Almost 1.8 billion people across 135 countries just participated in the Earth Day event last Saturday by switching off their lights for one hour from 8:30 to 9:30pm. Malaysia is one of the countries which participates in this global energy-saving effort each year.
This is one the many initiatives around the world that are aligned to saving the environment and subsequently our planet, Earth. As world resources diminish in volume and conditions, perhaps some irreversible, it is imperative that every person makes the effort to conserve energy and resources any way he or she knows how.
Going green is generally the term used for initiatives to save the environment. One of the actions we can all take on a personal and easy-to-execute level is to not buy books but to rent books instead, including audiobooks. A library may be a good resource to borrow books but libraries may be too few and far between for easy access by all.
