Surveys Showing Need for Eco-Friendly Development

Over the past decade or so, there has been a pronounced interest in the discussion about global warming and eco-friendly means of controlling it. Wherever you stand on the issue of global warming (seeing as it a big political hot button topic) I think we can all agree that we’d like to preserve the well being of the Earth as best as we can, so that future generations can enjoy it like we have. Interestingly enough, one recent land survey actually indicated that green development is one of the essential ways that we can make our environment more sustainable in the future.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, a leading organization in the standards of land, property and construction, released the results of some land surveying that found that the land under our feet is being polluted at a faster rate than some would have us believe. The only way to maintain any sense of sustainability is to begin going green in all aspects of life.

There are many ways to help stop the pollution that is affecting the land. Here are a few ways to do so:

• Unplug your portable electronic chargers when not in use
• Buy eco-friendly rated appliances that save on overall electricity usage
• If you remove trees from your property, make sure to replant trees or other plants in their place.
• Turn off the water as often as possible when completing daily activities like washing dishes and brushing your teeth.

This kind of study sheds light on the importance of land surveying in the fight against pollution and other harmful environmental concerns. The depth with which surveyors can investigate particular swatches of land is crucial to the survival of our world and its atmosphere.
