Environmentalism means concerns for a safer environment.
It came into being when first time a voice was raised to keep the planet Earth clean. Its impact was felt when first time somewhere in the world a group of people stood for the protection of their local environment. It was heard first time when a leader on podium pledged to protect his environment.
But it does not mean environmentalism means simply green rhetoric. It is an ideology to spend your life taking full care of your environment. It is not confined to simply pledges, commitments and promises. It mainly revolves around your action. Every act of green reflects environmentalism of its doer.
What is environmentalism in present times?
Rapid technological advancement promoted comforts enormously. Reliance on machines has raised manifold. Life is now almost impossible without machine. Just imagine how many machines you use in 24 hours. I am sure you use machines so much so that your life itself has become like a machine if not purely a machine. All the gadgets we use need electricity and it is generated with machine.
But why to oppose machines when they make life so comfortable. This is not the machine but its excessive use is harmful for environment. To cover a distance of few feet we drive a car and burn fuel which hits our environment with its emission. Is it a wise use of machine?
So in present times environmentalism requires practical action in your both individual and collective life. It does not call for complete avoidance to use machines or technology. It just demands a balance way of living. It asks for a life with comforts, luxuries, necessities in abundance but they should not be used in a way which promotes their waste. If we have completed our work we must not leave the computer switched-on to keep consuming electricity which is created by burning of fossil fuel. The ultimate outcome is more air pollution which means more respiratory disease to us and to our kids.
2 rules to follow environmentalism
While spending your life do take care of your surroundings, your environment and yourself also. While using anything, while doing any work or while consuming any food item just ask is it safe for me, for my surroundings and for my environment. You need not to do research to get your answer. The type and nature of thing, work or activity will itself tell you is it safe for all or not. While raising the volume of your music player did you ever think if it disturbs others or not.
For any activity never go extreme. Eat but as much as you can digest or as much as it is good for your health depending upon your age and physique.
Have fun but as much as it does not bring any curse to you. In your every action you need to follow a moderate way of living. Balance is the most beautiful thing in life.
While eating, enjoying, driving, having fun just imagine this is not last time you are doing. You will be having more and more chances if you stay in limit there.
So this is all about what is environmentalism and why you should follow it. It is must to follow it to hand over this world in a safer state to our next generation.
