We have exceeded our limit of using natural resources in these years. In next words, we are destructing nature very rapidly in the name of utilization. Due to such animal-like behavior of using all-natural resources randomly without seeking the consequences; we are facing many problems like global warming, landslide, rock falls, floods, etc. So in this article, we will be discussing “How Can We Contribute To Nature? “.
How Can We Contribute To Nature?
This article is not for specific people or specific regions. It is for all the conscious people like you who believe in the preservation of nature.
Yes, it is hard to start doing something new. But you should also know that every good change starts with a single person.
You may be a Civil Engineer or Technician or Civil Engineering Student or Normal Person. Whatever you are; you can contribute to nature with these ideas. So please read every point carefully.
Ways of Contributing Nature
a. Convert Your Existing Roof Into Green Roof
You can directly contribute to mother nature by converting your normal roof into a green roof.
You can also construct a green roof directly if you are going to build a new house.
Green roof not only provides aesthetic beauty to the building but also provides features like :
a. provides a rainwater buffer.
b. purifies the air.
c. reduces the ambient temperature.
d. supports biodiversity.
e. helps in improving health and well-being
f. reduce the electromagnetic radiation penetration up to 99.4 %.
g. extends the life span of the roof up to 60 years.
As green roof promotes greenery, this directly supports nature and bio-diversity.

b. Use Green Cement In Construction Rather Than Normal Cement
Another way of contributing to nature is by using green cement in place of normal cement.
Green cement can be understood as environmentally compatible cement that is developed for minimizing the carbon footprint in the production of cement.
In general practice, the manufacturing process of ordinary cement involves the production of a large amount of heat (energy) that leads to the emission of various harmful gases particularly Carbon Dioxide.
According to the statistical data, about 0.6 to 1.1 tonne of carbon dioxide is emitted for 1 tonne of cement production.
The carbon dioxide thus emitted is a chief source of air pollution. Thus, to minimize such emissions and to prevent the degradation of the environment, the concept of green cement was developed.

c. Increase The Use of Bamboo Rather Than Other Woods If Possible
Yes, you heard correct. In the US and European countries, wooden buildings are commonly utilized. The reasons behind the use of wooden buildings are reduced taxes, mobility, economy, etc.
So, utilizing bamboo in place of other woods can also indirectly help nature to revive.
Normal trees take more than 5 years to grow to normal size. But bamboo can reach maximum growth within 3 years.
Bamboo is also flexible and strong and can be used for purposes like roofing, framing, decorating, flooring, etc.
Cultivation of bamboo is also increased throughout the world which is also supporting to stop the cut of other trees that takes years or sometimes decades to grow.

d. Focus on Constructing Zero Energy Building
Another way of contributing is promoting the construction of zero energy buildings.
Zero energy building is the building in which the total amount of energy consumed is equal to the total amount of renewable energy produced by the building.
About 37 % of the global electricity is produced utilizing the coals. So, producing energy for own building utilizing renewable sources like solar energy is kept in priority in zero energy building.
This directly supports nature to revive by reducing carbon emissions.

e. Planting Trees
As every simple to a simple person knows the importance of plantation in the preservation of nature; we should run and also encourage others to run the plantation programs.
f. Promote the use of the 4R principle
The 4R- principle refers to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Recover. We should follow this principle to reduce non-biodegradable wastes.
