Throughout its long history, Earth has warmed and cooled time and again. Climate has changed when the planet received more or less sunlight due to subtle shifts in its orbit, as the atmosphere changed, or when the Sun's energy varied. Global Warming is the unusually rapid increase in Earth's average surface temperature over the past century primarily due to the greenhouse gases released by people burning fossils fuel. Scientist predicted that as the world consumes ever more fossil fuel, greenhouse gas will continue to rise, and Earth average surface temperature will rise with them.

Earth has experienced climate changes in the past, without help from humanity. But the current climactic warming is occurring much more rapidly than past warming events, so it's a wake up call to humanity. So, it's time to move and everybody must unite because we need to save our planet Earth. How? Here are some lists to follow in order to fight against Global Warming phenomenon:

* Replace a regular incandescent light bulb with a compact fluorescent light bulb (cfl).

* Install a programmable thermostat.
* Move your thermostat down 2 in winter and up 2 in summer.
* Clean or replace filters on your furnace and air conditioner.
* Choose energy efficient appliances when making new purchases.
* Do not leave appliances on standby.
* Defrost old fridges and freezers regularly.
* Get a home energy audit.
* Use less hot water.
* Be sure you're recycling at home.
* Recycle your organic waste.
* Buy recycled paper products.
* Plant a tree.
* Switch to green power.
* Buy organic foods as much as possible.
* Encourage the switch to renewable energy.
* Encourage your school or business to reduce emissions.
* Tell Congress to act.
* Eat less meat. (Do you know that Methane is the second most significant greenhouse gas and cows are one of the greatest methane emitters? Their grassy diet and multiple stomachs cause them to produce methane, which they exhale with every breath).

These list only shows that most products we buy cause greenhouse gas emission in one or another way, during production or distribution. So, we as individual can help if we adopt a more responsible lifestyle, starting from little things everyday.

Let's mind choosing upcycled products during our next shopping day. Let's promote, use and wear products made of recycled materials from companies who are for renewable energy programs. Eco-friendly companies like TheHandbagCloset for example promotes recycling waste and old materials to reduce emission of greenhouse gases. This is a company who sells and partners with communities who has the skills to produce handicrafts and homemade recycled handbags, thus, helping to save our planet in it's catastrophic situation. The products mostly composed of handmade bags, handmade purses, wristlets, and fashioned bag accessories, all are made with recycled materials such as candy wrappers, recycled magazines, recycled juice pouches, decommissioned tires, and rice sacks. These materials are all Eco-friendly made by expert artisans from Mexico, Indonesia, and Philippines. When it comes to earth-friendly ladies bags, two brands I trust the most is the Nahui Ollin and Naveh Milo brands.

Let's help save planet Earth; let's recycle our decommissioned materials and waste. And let's switch to renewable energy. God will help us in our endeavor.
