Go Green and Keep the Earth Clean

Scientists agree that our planet is in jeopardy because of the threat of environmental challenges, such as air and water pollution; destruction and depletion of the ozone layer, forests, soil, oil fields, energy and water; accumulation and distribution of toxic wastes; and emission of greenhouse gases.

Environmental changes and challenges are mainly caused by human activities, however impact the survival of all living species, the integrity of the earth, the security of nations, and the heritage of future generations.

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children

There is a need for urgent action to address environmental problems by changing people’s and institutions’ behaviors to reverse the trend and repair the damage. Environmental issues have become a major area of research and also concern in twenty-first century.

As awareness and interest have increased towards environmental problems, the discussion of environmental sustainability has become widespread in many governments and organizations. Organizations including libraries are taking measures to reduce their damage on the environment.

Libraries are taking a proactive role in green practices by helping communities they serve to become green and sustainable. They lead, set example to and act as role models for sustainability. Libraries become green with their buildings, operations and practice, programs and services, systems and collections.
