Among the countless changes we have experienced during the ongoing pandemic, one of the more surprising is its seemingly positive effect on the environment.
Recent data released by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the European Space Agency (ESA) shows that pollution in some of the COVID-19 epicenters has been reduced as much as 30%.
With today being World Environment Day, it’s a great time to focus on ways we can help maintain those improvements in the long term!
This year, the focus of World Environment Day is biodiversity, which refers to the number of species of plants, animals, and microorganisms; the diversity of genes within those species; and the planet’s different ecosystems, such as deserts, rainforests, and coral reefs. The more biologically diverse our Earth is, the healthier it is.
And because 71% of Earth is water, protecting our planet’s biodiversity depends in large part on that water being clean. It can feel overwhelming to think about how much work it would take to clean up that amount of water and keep it from becoming polluted in the future. That’s why it’s important for us to focus on the small things everyone can do that, when added up, make a big difference for the planet we call home.
For example, consider how much laundry has to be washed every week (or even every day) in your own household. You may use hot water often, especially for extra-dirty clothes, or bedding and towels. According to Business Insider, you’ll save energy (and money!) by using only cold water to wash laundry. In fact, roughly 75 percent of the energy required to do a load of laundry goes into heating the water!
Another benefit of using cold water – your clothes will last longer and look better! That’s because hot water tends to break down dyes and cause shrinkage. Using cold water means less money spent on replenishing your wardrobe AND fewer clothing items going into landfills, so it’s a win-win situation for you and your planet.
WorldEnvironmentDay.global suggests minimizing the use of household chemicals that can have toxic effects on soil and groundwater, such as laundry detergent. Here’s the good news – you can wash your laundry with no detergent at all … and using NO hot water!
