Small Steps You Can Take to Help Save Mother Earth


While not a major contributor to the global climate crisis, the Philippines is still part of the top 25% of low and middle income countries that produce significant greenhouse gas emissions. With Earth Day right around the corner—and carbon dioxide levels hitting an all-time highit’s time to make a change. 

Though there are larger entities that create a wider-scale impact, that doesn’t mean you can’t do your part to help curb the damage! The planet still needs a global solution in order to significantly reduce carbon emissions, but there are things that you can do on your own to lessen your ecological footprint.

First things first, educate yourself. They say knowledge is power. Before we can change the way we live, we need to understand why we need to do so. Read up and educate yourself on the consequences of the climate crisis on future generations and our individual and collective responsibilities. Share your knowledge when you can. This simple act can help us improve our relationship with Mother Earth. 

Here are other tips that you can easily do at home: 

Eat low on the food chain. 

Red meat is one of the biggest contributors to harmful emissions. We know giving up steak forever is hard, but once in a while, try swapping out red meat and processed food for plant-based meat. Even better, consider alternatives such as fish, fruits, and vegetables. Aside from reducing your personal carbon footprint, you can enjoy a healthier diet! It’s also a great way to support our local farmers and fishermen.

Use eco-friendly household products. 

Since most of us are quarantining at home, our household product consumption has increased. Unfortunately, many of these daily essentials, such as toothbrushes, shampoos, and cleaning materials, are made with toxic chemicals that harm the environment. Luckily, more brands have developed sustainable products that we can use as alternatives.

Plant your own garden

Many of us recently unleashed our inner plantitos and plantitas. It’s fun, therapeutic, and one of the best ways we can practice environmental stewardship! Your plant babies can help get rid of toxic air released by furniture and electronics. Growing an urban garden and eating your own vegetables can also help reduce the impact of transporting produce, which takes up a lot of energy. Growing and caring for your plants will benefit your overall physical and mental well-being, all while helping fight climate change.

Reduce consumption of single-use plastics.

Disposable utensils, straws, and plastic water bottles are convenient when you’re on the go, but they’re also bad for the environment. These single-use plastics all end up in landfills and waterways. However, the simple act of substituting these items with more sustainable options is already a big step towards positive change. Avoid using them and instead, purchase reusable products that can last you for years to come.

How would you like to buy your favorite plant-based products and help the environment by having a coconut tree planted on your behalf?

On top of expanding coconut supply in South Central Mindanao and helping augment the income of 16,000 farmers and their families, the new trees are expected to offset about 416,680 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions, allowing CNPF’s coconut business to be “carbon neutral” by 2028.

To join and support this project, consumers simply need to purchase bundles of Coco Mama, Vita Coco, and unMeat at Century Pacific’s food stores in Shopee and Lazada. The bundles are available from April 19 to 25.
