what you can do to help the environment:
you are a child, here are some things you can do:
energy by turning off the light when you leave your room.
trees, which are used to make paper, by using a lunch pail, rather than a paper
bag each day.
up litter that you see in your neighborhood and recycle whatever can be recycled
- aluminum cans, glass, paper, cardboard, plastic things.
your bike or walk, when you can, rather than ride in a car.
off the water while you are brushing your teeth.
less water in your bath or shower.
both sides of a piece of paper when drawing, coloring or writing.
are some things your family can do together:
paper shopping bags, rather than plastic, and reuse them at the market. Keep a
supply in your car, so you have them with you when you stop at the store.
attention to the packaging of the products you buy and buy things that come in
containers that can be recycled or reused.
possible, bring fruits and vegetables home unwrapped, rather than in plastic bags.
aluminum, glass, newspapers, cardboard and plastic containers.
water-saving devices on toilets, shower heads and faucets.
whenever possible. When you can, walk, ride a bike, or use public transportation.
trees in your yard.
babies in cloth diapers, which can be used again and again.
the winter, keep your thermostat lower and wear a sweater. In the summer, be a
little warmer than you are used to. Let the air conditioner rest, and let your
body use its thermostat.
