Join us for Earth Hour 2022 to help cure the planet by switching off all lights for one hour
We know that our today and tomorrow depend on our natural resources. Unfortunately, our natural resources aren't endless. Sustainability also means establishing a balance between nature and humanity, which is directly dependent on us.
The fact that climate change doesn't cause irreversible consequences for humans and other species depends on the fact that the increase in the average surface temperature remains below 1.5°C.
Scientists have specified that the temperature increase should be kept at the 1.5°C limit in order to be protected from the devastating effects of climate change. Therefore, carbon emissions should be reduced immediately.
If we don't reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, it is predicted that there will be an increase of approximately 3°C in global average surface temperatures by 2100.
In order to explain the situation more clearly, let us explain what will happen if there is an increase of 3°C...
The results of the 3 degrees increase are pretty scary:
Biodiversity will be endangered.
There will be difficulties with accessing water and food,
Our losses will increase due to extreme weather events and disasters,
Agricultural production will become impossible due to drought,
410 million people in the world will be exposed to severe drought,
The habitats of the 49 million people will be affected by sea-level rise and will be flooded,
Coral reefs, which provide food, protection and income to 500 million people today, will all vanish.
To prevent these, it's very important that we as brands and people adopt a sustainable life and reduce our carbon footprint.
So let's see together what we can do to protect our world
First of all, join us on Earth Hour day on 26th March and turn off your lights for an hour.
Adopt a minimalist lifestyle
We have to learn to live with what we need. We have to make the right decisions today for the next generation so they can fulfil their needs.
Learn about waste management and recycling
Failure to recycle waste causes serious resource losses, both material and energy. Therefore, we should all think about what we can do to zero waste in our homes.
Reduce the use of energy resources
We can take small steps by sitting in the dark for one hour every day, sometimes preventing the use of unnecessary electricity, water etc. The smallest action will contribute to sustainable living and change our habits.
Pay attention to the use of eco-friendly products
We may prefer eco-friendly alternatives. This choice will make us feel good and contribute to our environment and nature. Let's not forget the contribution is ineffable, whether big or small.
