You are passionate about the environment and want to get the rest of us on board right? You have just done your first few articles and are wondering how to sustain the new blog with content right? Well here is a simple guide on how to sustain the blog with good content

One of the best environment bloggers in the country Macharia of Mazingira Safi is very keen on behavioral change as a means of solving our various environmental predicaments and on his website he is very clear that his long-term goal is behavior change to sustain our earth, maintain its productivity and improve the lives of all humanity. When encouraged or enforced, behavioral change can go a long way in protecting the environment. A good case in point is the ban on plastic bags in countries such as Kenya and Rwanda. You are also not allowed to litter and this has really helped in Kenya.

Basically, environmental advocacy entails presenting information on environmental and nature issues in a way that will make people become friendlier towards the environment. The information passed at this point is very opinionated and can take various forms among the text, videos, campaigns, etc.
Advocacy is very important and you can work with several organizations to ensure that the message gets to the audience. Participating in campaigns will give you more than enough information and leads to use for your articles.
