Good Essays
Has a person ever woke up in the morning and walked outside only to find trash (i.e. a can, papers, or bags) thrown in their yard. A mess they did not make but are no responsible for cleaning up. Does not seem very fair to most people. Look at the way God may think. God looks down and sees the care his people puts into the very planet that He created for them. People burning things into the atmosphere ruining the protective ozone layer that is over the Earth.

Someone who has never actively thought about being green, may not know how and when to start. Start small, by doing so it could look like several different examples.

By keeping those products away, you are preserving the Earth and helping by not wasting trees. Why not start a garden with a different assortment of foods being grown? By doing this you will be using the land like God intended it and taking better care of your own body by using organic foods instead of processed foods. After getting use to these everyday task, go out and teach others about the damages that they could be doing to the environment and encourage them to look at different solutions for their everyday lives. Going out and teaching others can lead to relationships being formed and could also help teach others about Christ and the reason why Christ cares about the Earth.
