floor and even as a substitute for the cistern. After all, it is water! And if other uses occur to you, do not hesitate to tell your mother and father about them so they can put them into practice. The planet will be very proud of you for your actions!

Keep your environment clean

Helping the planet means taking care of it, so we have to avoid dirtying it. If you go on an excursion to the beach or near a lake with your schoolmates or family, do not throw anything into the water or bury things under the sand or earth. We must keep our environment clean.

With the wind, they will rise again and may end up in the sea with the rise and fall of the tide. An animal could also ingest it and become poisoned. Plastic pollutes a lot and, to help the planet, we have to stop using it.

These are just a few ways to help the planet, but there are many more. How many can you think of? Darwin and I like to play to discover them. Come play with us and don't stop helping the planet!
