Here's 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 each day.
  • 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.
