At Bokashi Bran we have witnessed the fate of our environment coming ever more into the spotlight and with World Environment Day on this, the 5th of June 2020, what better time than to start reassessing your impact and relationship with nature and how you can help make our world a healthier place to live?
The online celebrations and activities hosted by Colombia and in partnership with Germany will highlight important discussions around the theme for this year’s World Environment Day which is biodiversity – “Time for Nature”.
What is Biodiversity?
Keep reading the blog as we discuss the most vital feature of our planet.
Without Biodiversity, There is No Future for Humanity
Biodiversity is where life interplays with the physical environment. It comprises several levels which begin with genes followed by individual species, then communities of creatures and finally entire ecosystems such as forests or coral reefs. These complex interactions of biodiversity have made our planet habitable for millions of years.
The air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat all rely on biodiversity. Think about how without plants there would be no oxygen and without bees to pollinate our plants, there would be no fruit or seeds to create new plants. Biodiversity produces a finely balanced and healthy system which contributes to the sustainability of our planet. Upsetting this balance puts us on the road towards catastrophe.
Nothing on earth is experiencing more dramatic change at the hands of human activity than biodiversity. The bad news is that once a species becomes extinct, there is no going back from that, but the good news is that things like climate change are reversible, and while it may take a few centuries to come right, the sooner we start, the better.
While World Environment Day will highlight that the fight for our environment will take the efforts of a global community to get our global leaders on board, making small changes in our own homes and encouraging our family, friends and neighbours to do the same will contribute greatly to start giving back to nature and re-balancing biodiversity.
So, where do you start?
Restoring the Balance
Methane gas and carbon dioxide emissions are one of the biggest contributors to climate change and much of this can be curbed by correctly disposing of food waste, believe it or not. Adopting a mindset of what comes from the soil should be returned to the soil is where it all begins. Giving back to nature by recycling your food waste in a sustainable and helpful way is something you can easily start doing from the comfort of your own home using the Bokashi Bran system.
