At a time when the environment has become one of the greatest concerns in the world, most people tend to only have a perception that planting more trees is enough to have a clean environment. While it is the beginning of a good environment, one may need to look at both the micro and macro environment. At the macro level, ensuring enough trees is the basics of a better environment. There is also a need for industries to find ways of reducing poisonous fumes and also find ways of ensuring that they treat their waste before releasing them to the environment. One would need to note that a home is a micro-industry that tends to have waste to safely get rid of, and bearing in mind that there are more homes than industries across the world, there is a need for homes to reconsider the perspective in which they perceive waste management.
Home as a micro-industry should consider reducing, reusing, and recycling directly or indirectly. One would need to note that one can reduce, reuse, and recycle and help the community save on money, the environment, natural resources, and energy. What you have at home as waste for example maybe something a student may need to spend money to get for a project in class. On the other hand, what you have as “good waste” in your least-used closet maybe clothing the needy may need to use the money on. Arts students have become icons of using the least wanted clothing, utensils tires, and tubes to make iconic items that perfectly fit in some of our most precious spaces. As a result, items that may be viewed as waste end up being precious and eye-catching items.
You would need to note that reducing and reusing tends to have so many benefits. Among the benefits includes allowing to get rid of items you no longer use in your house. While it is waste to you, an artistic person may turn your garbage to something precious. Through painting, a piece of rag may be turned into one of the best pieces of art you may admire in your living room, bedroom, kids room, ceiling, or even in your outdoor space. The artist as a result would make money from something that would be carelessly disposed of and stress the environment. As a result, you not only create space but also contribute to the economic cycle even when you proudly enjoy more space in your home by donating your stuff.
In the same manner, there may be so many electronics in your home that you no longer use. You may need to make sure that you find the best way of disposing of them. Art may turn electronics you view as waste into some of the best items you have ever seen. With that in mind, you may need to find ways in which you can transform the electronics in question into something useful or even think of donating the electronics in question. Some of the electronics that just sit in your house may be used in ways you have never thought of and hence become useful again as opposed to being considered as useless. While you may not be artistic, donating to artistic people is a way of recycling some of the items you may consider as not useful in your home.
