Bởi Son Vu

Earth is the only common home of humans, a place that provides us with fresh air, cool water, and valuable natural resources. However, today, the environment is facing many serious problems such as environmental pollution, climate change, biodiversity loss, etc. directly threatening human life and health. sustainable development of society. Environmental conservation has therefore become a more urgent and important task than ever, requiring the joint efforts of the entire society. Join hands with EQUO, act now to protect the environment, protect the Earth - our common home.

1. What is environmental conservation?

Environmental conservation is a set of activities aimed at preventing, controlling, minimizing, and eliminating environmental pollutants while restoring and improving environmental quality. Environmental conservation activities include many areas such as:

  • Protect water sources: Prevent water pollution, treat wastewater, and use water economically and effectively.
  • Protect the air: Minimize emissions, use clean energy, and plant trees.
  • Protect land: Prevent soil degradation, use organic fertilizers, and limit chemical use.
  • Forest conservation: Planting forests, protecting forests, preventing illegal forest exploitation.
  • Biodiversity conservation: Protect rare species of animals and plants, and build nature reserves.

Environmental conservation is the shared responsibility of the entire society, each individual and organization needs to join hands to contribute to protecting our living environment.

2. Environmental reality

Most regions in the world are facing extremely serious environmental pollution problems. Pollution appears in many different forms, including air, water, soil, noise pollution, etc. Environmental quality is increasingly deteriorating, directly affecting human health and the ecosystem.

2.1. Causes of environmental pollution

Environmental pollution is a painful problem, and a serious threat to human life and ecosystems on Earth. This problem comes from many different causes, of which the main cause comes from human activities:

  • Industrial activities: Emissions from factories, industrial parks, industrial waste, etc. are the main sources of emissions causing environmental pollution.
  • Traffic activities: Vehicles emit CO, NOx, HC, fine dust, etc. which pollute the air.
  • Deforestation: Deforestation loses the ability to absorb CO2 gas, increasing the greenhouse effect, and causing climate change.
  • Excessive exploitation of natural resources: Exploitation of minerals, oil, etc. pollutes the land and water environment.

2.2. Signs of environmental pollution

Currently, the environment is facing many serious problems:

2.2.1. Air pollution

The clear blue sky was gradually replaced by dense fog, especially in densely populated city areas and industrial zones. Emissions from vehicles, factories, plants, etc. mix to form a layer of fine PM2.5 dust suspended in the air, causing visibility to be limited and the sky to become gray.

2.2.3. Soil pollution

Soil pollution is often mainly caused by people dumping waste indiscriminately and agricultural chemical residues remaining in the soil. This can be recognized through several characteristics such as unpleasant odor, unusual color of soil, decrease in porosity and water absorption ability, the appearance of large gravel particles due to hard waste, and the decline in agricultural production caused by toxic substances from waste, reducing soil quality and affecting crop growth, harming the living environment and human health.

Signs of environmental pollution are increasing, directly affecting human health and the ecosystem. Therefore, everyone needs to join hands to protect our living environment.

2.3. Consequences of environmental pollution

Environmental pollution is an urgent problem, causing many serious consequences for humans and the Earth.

2.3.1. Affects human health

Toxic substances can cause many health problems, from respiratory problems such as asthma and pneumonia to more serious problems such as cancer. For example, air pollution caused by emissions from vehicles and factories can contain small particles of PM2.5, PM10, and other toxic substances such as CO, NOx, SOx, dioxins, and heavy metals such as Mercury and lead increasing the risk of respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, lung cancer and negatively impact the body's immune system.

2.3.2. Causing natural disasters, floods, droughts, etc.

Climate change due to environmental pollution, such as strengthening the greenhouse effect, increases temperatures globally, causing changes in the climatic environment. This leads to an increase in the intensity and frequency of natural disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, and sensations of flooding.

2.3.3. Destroying the ecosystem

When the environment is polluted, the ecosystem is out of balance, leading to many negative consequences. Toxic substances accumulate, causing biodegradation and reducing biodiversity. Degraded ecosystems affect material and energy cycles, reducing renewable capacity and resource availability, and leading to global biodiversity loss.

In the face of increasingly serious environmental changes, the problem of environmental pollution is a major challenge that we all need to join hands to solve. This is not just the responsibility of any individual or organization, but the responsibility of the entire society.

3. Why is environmental conservation important?

Environmental conservation is an urgent and important task because it is directly related to the life and development of all living things on Earth. The environment provides us with not only fresh air to breathe and clean water to drink but also precious natural resources such as forests, grasslands, rivers, lakes, and seas. Environmental conservation helps maintain biological balance, preserve natural heritage, and protect human health from risks from environmental pollution. Furthermore, preserving the environment also helps create a better living environment, minimizing natural disasters, droughts, and climate change. At the same time, protecting the environment is also caring for future generations, so they can continue to enjoy the good things from this planet.

4. Environmental conservation measures

Environmental pollution directly affects human health and the sustainable development of society. Therefore, protecting the environment is an urgent task and requires the cooperation of everyone.

4.1. Use environmentally friendly products to replace single-use plastic

The first step to making a big change for the environment is to change the habit of using single-use plastic. It seems simple, but this action has a huge impact, contributing to protecting our living environment.

EQUO accompanies you on your green journey providing a variety of environmentally friendly products, helping you easily replace disposable plastic products in daily life.

  • Plant-based straw set that decomposes itself: Made from coffee, bagasse, coconut, grass, and rice, safe for health, and completely compostable in the natural environment.
  • Food containers: Made from sugarcane bagasse, which is a sustainable natural resource that is renewable and decomposes quickly. The outstanding characteristics of bagasse fiber lie in its durability, flexibility in packaging, and breathable and waterproof qualities.
  • Utensils: This is a great choice for eco-friendly and durable tableware sets.
  • Paper cups and lids with water-based coating: Using a water-based coating, instead of plastic (PP, PE, or PLA), helps the production process emit less carbon dioxide (CO2) and minimizes negative impacts on the environment during decomposition compared to regular paper cups. These cups completely decompose in the natural environment within 18 weeks and come in various sizes, suitable for a wide range of uses.

4.2. Planting and protecting forests

Afforestation is an effective measure to improve environmental quality and reduce pollution. Forest trees not only clean the air by absorbing CO2 and producing oxygen but also help limit soil erosion and maintain soil moisture. In particular, forests can absorb large amounts of CO2, helping to reduce the greenhouse effect and stabilize the global climate. Afforestation also brings many economic and social benefits, creating income and jobs for communities, while also providing sources of wood and other forest products.
