World Environment Day: Are You Doing Your Bit?

self-sufficiency

Being eco-friendly and doing your bit for the environment doesn’t mean that you have to become entirely self-sufficient. Self-sufficiency is interlinked with sustainability, and together, the two can go a long way towards improving both your life and the lives of others around you.

One of the best ways to become more self-sufficient is to introduce a bunded steel tank into your life. It may not be the first idea which springs to mind, but bunded steel tanks can actually help in a wide variety of ways when it comes to self-sufficiency and becoming more environmentally-friendly.

A bunded steel tank can be repurposed for a full range of uses. Whether it is used as part of the rainwater harvesting process as a secure water storage facility, perfect for keeping your garden or allotment hydrated, or whether you choose to use it to store oil for your home fuel and heating requirements, these tanks can easily be adapted to suit your needs. In addition, bunded steel tanks can also be used in more commercial applications, with the larger models being perfect for use on farms and in industrial settings.

World Environment Day

World Environment Day, celebrated on 5th June each year, is the ideal time to start getting to grips with self-sufficiency and exploring your own individual impact on the world around you.

The day was set up with the aim of encouraging people to think about how their actions might reflect on the planet and to raise awareness of the importance of looking after our environment in any way that we can. After all, keeping the environment in good order is essential for our overall health and general wellbeing, so it is definitely something important to keep in mind.

Why Choose Self-Sufficiency?

Self-sufficiency is all about reducing any negative impacts that we may have on the planet. At its extreme, those who are fully self-sufficient do not require any outside aid or support in order to live their lives – their survival is not dependent on anyone else.

Of course, the state of complete self-sufficiency is simply not attainable for the vast majority of people. However, part self-sufficiency is a great way to take responsibility for our own actions and work towards becoming more eco-friendly in our daily lives. After all, even something like switching to a rainwater harvesting system can save massive amounts of water that would otherwise be used from a hosepipe. Similarly, investing in a home oil heating system can help you to become more aware of your fuel consumption as well as reducing heating bills in the long run.
