How You Can
Help the Environment
Linda Book's World of Music for Kids
what you can do to help the environment:
If you are a
child, here are some things you can do:
- Save energy
by turning off the light when you leave your room.
- Save trees,
which are used to make paper, by using a lunch pail, rather than a paper bag
- Pick up litter
that you see in your neighborhood and recycle whatever can be recycled - aluminum
cans, glass, paper, cardboard, plastic things.
- Ride your bike
or walk, when you can, rather than ride in a car.
- Turn off the
water while you are brushing your teeth.
- Use less water
in your bath or shower.
- Use both sides
of a piece of paper when drawing, coloring or writing.
Here are some
things your family can do together:
- Use 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.
- Pay attention
to the packaging of the products you buy and buy things that come in containers
that can be recycled or reused.
- When possible,
bring fruits and vegetables home unwrapped, rather than in plastic bags.
- Recycle aluminum,
glass, newspapers, cardboard and plastic containers.
- Use water-saving
devices on toilets, shower heads and faucets.
- Carpool whenever
possible. When you can, walk, ride a bike, or use public transportation.
- Plant trees
in your yard.
- Diaper babies
in cloth diapers, which can be used again and again.
- In 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.
