You’re probably tired of constantly hearing about environmental crisis and thinking that there is nothing you can do to contribute to saving the issue that gets bigger day by day, after all we get the same thought, what can one do in the face of all these critical issues?
Well, I can’t tell you that there a 100% effective solution but I can tell you how you can limit your own personal toxic contribution that harm the environment. It might not be much but it is something, the result might not appear in a day or two but on the long run, it certainly will.
Here are 6 simple ways to contribute to saving the environment:
1. Use Reusable Bags
The plastic bags you use for grocery end up in the ocean or landfills which can suffocate animals as they mistake them for food, that and in addition to bags taking a long time to decompose. Whether you’re shopping for books, clothes or groceries, use reusable bags instead in order to cut down on litter.
You can buy one paper bag and use it constantly when shopping, Metro supermarket started this initiative and you can buy the bag for 5 pounds only.
2. Print Less
It always bothered me as a college student to see the amount of paper used daily in printing, I remember how students printed each slide in a paper instead of choosing the option of printing several slides in one page. Try to print as less as you can, you can also try shifting to e-readers and choosing soft copies over hard ones, teachers care about the environment and would certainly understand your reasons.
Recycling is easier and not as hard as many people claim, the least you could do is when you see a recycling bin, throw your garbage in its right category. You can also collect all of your plastic wastes and call a company to come collect them for recycling, that way you won’t be saving the environment only but you can also get cash!
4. Don’t Throw Your Notes Away
By the end of your semester, you end up with a ton of paper waste from all the notes, but instead of throwing them away, you can either contact a company to come collect your notes and books or simply give it to a student in need! There a lot of those indeed who could really benefit from your notes.
5. Save Water
Water scarcity is one of the most critical issues facing Egypt in specific, and contributing to saving this issue begins with you! There are so many ways for you to help starting by turning off the faucet while you brush you teeth, turning your shower on right as you’re about to get in and cutting down on long showers and limiting you water usage as you do the dishes.
Owning a car is a necessity in Egypt but try whenever you can to limit using your car and carpooling when it’s possible, this will not only save the environment but will save you tons of money!
Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox Church Suspends Services for One Month
Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox churches have announced the suspension of masses and other services in both Cairo and Alexandria as of Monday and the suspension will last for a month.
The suspension comes in light of the rising numbers of Covid-19 cases among clergymen and churchgoers.
The Coptic Orthodox Church on Saturday released an official statement that says the suspension includes Sunday’s schools, meetings, services and masses, and that priests in each church are allowed one mass weekly with a minimal presence and a maximum of five deacons only.
As for funeral services, they’re allowed to be held but with the participation of only one priest and one deacon and of course the family of the deceased. However, the halls that are designated for mourning services will be closed until the improvement of current conditions.
For Baptism services, the maximum number allowed are four member of the baby’s family.
The statement added that study at institutes and educational centres will carry on but with a reduced maximum of 25%.
As for the dioceses, each bishop get to decide what is most suitable to the health situation in his diocese, in partnership with the congregation of priests.
We urge all worshipers to remain safe and adhere to all the precautionary measures needed.
